Couple of Layouts and Journal Pages

 Evening folks, well the last of my three boys is in school full time, So I have the house to myself every day so  I'm attempting to set some time each day for crafting.

First up is a layout of my Niece at Weymouth Beach, I have had this layout on the to finish pile for ages but I just didn't have the right font lettering for the title I had in mind until now.

Thankfully I came a cross these Silver Glitter letters being sold on a craft for sale site on Facebook :)
 I thought the title was very fitting " Bathing Beauty"
 I used Pink Card Stock for the Base and then some stickers and papers from Echo Park's Splash Collection along with some papers from my scraps box.

 Next up is a layout put together using Creative Scrappers 201 Sketch
 I put this layout together using papers from my Scrap Paper Box
 I quite like how the Layout turned out, even though it wasn't what I had in mind when I set out. I did a bit of inking, scrunching and distressing and a rare thing from me was I used a photo of me and based my journalling on me.

 Journalling reads: " 30 yrs today, love to be unique, Love Dragons, Vampires and Crafting. Don't try to be something I'm not. I'm happy being Simply Me!" really wasn't sure what to write.
Journal pages Next. First one I'm not sure it's complete to be honest. If I had a stamped image of Stampotique's Smushasha I'd use that and do some journalling but need to do some saving.

 I used Dylusions Ink Sprays Sky Blue and Lime for ghosting and spraying through Crafter's Workshop Circle Explosion, Paint Lids and Black and White, Royal Blue Acrylic Paint and Black Spur Plasterboard Tape.
 Bit different for me but love the song Waiting For Forever by Delta Goodrem and the truth behind the lyrics so decided to use the chorus for my Journal page.
 The Ink for the background was mop up left over from other projects I have attempted. I tried using  Crafters Workshop Chicken Wire 6x6 template to create a ghosting effect and it worked in some areas.
The journalling I hand drew with pencil and then went over with a Black Promarker and then with my White Paint Pen I added shadow to make it stand out more think it turned out ok.  I used a border from The Further Round The Edge Stamp set by Dyan Reavely and found the skeleton and wings separate through Pinterest and stuck them down in place and again made them stand out by outlining with Black Promarker and White Paint Pen. 

The Journalling reads "Why Don't You Stop? Waiting For Forever Forever Might Never Come". And the other side I have written another verse of the song "'cause the now  the now is the only time that matters". 

Thanks for looking and as always love reading your comments. So sorry again that I seem to be taking to long between Blog Posts x
