Today I finally sat in the garden with my needle and thread and added those final finishing touches.
It's been a while since I played along with OLW.
I adore these challenges and find the team so inspiring.
I haven't had chance to be as creative as I would like recently. Work seems to be taking over everything, but these past few days I've been pushing myself to find some creative time and I feel so much better for it.
I need it.
The word this month is 'CRAZY'. I instantly thought of my mad family.
Dad is due over next month and life just goes crazy for a few days whilst he's over. The journaling reads:
the time has almost come. dad will arrive from the States and the rest of the family will join us. Our 4 will become 11 for a few days. There will be lots of laughter, rude jokes, noise, late nights & early mornings as we will want to spend as much time together as we can. There will be picnics, late night snacking with movies, fun days out, games, catching up & just being together. My family are mad. These few days will be crazy. bring it on!
I used a gorgeous pp from Glitz for my frame. The days of the week paper is a Cocoa Daisy exclusive. I made my own tag and added a fabric Cosmo Cricket brad. The alphas are foam grey thickers which I transformed using my fingers and acrylic paints.
The finishing touches before adding the journaling are some inktense blocks.
A very therapeutic page for me to make.
If you are interested, here is the OLW challenge blog.
There is a DT call until the end of today.
And before I head off to help Ade with the bbq. This was me getting creative again this morning in the garden whilst Ade dug the flower beds : )
Enjoy the last bit of your weekend xx
