1950's FAMILY PHOTO...

OMG its Friday already I am losing days at the moment, I need for time to slow down just by two days then I can get on top of everything its madness here. Anyways with Friday comes a brand new Palette from TCR and this weeks #114 is a fabulous selection of brown and gold hues. I was so struck by Dells page this week [it was her layout that sold me on the palette as its not one I would normally go for], so I decided I best play along and use some more of the PP's supplied my this months sponsor Feature Arts

Here is my page using braided rice papers from Feature Art, some fabulous Tissue Napkins from my friend Kyla's FB page Left of Centre and a few cute embellishments like the Glass Mushroom and the Cherry Blossom from D-Lish Scraps all of which worked perfectly into the palette. I also created the background by simply inking the 12X12 Circle Grid by TCW and then roughly gessoing over the top. and then collaged some papers and finally machine stitched some crazy stitching.

Here is my digi version which I created after photographing the base of the trad page and rendering it on PS to create a digital paper, not sure which one I like best!
Okay so thats it for today no more blogging I promise, my gosh this is my third entry between the two I have lol...sorry 'bout that! ;) Have a great long weekend everyone and TFL.
P.S This is my 200th post so am very excited and not surprised I still have something to babble on about tee hee :)
