The challenge here was to use an oxymoron in my title. I chose this photo of Daisy. I had already printed it out large. I used natural cardstock as my base & cut a frame for putting around the edge with this very cute printed cardstock (KI Memories I think...) It's a nursery paper featuring little creatures & the best I can get here to mimick the new Sassafrass range of papers with all the little woodland creatures, etc. I inked around the outside & inside of the frame heavily with dark brown ink for a distressed effect.
I used a making memories circle sticker as a journalling spot & some of their tiny ledger alphas for the date.
Aren't these snails just the cutest?... It's amazing what you can do with a sheet of printed cardstock if it has some nice elements. I keep a bag of papers with elements I want to cut out, behind my bedside table, ready for cutting in the evenings when I am relaxing in my bedroom.
This layout has been on the Journaling Junkie blog for over a week now but I haven't had an opportunity to post it yet. There is a DT call going on over there at the moment so why not pop in & take a look...
BTW the yellow daisy on the layout is IN THE PHOTO & not an embellishment on top. Chelsea took this excellent photo & I saturated the flower in Picasa to make it pop. What dya think???
