Hi there everyone! I do hope you are well this fine Monday,
well Tuesday already for some over to the East! I am in fine
fettle. Spring has Sprung and being a born and bred African
warm weather brings out the best in me and I was back in the
gym first thing this morning & have a Zumba class booked
for first thing tomorrow morning! When the sun is shining
and the rain has gone away then all is right in my world :)
Today I am sharing my 5th and last layout made for my
Guest Designer stint over at C'est Magnifique this month.
I had a blast there with Leslie and her team of fine designers
& thank them all most warmly for having me. I only
have the main photo to show you, no close ups as they
were lost on my hard-drive along with my last 6 months
worth of photographs :( I will retake them soon!
I created the photo collage in Picasa after editing the photos
with the Focal B + W function. I added a lot of depth and texture
to the background paper first using gesso, gel medium, inks,
mists and various stencils. I tucked some frayed bandaging
under the photo collage, fussy-cut the hot-air balloons & tucked
in some blooms & bling that I had split up from one flourish.
A Prima wooden bird, Heidi Swapp banner delights inked in lilac
& Dear Lizzy Thickers complete my layout.
