WORDS & PAINTERY 1st ever challenge!!

I love finding new challenge blogs, especially ones where the DT is as fabulous as over at WORDS & PAINTERY! So, I'm joining in with this:


I do love a bit o' MM [mixed media!] & I've actually used a 3rd Eye brick mask with a water colour pencil, then filled in using some gelatos....plenty of painting happening here..even the little butterflies got a dash:)
 And I might be a tad fixated on gold embossing atm...but that little 3rd Eye star stamp did it to me....not my fault;)
 ...& I ADORE how the 3rd Eye flair fit into the botttlecaps!
Below you can see a bit more of my 'painterly' bg & the journaling. This one is all about the 'story':
 And below is the whole page:
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments & fabulous support
Lizzy ♥♥♥

  9. Oh I could imagine the heart racing when she couldn't find Lucas, and there he was unawares of his worried mum! Reading! That is a wonderful thing for him to be enjoying! Love your background details, love the pops of gold, and always love a textured brick wall on a background! And enjoy your Friday!

  10. What a wonderful layout. You have picked the colours up from the gorgeous photo so well. I love how you do the gold embossing and the journalling is special as is the whole layout. I also love how the layout has the illusion of I feel like I am looking down from a height. Perfect moment, perfect layout

  11. Words and paint? This fits the bill perfectly! I love that background, but I'm also very taken with the design which pulls the eye round the page and leaves space for all that journaling

  21. Such a great page Lizzy....and I love the greens and blues! Super photo too! Boys tend to get very engrossed in their books or car playing etc...and then develop selective hearing....strange that!!!!!!! ;-)))))
