K+ for JANUARY - get WRITING!!!!

Hey there! Yup, it's a NEW YEAR.
Here's to a good one!
I hope you find time among the celebrations to join us at KRAFT + for this:
Well, as you know, I do rather enjoy writing. A bit. OK. A lot.
And I actually don't mind my writing. I did a calligraphy course years
ago & I think that gave me a bit of confidence.
So, I'm going to give you the journaling first.
There's a lot. Luckily for you guys there's a scroll button if it doesn't
float your boat!!!
Oh, I had a bit of fun doing a MM background on this one;)

And lastly:
So, I've filled the white space with journaling. Here's
my whole page:
And one last closie of the cluster on the left:

On the background I used ripped print strips, the cog cluster stencil from Dusty Attic,
then gesso, ink spray then some stamping....
This is a FABULOUS challenge to 'get your teeth pen' into...
hope you can join us at KRAFT PLUS!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  7. I'm a huge fan of using your own writing on layouts..I think because when my dad died he left me only one tiny sample of his handwriting. I think this is wonderful!

  8. Dig it! Love the painted background and the two photos that are different sizes side by side and...I REALLY dig those mud boots in the photo! Those made me happy! Super cool page and I might have to just dig out my pen and give it a whirl!

  9. This page just melts my heart! As a Mother of Sons, the way you write so lyrically and poignantly about your Boy/Man just brought tears to my eyes. At first glance I thought the little boy was Lucas! Beautiful, beautiful work - THIS is why we scrap, to tell our stories and let them know how wide and how deep our love is for them. "sniffle"

  12. Fabulous journalling, so heartfelt and lovely. I always love the way you write onto your layouts, and it always looks as if it belongs there, not just an afterthought, the way memory keeping should be. And of course, an amazingly creative LO too. Inspiring me, as always.
