Ooh I am really pleased with this one!
I am really pleased with the way this turned out but I dont think I am quite finished yet. I want to do some more detailed journaling and I have those ribbons and buttons and tassels that i am still toying with.
I made little torches out of squares of paper.
I gutted the paper so I could make the most of that pretty rose design.
I cut out the roses and made the arc above the main photo. I used them because they reminded me of the laurel wreaths the olympians used to wear.
So what did I use.... My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Nutmeg History Blooms, Nutmeg Memories Rose Patch, Nutmeg Hanging Out Rainbow papers, Tombow, Woodware Chippies Alphabet, Woodware foam pads and Colorbox Yellow Chalk Ink to colour the letters.
Phew! It didnt turn out cheesy at all in the end. I just went for it!
Hope you had a happy monday too.
