Timeless


Hello, and thanks for calling in and it's something different, although still in my favourite vintage style.  I've been lacking in inspiration since coming back from holiday, so hubby suggested 'try something different'  so I've started a journal.   It's only 11 x 16cm so there's no stress to fill a large page and I thought a good opportunity to use some neglected rubber.

As the current them at TioT is Circles, and there's still have another week left to link up,  I took inspiration from that.  The image is from Oxford Impressions April in Paris plate.  I used a watery wash of Bundled Sage distress stain and Frayed Burlap distress crayon for the circles and edges, and Tarnished Brass highlights.

I must  admit I really did enjoy making this page and it did de-stress for a couple of hours - at the moment I've got a 'gremlin' in the computer who calls in frequently and opens and closes tabs while I'm busy and then locks me out for a couple of hours, and typical - my computer is just a couple of months out of guarantee.  If he sticks around  and I go missing, you'll know he's won!

Have a great day,
Avril xx

Oh, that's magical! I love how you've used the circle motif, especially to frame the vintage photo, and the colours are so delicate and pretty. Brilliant page spread... I hope we'll be seeing more - I think your husband might have hit on something here!! Hope you can sort out your gremlin.
