  I have used the topic of documenting about the one you love, and for the testimony I have used paint, wreath, woodgrain, jars, flowers, ribbon, hearts, metal and distressing. I have used a photo of my Darling Grand daughter as she is someone I love so very dearly! (And the photo matched the colors which I have used on my layout!!)

some closer views..
I started my page with patting some water color paint around the back ground. when that was dry I began creating..

just a closer view of the little jars I put on my layout and the woodgrain paper..

Just a closer look at the wire heart in the cluster.

KRAFT+ - February .

Hello there,
wow I am sorry I am a bit late for this post for the new challenge for KRAFT+ - February but I have had computer problems again.. but... hopefully it is fixed now..
This month our inspiration is to come from Books, ones you have read, or simply use book pages on your creation..
  I was just simply inspired to use old book pages as embellishments for my page.. I have been to lifeline when they had a massive book sale and got a carton of old books and I have used pages from one of those.. generally speaking I love books and would not wreck them so these old pages have graced my layout..

some closer views.
and I just had to use a Charms Creations book page heart in the cluster on my page..

I also glued some papers strips on the back ground and then stenciled over it and lightly painted gesso to soften the look..


That background Kraft paper is sooo old, so glad to finally use it!! You can check out the Design Team inspiration over on the KRAFT+ Blog and join in with the Kraft+ community on FACEBOOK HERE!!!

Thanks for dropping by, it feels like February is gunna fly by quickly..  Thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read too...  until next time.. take care..
