Before You Go!

A layout I made after the Cardinal Colours retreat.
Together with Linda, I assisted in SJ's class when she taught this page, but brought my kit home to play afterwards.
The class was called 'White Space'.

The glazed Bazzill cardstock is spritzed with two colours of Tattered Angel glimmer mists, then the xcess mopped up to show off the glazed pattern.
Patterned papers are from an 8"x8" pad by Glitz Designs, from a collection called 'Afternoon Muse'. The flowers were cut from these papers and the patterned strips were cut and trimmed with border punches.
The text photo mat was taken from an old gardening text book, crumpled, torn and inked.
The green glittery alphabet stickers are from K and Co.
I used a random selection of buttons from my stash.
The tag s made from patterned paper, it has hidden journalling and is attached with butcher's twine.

Most of these items are still available from Cardinal Colours.

My photo was taken on the day before my daughter Emily returned to Nottingham for her second year of university. The journalling tells of how I wanted one last photo before she went away again. She is pictured with her treasured possessions as a student of creative and professional writing - her notebook / diary, kindle, Filofax and beloved camera.
