Being snowed in though did give me time to play along with the latest challenge going on over at Color...Stories...Inspiration (C.S.I). I actually finished this page in one sitting. It was just a burst of inspiration--don't you just love it when you get those!
I'm also entering this in the current 'Go Crazy' challenge for Berry71bleu. I used bold colors on this page, combined several different elements onto one page & actually did a first which was to spray the entire page with a shimmering mist--more details on this coming up.
This page is actually about me. Once in a while I'll do a page on just lil' ol' me. Simply because us scrappers hardly ever do that. If you think about it though--if there's one bit of legacy you wish to pass down to your future generations; what better legacy than yourself? So that's exactly what I'm doing here. Now that I'm actually going to start a new chapter in my life--that of a mom--I keep thinking to myself what would I want my child to know about me? As parents we spend the majority of our lives trying to understand, guide & just plain figure our kids out. But our kids don't really figure us out or truly understand us until they become young adults themselves. At least that's how it was for me. I didn't really understand my mom & all her hard work until I was in my early 20's.
So the journaling on this page consists of four things that I'd like my future child to know about me. It's a bit on the private side--meant for his eyes only--but like the title of my page states--it's four things about me that I feel he 'should know'.
For my evidence I have the following: stripes, flowers, swirls, transparent element, doily pattern & something that rolls up
For my testimony: I journaled 4 things about my subject--which is me
My title was printed on a transparency & adhered with clear dry glue.
As previously mentioned, I actually did a first on this page too--I spritzed it entirely (except for the photos) with Shimmeringz Bronzed Bombshell. It actually added this nice soft brown/goldish shimmer to my entire page that I really loved. You can kind of see that shimmer in this photo.
The grey & orange flowers are by Prima as are the flourishes, the light bulb & the wooden 'dreams' trinket.
The cute little resin bird is also by Prima.
Another little embellishment that has become customary on my pages lately are my little glass vials full of beads. I've adhered one here yet again right next to one of my photos.
The grey resin cameo tucked underneath my ribbons is by Webster's Pages.
Thanks to all of you who stop by for a visit! Enjoy the rest of the your week...
