Kraft Plus - October

Another fabulous page at Kraft Plus for October.

Kraft, plus "inspired by nature".

Here is my page and some close ups:

I created this background with texture paste through a script and word stencil. Then I stuck down some strips of washi as well as some of the chipboard hearts and the chipboard feathers (from Scrapmatts). Next I used Gesso but mixed with water to do the white-washed background over parts of the page, and including the chipboard. Then I sprayed some Dylusions spray mist (in Pure sunshine); I used a baby wipe to wipe some of the colour around, which was also handy to add the same colour to some of the paper flowers. A few splatters of Dylusions and of Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine and my background was done!

Some of the embellishments include:
Hessian leaves from Rainbow Splendour
Punchinella, paper flowers, resin flowers & enamel dots from D-lish Scraps.

But of course, for me, the title and the journaling are the most important part of this page. I need to scrapbook some of the difficult parts of my life, including fighting to save my marriage! Making this page, connecting with my heart and writing those words- gives me the strength I need for the fight. And it is all worth it!

Thanks for looking!

Good on you, I say.....& I ADORE how you've constructed your bg....the bits of washi and the scattered feathers look fab.
