The old mojo is not really working at the moment. I don't really know why, I desperately want to craft but keep coming up with excuses not to. When I do get my sorry a--e up to my desk I just seem to shift paper and stuff around and make a mess. So it was quite surprising to get this layout done. It was a bit of a first for me as I had no idea what I was going to do, no plan or image in my head. I was feeling brave and didn't shift the papers and embellishment around, lay them out before I stuck....I just seized the moment and randomly stuck stuff down.
Although it's not my best work I am still pretty happy with it. Especially the butterflies, glimmer misted, stamped and then crackle glazed. Oh a word of warning....distress inks bleed when covered with crackle glaze, but although you can't tell what the stamp was I like the result. For some reason the crackle glaze wanted to fall off when dried so a layer of glossy accents came to the rescue.
The layout didn't really have a story behind it but I liked the photos of hubby and I out on one of our walks and it set me thinking. While out walking, it's our time to relax, maybe share the odd in-joke but generally we don't feel the need to fill in the whole walk with conversation, being comfortable together....we are just being us.
