So proud of myself





I can't believe I finished three pages last night. The pics are all from our trip to CA this past June. I wanted them all to have the same basic concept and I did want to use the same papers on all of them. But when it came down to it Tessa's pic really didn't go with the bright surfboard paper! I still need to journal a bit on all of them but I like to take my time with that and get the right words down on paper. I really hate rushing my journaling because then I go back and think, "why did I write that"?
For "Surfer and Dude" I used a alpha set called serendipity from Technique Tuesday. I cuttlebugged the surfboard paper on the Surfer lo to give it more texture. I used the SU whimsical lower for "Beach Baby". I also used another TT set for the dots. I used SU Doodle This with white craft ink on Tessa's lo. I used petaloo flowers and buttons as well. I inked around the journaling block with cool carribean to bring in the blue. Have a great day! Misty
