As you can see this was a very autumnal mood board, but my photo was taken while on holiday in the Algarve. It was Autumn there, but it felt more like a hot summer's day! I decided to go ahead and use this photo anyway, partly because the colour of the wall seemed to match, but mostly becuase I like the story that goes with it.
The story: two parts really. The first is that glazed eye look that always give away a selfie - well it does mine anyway! The second is a bit of a family joke that my husband struggles to frame photos and after several attempts to cach this shot we decided to go it alone.
I started the page by placing the photo and papers and faintly marked the space so that I could add the stencilled ink patterns to frame it all. Then I stamped and hand cut the flower and leaf embellishments and added some trios of nuvo drops.
The title and journalling were the last parts to be completed.
