Life's Journey

It's reveal day at My Creative Sketches, and this month's inspiration comes from this lovely sketch by Liz Chidester.

I used papers mainly from BoBunny's The Avenues collection for my layout, the colours of which I think match the colours in my photos perfectly! I also combined these with a couple of papers from the Gabrielle collection, which complemented The Avenues collection so well.

I inked and water-distressed the papers, and embellished the layout with paper doilies, some lace, flowers and metal embellishments.

I also used 3D foam dots for the mounted photos to give the layout some depth and dimension.

Here are some close-up shots.

I so love this quote - it's one of my all-time favourites.

Now, come and join in the fun at MCS! Hop on over to the MCS blog for more inspiration, and also to check out the amazing prize that's been put together for this month's winner.
