Some recent pages

In January of this year, the book club that I attend came to my home for lunch and after lunch a walk along the beach.  This layout uses all Stampin' Up! (r) product except for alphas and glimmer mist sprayed onto the cardstock.  Inspired by a layout by Sue Parsons p108 Celebrating Scrapbooking Memories Vol 15 No. 9
 In October last year I attended a scrapbooking retreat run by SFS.  We were asked to go to an op shop and purchase an outfit for I believe $20.  All that I am wearing came from various op shops around where I live.  I love the skirt and as you can see I worked it - a full flared skirt.  I have kept the skirt and the two tops and wear them regularly.  The reminder I donated once again.
I have attempted to replicate certain elements of the skirt on my layout - the colour, flowers and wavy lines. The photo does not show clearly that there are dots between the wavy lines on the skirt.
I dabbed my gelato crayon onto contrasting blue cardstock (see below) and then used aqua pen to spread the colour, I then cut out wavy lines and matted with Olive Green CS by Stampin' Up! (r).  Other Stampin' Up! products are the Petite Petal stamp/punch and leaf die cut, that represent the flowers scattered on the skirt.  I made a wash of the gelato and stamped the stamp into this before putting onto CS and punching out. Some rhinestones add the bling.
Journalling is behind the photo - you can just see the rhinestones to the left of the photo.
Thank you for looking, Margaret
