Life's Journey

Hi just sharing my layout for the challenge over at

The challenge was to use yellow in any quantity. Boy what to do I thought, so I mixed up some yellow acrylic paint in a mister bottler, and some black paint in a mister bottle. Using a white sheet of bazzill I sprayed the paints on the page.

Then I got out the builders mesh and placed one strip on the page. Using my modelling paste I have randomly applied it over the page and the builders mesh. A final touch up with the yellow mister bottle, then using my favourite mesh stamp and some Tim Holtz distress ink – mustard seed I stamped the mesh. Now the base is complete.

For my photo mat I used some yellow card stock, and using foil tape and a rivet embossing folder ran it through the big shot. I applied some white acrylic paint to the embossed foil sheet waited a moment or two for it to partly dry, then using paper towel I wiped most of the paint off. Then I stapled my photos and photo mats together and taped to the page.

I had the perfect vellum quote – “Life’s Journey”, then some metal charms and some brads, and a couple of hearts from the stash and I am done.

Thanks for dropping by, Sharon xxx
