Kraft IT UP !!

over at KRAFT IT UP this month the challenge is all about 
JOURNALING ..
finding inspiring and creative ways to journal 
my journaling is perched in the top left corner with overlapping
circles and the word love .. 
I used olive glimmer mist and a mask to create the background on kraft paper 


close up of the background .


the journaling reads -- 
As long as we have memories, yesterday remains,
as long as we have HOPE, tomorrow awaits,
as long as we have "ART" today is beautiful !!!!

I fell in love with this quote and felt it was perfect for this page
Gardening and nature are two of my many passions ..
art and creating ...
thanks for droppin' by
and for all the wonderful comments you leave me .
you are all very special to me 
big hugz from me xox

I sent you a copy of the book yesterday and I am wondering if you can check your email...I just want to know that you like your part in it so I can send it to be published...There won't be any changes to the story, but there may be another added to the book...I just want to make sure that you see yours. Thank you so much, my friend.

  21. This is so lovely!!! :) And I love that quote! Is that your handwriting??

  22. This is beautiful Heather! The colours are so lovely and I just adcore that Crafter's Workshop stencil. The olive green against the craft is just lovely - it makes me want to buy that exact mist. Please let me know the exact colour name as that is definitely next on my list - I am mist crazy right now. Is the "Love" & the journaling stamping or your handwriting? Gosh if that is your handwriting it is absolutely perfect! Great job!! Hope you had a lovely Monday xx

  39. Is that Olive Vine you have used for the misting? it is just so perfect with the kraft! love all the WP verdure accents, this is such a gorgeous page Heather, can almost see you in your garden next to the flower beds that Mother Nature has blessed with her abundance. Perhaps a squirrel or two and birds perched in the fruit trees. I adore it! xoxox
