Providence Scrapbook Page

providence sb page w border.jpg

This has been a busy year, and I have already filled a huge Creative Memories 12x12 album with 2012 up to now. This page will start Book Two of 2012. Although it is not a happy page, it is part of our lives right now, so the page belongs in “the book.” It’s a good reminder anyway.

I used a real lace doily I had picked up at JoAnn’s. The tag is inked with Wild Honey and Peacock Feathers and then covered with natural sticky-back canvas inked with Coffee Archival Ink on a Wendy Vecchi stamp. The seam binding is dyed with Peacock Feathers. The little grunge board bird is painted with Espresso Paint Dabber. The background paper is from Graphic 45 Le Romantique.

You are so disciplined to scrap so much of life as it goes along. There never seem to be enough hours in the day, but memories, like butterflies, can float away if not captured. We in the UK need to learn a thing or two from you guys in the States.
Thank you for sharing your life as well as your art. Hugs and the best of wishes to you and your family, Buttons x

Beautiful page! I can see that you have fallen in love with "peacock feathers," too. I would love to know how you tie your beautiful, multi-layered bows.
