The beginning of a new year means I should be looking forward and I am - really, lots to look forward to including a return trip to Italy in Spring and a wedding (Yay! Number one son is getting married!)in Autumn. The other day though I was reflecting on last year, looking through photos and journals and this journal page just sort of evolved!
In one of my journals there are quite a lot of mop up pages so I decided to use one of them. I had already doodled around the edges and then added some scraps. The image from Paper Artsy LPC009 was stamped onto another piece of mop up paper. I used a distress marker to scribble over the image to give it a blurred edge and the gaps around it were filled in with a little scrap of a stamp I picked up in a bargain bin in a craft shop some time ago. I decided to write my letters rather than use stamps but...on reflection..ha! ha!..perhaps I should have!

Hope you are all enjoying finding time to play now that all the festivities are over!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I love that LP stamp and I think your letters look fine to me! The colours on this journal page are beautiful. How lovely to have a visit to Italy and a wedding to look forward to. I hope that 2014 will be a great year. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog when it was so difficult using your phone. I really appreciate your comments always, Chris. Julie Ann xx

I think the handwritten lettering is all the more personal, and so right for this page which evolved from within... Lovely image on that delicately tinted mop-up paper. 2014 sounds as though it's already shaping up to be a vintage year for you!

That LP image is wonderful, she looks very ethereal and I love that you did your own lettering. Sounds like you are going to have a very busy year ahead. Happy New Year! Hugs, Anne x
