A new challenge is already up over at AAM with the prompt “ What this mark means to me”. Initially, I had a hard time thinking what my entry will be - - I don't have tats (too afraid of needles!) or scars (that have significant stories) on my body, thank God (and moisturizers!!!) no wrinkles on my face too!!! I thought of making a layout about having stretch marks, the scars of motherhood, but I don't have the artsy preggy photo for it (too bad I haven't discovered scrapbooking when I was still pregnant with my kids!).
So I looked again at the pictures that I already have and came up with this:
“I am the captain of my soul. I can go wherever I want, whenever I please!” I whispered to myself as I took a picture of my footprints on Patong Beach’s sandy shore.
Aaahh, Phuket. Who would have thought that I’d be here together with my college girlfriends? Life is indeed sweet.
I picked a stick, doodled on the sand and took another picture.
A wave crashed into the shore, and my footprints and my markings were all but washed away.
Supplies: Papers: Fancy Pants, Handmade paper: All About Scrapbooking, Alphabet chipboards: BasicGrey, American Crafts, Stickers: K & Company, Ticket:Jenni Bowlin Studio, Flower and swirl blings: Prima Marketing, Ink: Ranger, Clearsnap, Stamp: Ranger, Pen: Uni-ball, Border punch: Fiskars, Other: Gesso, date stamp.
I love the teared look of this handmade paper!
Note to self: gesso over pictures does not stick too much. Good thing I had a handy white Uni-ball Signo to touch up those missed stamped parts.
Fell in love with this Prima rose flower the first time I saw it!
Hope you likey and play along with us over at AAM! To view the takes of my co-DTs, click here.
P.S. My layout is a lift of uber-awesome Ronda’s “My Other Kids” layout. ;o) Made me bring out those swirl blings which I have kept for a very long time!!!
