Summer Beauty

Time for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the twist for our anything goes challenge is Handmade Flowers.  

This lovely image is Summer Beauty from Dragon's Lair!  I fell in love with this image the moment I saw it!  If you are enjoying the wonderful images this month, I invite you to also visit Dragon's Lair on FaceBook to request the image of the month and play along there!  

My page is all about a little health dilemma I am facing currently.  Hopefully, by the time this posts, I will have some long awaited answers.  It has been a long journey, and I must say art journaling has been great "therapy" along the way!  There are so many reasons we all craft, and I'm so happy I have this outlet.  

The page is part of my Wildwood Book from CTMH (retired) so I didn't have to do much to get that wonderful textured look!  I added some stamping and the title die from CAS-ual Fridays.  I also have some stamping from retired stamps in my stash.  

I added some papers from stash, Storybook Swirl Flourish heat embossed with some white powder and re-inked, Art Philosophy Flower die cuts with added beads and Liquid Glass, lace, ribbons, and a gesso'd clock button.  

Be sure to visit
