Laugh with pleasure

Another layout with photo from last year's winter mini-break, but a more generic one this time...

I put a LOT of "stuff" on this layout... making some more inroads into my older stash, but trying some new things too.

Here are some of the details:

Painted metal adornments with gesso and Twinkling H2O paints, handmade paper roses and diecut vine ~

Title (I stencilled on top of the photo and papers using modelling paste... that was actually quite a leap of faith because there was huge potential to mess it up!!  And then I got even braver and added ink outline AND Twinkling H2O colour on top):

I am feeling quite stoked at how this came together, and I am submitting it at:
