This layout is for the October challenge at Funky Flair Studio ~ using GREY + LACE + any FUNKY FLAIR. I used a flair from the Creative Splats collection.
A touch of mixed media in this layout, for the Anything Goes challenge at That Craft Place. I created the grey background by applying a light layer of gesso over some older patterned papers. I really like the muted effect and the light grainy texture that gesso gives too.
The addition of a vintage book page was inspired by the challenge at LESSology. The theme is It's Reading Time. I love using book pages on my layouts - sometimes the little bit of text, or the aged paper appearance, is just what I'm looking for. I source my old books from op-shops or the Lifeline Bookfest ~ a wonderful way to upcycle!
