Good times

I've been using a few flairs lately ~ who knew they could become an addiction?? 

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!
