Patience- GD for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge



I was invited this month to be a guest designer at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. The first challenge on April 1st is to Scrap about my greatest current challenge or a challenge from my past.

One of my greatest challenges in life is to have
"Patience"
and this is the theme I chose for this challenge. I've had to learn in this lifetime how to have patience.
I always want things to happen right away when I want them. Over the years I've had to learn that with patience and determination your dreams do come true.


I used my curling paper technique again on this layout to frame this photo of me by the beach.


I used old butterfly chipboard pieces around the photo and up the page. I covered them with gesso and then sprayed and painted them in 2 different colored Shimmerz. Then I stamped them with my script stamp.



I've already said how I love butterflies so I thought it appropriate to include it in this layout about myself.


Materials
Papers: Prima Fairy Rhyme and Lyric collections
Flowers: Prima
Chipboard butterflies: unknown
Chipboard: Prima
Resin birds and mushroom: Prima
Textured paste, Cheese cloth
Shimmerz paints and sprays
Alpha: Webster's pages
Crafter's workshop mask
Script Stamp: Glitz Desing
Resin cameo and frame: The Trinket Track

I do hope you come and join us at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge

and if you missed my video tutorial the other day here it is again!!

Have a fantastic day!!
Keren
