I L O V E after Christmas, Christmas decor sales, don't you?
There's just something about seeing 50%, 70 and 80% off, right?
Ahh, gold glitter everywhere!
Ok, so I go out to take pic's of my journal pages and I go to the barn deck, kneel down to get the shot and then I'm on my back, just kind of kneeled over. While I was there I thought I'd get a pic of the pretty blue sky above me, HA!
Is that buds I see on the plum tree limbs?
I've been wanting to do a number page. I decided to search for a number quote to get me started. I found out number quotes are not that easy to find. After I found this one and used it, I should of searched song lyrics, I can think of a few lyrics with numbers.
I started by tearing some Tim Holtz 8x8 collage paper in pieces and gluing it to the pages and inserts.
I cut some flowers with the Tim Holtz tattered florals die out of the burlap ribbon I got on sale in my after Christmas decor stash. The stems are pieces of vintage cloth measuring tape and I cut the leaves from a vintage Bingo card.
I started pulling out numbers, white backed stickers from Lowes, Tim grunge board numbers, the Tim Numeric stamp set (one of my fave sets) stamped with Archival jet black, red geranium, coffee and cornflower blue ink, metal number 7 covered with tissue tape and numbers remnant rubs.
I stamped and embossed the the frame behind the 7 with gold embossing powder and VersaMark ink. I backed that with a white and a gold doilie.
I made shadows around some of the numbers with Faber-Castell PITT big brush pens in dark sephia 175 and black 199.
Here's the quote:
Never worry about numbers
Help one person at a time
and always start with
the person nearest you.
