I rarely scrapbook "just for myself" these days. I am doing Project Life, but I rarely do 12x12 pages "just for me." Usually they're samples for something. However, back in November 2012, just after we made the decision to get divorced, I found myself needing to express myself on a scrapbook page. I'm not sure why it had to be a scrapbook page, but it just had to be. I think I was inspired by the gorgeous chipboard feather, designed by the über talented Louise Nelson. She gifted me with a few of the feathers on her last visit to NYC. When I saw them staring at me, the idea for the layout immediately popped into my head.
I used a bunch of great stuff from my stash: some old Prima patterned paper and ribbon. I used my Layered Beads stencil with gesso and gold paint.
I'm glad that I can finally share this layout with you. I think it's beautiful and definitely captures a moment in time for me.
Thanks for stopping by!
