Enter at your own risk....

Welcome to my world of creating a page....
It started with this beautiful Crate Paper.
 I decided that some texture might be in order so
I broke out the modeling cream, gel medium and some Mist.
I threw in the gel medium because it has a shiney almost enamel texture.
 I smooshed them all together and was kind of
disappointed that the gold did not come out as gold.
 I persevered because I figured I could change it up later
if it didn't turn out the way I liked.
 I broke out my 6x6 stencil from The Crafters Workshop of 
bird cages hanging from a tree.
I love this stencil and I do use it quite a bit.
Its good for girly and heritage pages.
 I put the an abbreviated version of the stencil in the bottom left corner.
 Doesn't that dimension rock and the gel medium gives it that shiney look.
 I also decided I loved the color as it matched grey color on the page 
which was a total accident.
And that is mostly how I roll.
As you will see.
 Pulled out a bunch of papers.
And pink washi tape.
 Pulled out a bunch of Kaiser craft and Studio Calico
embellishments and patiently plowed through them all.
 Laid it out and decided......
 to chuck it all and start again - especially after I 
pulled this photo from the wayback box.
It seriously needed saving and I have scrapped this one before
many times.
I decided a simpler approach was needed.
 I took all the flowers away and fell in love with bikes only
the white was kind of stark - so I broke
out my watercolors.
 and attempted to make them similar to the other
elements from that pack.

It wasn't until I completed the page that I decided that
a border was required - the page just seemed too plain without it.
 Tossed some sequins and thread about.
 Stuck some birds in a cage.
Added some washi and butterflies and went with
the tag as the title.
I really really love how it came out and its way different
from anything I've done.

Was that painful or what. LOL!!
Thankfully it doesn't happen often - but enough for
me to not even try to video my approach.
It would make us both nuts.

On an ancestry note - that is my great grandmother and there
about 5 kids piled on the horse.
There are 4 sets of legs, 3 heads and one popped up in the back.
I have tried to blow it up and identify said kidlets.
I think its my uncle albert, aunt Toot, aunt Ruthie,
and aunt Sue.

I adore this photo.
I adore heritage pages.

Would you like to see the other page???
