Serenity

So I told you it was going to be inevitable...... I am going to turn into a scrapbooker......
The photo is of my beautiful daughter in law with little Lucia a few days after she was born.
I have to say, I really enjoy doing these arty LOs, messing about with gesso stamps and sprays, it's almost like doing a journal page. Here are a couple of close ups still

As using Gesso, stamps, inks and pretty papers are definitely my favourite products and using them together is a favourite technique, plus the subjects of my LO belong to my most favourite people in the world, I thought I would also enter this for Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the theme is "favourites" this week.

Dear Astrid, I just had to have a look at your page, in between kids and family dinners :-)
How very stunning a piece you have created, around your beautiful Lucia and her mother.I love your colours and mists, and the love between mother and child--and grandmother.
So beautiful.

So ein traumhaft schönes Layout, Astrid, das wird für Ihre Enkelin später einmal auch eine liebevolle Erinnerung an ihre Großmama sein. Ich liebe es, wie schön die einzelnen Dekorationselemente angeordnet und in Szene gesetzt wurden,die Gestaltung mit dem Gesso und die farbliche Betonung einzelner Segmente.
Ein wunderbares Wochenende mit all' Ihren Lieben, lassen Sie sich feiern!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
