This is my favorite page in my Smashbook, so far. It's also the only one that I have completely embellished.
The background is punched pages from an old encyclopedia that I distressed with Tim Holtz ink. I used some scalloped circles, circles and pleated some long strips with torn edges.
Graphic 45 paper is a favorite of mine. I love the vintage images but have difficulty coming up with really good ideas to use them on my cards. The image on this page is too large for an A2 card so now it won't go to waste. The flower on the lower corner is from a package that I picked up at the Dollar Tree a couple of years ago.
When I got to this point, and took a photo, I decided to add some other items to the page.
There just seemed to be too many blank spots on the page so I tucked in some leaves and added a bow.
My smashbook is laying on my work table with it opened up to this page. The longer I looked at it with the leaves and the bow, the less I liked it. I ripped off the bow and flower as well as the leaves and now it looks like this:
Next time I'm just going to smash some embellishments, I need to lay them out and study them for a while before I glue them all down! LOL!
