This is a layout of my grandfather when he was very young. No one seems to know who the girl is with him. Maybe my mom or one of my aunts that I hear lurk on my blog can help me out...

For this layout, I clear-embossed the Stamped in Ink corner swirls all over the solid Kaleidoscope turquoise paper and then brushed brown paint over it to give the relief of the swirls. I have never tried this technique before and thought it came out pretty cool. I really should play with paints more often. The rest is just a mish-mash of products: a couple of Carolee's Creations tags, a Kaleidoscope frame cut in half, a wild asparagus tape, a wood Li'l Davis word, and of course, lots of Stamped in Ink stamps.

I am not feeling so hot today so this is just going to be short and sweet. Look for my first day of my art journal tomorrow and a new creative prompt...

Well I sure hope you feel better soon Christi. This layout is another work of art. The colors are just amazing and perfect for the old photo.
