Gardening and the other side of Shimelle's acrylic pages
(1) The other side of Shimelle's pages. I managed to work out the correct size of paper etc to cover the other side of the front cover and luckily I still had some scrap flowers so was able to place these over the ones of front cover and disguise glue dots. In the spirit of the class I decided to use up a pile of blue gems and metal stars as the centre of the flowers and to hide glue dot on butterfly. The heading "Rules of Life" was printed out from computer. I used the UK scrappers font of the week - Kilogram and then outlined the text in green pen to highlight more. I gave into my inner child and used a tea bag to turn the white printer paper into something that matched the papers better. The second page is very simple and the journalling reads "Rule 1, Life is not a dress rehearsal". It is my favourite picture of my dad. The photo is at that angle because it is then hidden when the front cover is over that page. I decided I had to tear the photoedges as wel and then ran a blue pen along the edge which ran a little and I like that effect. There are no other embellishments on the page as the paper is so bright and dad was a no frills kind of person. The other side of that page is a page of journalling about my dad and how much I miss him, but also how I treasure all my memories of him and will always Celebrate my Life!
