Documented Life – Week 48

This week’s Documented Life challenge was to depict gratitude in a creative way. I had such much fun creating this layout, the challenge just may be my favorite one so far! It was a wonderful opportunity to sit and think about all the many things that I have to be grateful for.

For my base I used torn pieces of sheet music and added a layer red and orange acrylic over it. For the flowers, I hand cut the petals out of gelli prints that I had previously pulled and stashed away for future use.

Thanks for looking!

    Your page is so vibrant and happy. I love that aqua colour against the orangey-red. I hope I can get to be even a fraction as good as you are at creating backgrounds and combining colours.

    Great page Belen! The aqua-light orange just stands out from the red- dark orange background. Love all the small details you put into tha spread and that cutie paw stamp too.
