This layout features pictures from Greg and Michelle's honeymoon in Istanbul on Day 3.
Greg titled the picture of the flowers on the banks of the Bosphorus, "Flowers by the sea". During the reign of Sultan Abudulhamid II, the Yildiz Park was walled and only for the palace dwellers. Now the beautiful garden complex is public with flowers, plants and trees gathered from every part of the world dating from the Ottoman era. That's Michelle looking at the panoramic view of the Bosphorus. May 2012
I printed my journaling directly onto the 12 X 12 transparency in the same shade of blue. (I practiced first on a plain sheet of 12 X 12 paper to get the journaling line up where I wanted it.) To get the journaling to show on the black patterned background paper, I added white acrylic paint to the back of the transparency. Because the edges of the layout were covered, I was able to staple the transparency to the background paper without seeing the staples. I love all the elements combined with Greg's lovely photos.
