This is the first layout I've done for my July 2012 trip to Seattle to meet and spend precious time with my soul sissy Lauri D. A couple of weeks ago she challenged me to this first layout and I think I met her criteria: space needle picture and journaling. Thank goodness she didnt tell me no flowers. :) I used many different techniques on this layout but one of the most fun was using a xmas gift from my wonderful hubby. Thanks to Scraphouse (aka Melissa) she introduced me to using M.S. clay. My hubby gave me the starter kit and it is great to use. It comes with 5 colors and 4 silicone molds. The flower, leaf, and berries are what I made for this layout. I used Stickles to cover the berries, veins in the flower, stem and leaf. I also used liquid pearls on the flower. The sketch is from Pagemaps. Thanks so much to my soul sissy for this challenge. Thanks for looking.
