those mood boards at Scrap Around the World Blog are seriously addictive - in a good way of course!!! This month's mood board is by Terhi Koskinen. I got inspired mostly from the clean look, the chevron stripes, the twine and the yellow pic! I am not sure now about the clean look on my layout but anyways ... .;)
Here's my entry:
Some close ups:
All of the papers (and stickers) except the polka dots one and the poem print-out on my layout are from one book what my lovely friend sent me by post as a surprise. Thanks a million, again!!! It's Flow Book for Paper Lovers. They do magazine too actually. Never heard about them before. The book has more than 300 pages of paper goodies!!! Here are some pics of it:
I did a layout using the photo I made of one of my childhood book (published in 1985). A lot of memories with this book. I didn't go through these pages for a long time. I came across one beautiful poem in there: Your Grandmother. I still miss her dearly, would like to hug her strongly and listen to her wise words.
But ... this is life ... nobody is living forever in this life. But memories stay and that's good and comforting. So that poem made me quite sentimental because it's tells about how your grandmother was your childhood sunshine, that she was generous and kind and dear; that she taught you and fondled your head and that she is in the grave now and for you stayed the memory of her, the glow from her eyes ... .
It matches up about me and my grandma. So this layout is also about her too.
Left my paintbrushes alone this time. Used StazOn Ink with the TCW Chevron Stencil and stamps & Lindys Stamp Gang Ink Spray for the small splashes. Stamps by Artemio and Stampendeous. Everything else is basically cutting 'n' gluing!
