Ice cream

I know I haven't blogged for a bit, but life has really been under my feet recently. I'm still wading through a bunch of issues, but I just had to do some crafting today 'cos I thought I was gonna lose it otherwise. So I made a LO of DGD2 comforting herself with ice cream from the tub.

This LO veers away from my usual style in that it is fairly minimalist with lots of white space. I'm working on my fear of white space snd needing to fill up every inch of my LOs.
The background pp is from the new 7 dots studio dreamer collection, and so are the little word stickers. I used a Martha Stuart deep edge punch for the border. The flourish is a very old one from my stash which I first painted and then glimmer misted. I then inserted some jewelled brads randomly on the LO around the flourish. The flowers are Prima vintage and the little studs on the border and the photo mattes are 7 gypsies. I used some thickers which I scratched with a tonic scratcher thingy and then applied green ink to them. It can't be seen very well on the picture, but there is some journalling on the top edge and down the right hand side of the page. Thanks for stopping by my blog
