OLW -living

Ooooo.... I love this word over at OLW.... "Living"... it is so full of vibrancy, life and expectation. So, I altered this CD case where my Webster Pages journaling paper came in. This is like a love letter to myself. This paper has a stamp image at the top right corner. Very cool!. And I like the colours of teal and raspberry combo for this project. "WORTH LIVING" Techniques: - For the cover, I stamp the case with Staz-on White.. to give it a misty look. - Then I add a Fancy Pants packaging tape across. - I painted a frame with teal... oooo... loving this colour. Then I use my fingers to dab on Gluepad... randomly dab on the frame. Then I sprinkle... just a bit of WHITE UTEE..heat emboss.... . this gives the speckles look on the teal frame. You get the White 'dots'. - Layer with a Prima flower, a piece of raspberry felt.... - then I paste a small piece of FP packaging tape... then i use my heat gun... it crinkles and curls due to the heat. Love love the effect. - found a vintage butterfly to add on top. Do you like this? Journaling inside: I love this recent photo of myself..... very healthy looking.... full of life... hee..hee... of course, after losing some weight due to my Jan illness. Journaling reads: I am glad to be where I am today. When I was young, I often wondered why I am here. What am I living for? What's my purpose in life? When I found God, I finally understood the meaning of life and found my purpose for living. I am living out my calling acoording to his plans. I am enjoying life, I am truly living. I dont need to struggle whether I am worth living.... I found the source of life. I am soaking in the joy, the fun, the ups and downs of living. As i journey along, I found fulfillment, satisfaction. I'm living the life I 've imagined & better. I am worth living. I am awake, conscious each day of the tremendous energy life gives. I've decided to give my best shot in living. One life, LIVE it!
