The Scrappiest #78

Happy Monday, time for new inspiration. Hop over to THE SCRAPPIEST for a new sketch. HERE. Here's my take on it.......... "Courage" I made this for myself......... instead of 3 photos, i put 2 in and replace that with the title. I am going through a decision making period. It impacts me, my time It impacts my family... Arrrggg........ seriously I am so fearful... Thus the title..... I need the courage to step out... to move forward but I am soooooo scared!!! A cluster of Prima flowers... see that white flower... I dry brush with some pink paint and dab my fave GOLD SHIMMERZ.... And this cluster of Seam Binding... pulll that pebble and you get a long long journal inside. I used a Prima packaging as a journal pad. More clusters.........
My thoughts in making in layout:
- I want a brown background... and since I love pink... i made it the accent colours
- I dry brush pink paints all over... can you spot it...
- I dab some Gold Shimmerz over the painted areas to give blingz and shine
- I painted the photos edges with pink paints... to give it some definition.
- I photo shop 1 photo to make it 'ghastly... or is it ghostly".... LOL... guess that's the face of fear!!!
- I like the symbol of the bird taking flight... I am wishing for courage to be in the place of taking flight with my dreams.
Thanks for staying on in this long post.
Have a great week ahead. You know I am thankful for you, my bloggy friends who drop by and leaving some love.

Hi Wendy, gorgeous layout and remember whatever decision you make, Jeremiah 31 says ".....whoever believes in Him, will receive good things, good things that you don't even know exist in life..".Pray about it, let go and let God...;)
