Sparkle and Shine - journal book page

Hello friends,

Hope you've all had a great start to this week. 25 gorgeous entries this month, there is time for you to add another if you want. You can read more about the Sparkle and Shine challenge here.

Here is my contribution to your daily dose of art inspiration - another special memory recorded in an altered book journal. Memory keeping isn't always about photographs (at least for me), its about documenting those little things that bring me joy everyday. My page today is about something I learned from my little boy!

The background was prepared by using gesso and a tiny bit of paint. Paper layering on both pages have been made using the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Open Book paper and ephemera. There are so many pretty patterns and text, I'm in love with this range and just can't seem to stop creating with it. Finally, to finish some studio calico sequins have been added between the layers. Easy isn't it.

Wont you join us this month with a sparkling creation of your own?
