Yes I know the first photo stinks, but I was running out of camera charge and I am lazy! LOL
This is a very personal LO because this is the house I grew up in when we lived in Colorado. I don’t have very many photos of our house so I treasure these photos. I miss Colorado all the time even though we have lived here for 6 years. It was my home.
This is the 5th LO I have made using the Crush kit from Vintage Plum. I know I have been going on and on about this kit, but it is awesome! Everything used for this LO except the markers and red paint are from the kit.
As I have mentioned before, I like to use BOTH sides of double sided patterned paper. Well, this LO is actually on the back of the Little Guy LO I posted previously. This is Vintage Plum brand patterned paper so I had to use it all!
I wanted to say. . . this paper reminds me of Alice and Wonderland, which is one of my favorite books & movies of all time. They say Lewis Carroll, the author, had migraines and the movie was written about his crazy migraine induced dreams. I think he and I have a special connection because I related very strongly to this movie. It reminded me so much of my migraine induced dreams. Actually there is a migraine aura symptom that is called “Alice in Wonderland Syndrome”, but thankfully, it isn’t a symptom associated with my migraines.
I painted the edges of the music patterned paper with brown and red paint to match the LO. I stole this dry brush idea from a LO my buddy Kim (Kim from VP not Kim who made the sketch challenge, ah I am confusing myself LOL!!) made with paint around the edges.
This heart and wing shape was on a LUXE color me page included in the kit. I colored it with Stampin’ UP markers.
