So I found these old photos

I found these old photos of me - circa 1970. Figured I would use them for a layout and a couple of challenges.

The September challenge for Limor's Mixed Media art group  was to try something new using one of two sketches and add journaling.

Here is the sketch from Once Upon A sketch

Here is my layout






For my new technique, I wanted to use my new Prima mist on Pink Paislee resist paper. I learned that the mist beads up so you cannot just apply it like you would on plain cardstock. I had not thought of this so used a wipe to spread the color around.

I was wracking my brain to remember facts about myself at this age.

This is also for Frosted Designs number challenge. The paper has numbers written on it and I included a number in the title and journaling.

I am also using this for Try It on Tuesdays make your own flowers challenge. The one pink flower is made from lace and a pennant ribbon and the other pink one is made from punches. The white one is not hand made.
