Collect Moments not Things

I really had no idea where I was going with this page. I wanted to make a page that fit into 2 challenges and have this as my week in review spread as well. The 2 challenges are: Tag-it over at Simon Says Stamp and using a particular color palette over at Effy Wild's site.

So this is how the page started. I used Distress Paints in Broken China and Antique Linen to start with. I then added in Rusty Hinge and Salty ocean through some stencils. Next i glued in my tags.

I then added some Fiber paste over my tags and the center of the spread. After the paste was dry i went over it with some Rusty Hinge Distress Paint.

I felt like my background still needed something so I decided to use a Balzer Design's Diamond stencil and some Salty Ocean Distress Ink.

Last step was to add my journaling and a few pictures from my week. You really can't see the saying very well in the picture, but in real life it does pop off the page more.

As always thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the 2 challenges for more inspiration.
