Sisters are different Flowers from the Same Garden

My sister and I are very close, but oh so very different. So when I came across this quote, I just had to make a journal page using it.

My background is acrylic paint blended together with a baby wipe. I added in some orange paint with a Tim Holtz stencil and stamp some white paint in with a paper towel roll for some added interest.

I then paint some deli paper with Distress Paint. I spritz the deli paper with water so the paint would blend together nicely. I then doodled in my flowers.

I cut out the flowers and adhered them to my page. I then drew in my stems and leaves. I added in pictures of my sister and I growing up together.

Lastly I added in the quote with a black marker and a white pen.

I am submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Blog In the Family Challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
