I read somewhere that Vincent Van Gogh used to eat yellow paint because he thought that it would get the happiness inside of him. Although I adore the maestro, I hope my children will never need to do this. This layout I made for Jot Magazine’s July Mood Board Challenge: Thank you Kim for the inspiration! Special thanks to SOADYART for the lemons. Love, P.J.
I like painting, most of the times I find it difficult when I can’t paint what is in my mind, and having no time to practice what I envisaged. One night, I was messing with the paint and I put one colour on another and put them together onto a paper with a cardboard. At certain points the colours come together but not everywhere, what I would like is the acrylic paint not to absorb as much as it does at the moment and also texturised the paper. Furthermore, in order to create more layers, I have added embossing powder. At first sight, I thought that this is a new creation of mine, however, later on I have come to the conclusion that this isn’t a complete piece of work, so I decided to convert it in a scrapbook layout. I have chosen one of the lyrics of Silje Nergaard as the theme of the picture.
I was so suprised when I saw that Katie from Gossamerblue chose my layout Lin to lift. Here you can see Katies version, and if you click to page you can read the description of her layout.
