17- Belonging and Strong

Hello! I hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend. Another FAB challenge, yes?

My evidence includes:
1. Use circles
2. Use stars
3. Use birds
4. Use branches/leaves - in one of my patterned paper
5. Use patchwork - stitching several patterned paper to create a patchwork design
6. Use pen-work or outlining. I outlined my title.
7. Use space = white space.

For my journaling, I used the method I shared in the CSI Lab, titled 'Finding your inner poet'. Looking for some inspiration, check it out.

For close-ups, and more details, please visit my blog.


As always, thank you for taking time to stop by. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Have a super fantastic week!

LOOOOOVE! (I tried your inner poet thing. It's addictive. Did you include a warning? If you did I guess I ignored it. That wouldn't be surprising....) :)

Awwwl...such a sweet pic of your pooch. Love that he's only half in the frame--such a cool angle! Love the patchwork and the stithed on letters and the birdcage hanging from the baker's twine!

A perfect Tina page! love how the bird cage hangs in that string, the circular shapes and the squares of different papers that go across the page. COOL as always!!

Tina, this rocks....  I'm in love with the stitching and the birdcage.. (I'm a sucker for birds & birdcages) It appears to be floating on the page..how cool.   Your little puppy is adorable and love the photo effects you've used.

Gorgeous page, Tina. I love the string on the birdcage, the patchwork and stitching. You really have an eye for detail!
