Absolutely amazed each week to see the versatility of the layouts uploaded, and they are all based on the very same palette! Just fantastic!

It was the photo of the veggies that set me going on the theme for my layout this week; nature. Immediately came to think more of the feeling, rather than a specific photo, of when we had our garden allotment and that is also what my journalling is about. The joy of seeing the seeds transform into seedlings and then into actual plants. Tucking into that very first young carrot pulled out straight from the soil. Mmmmm ...

The evidence I've used is first of all major distressing of all layers, the little wood branch with its bird nest that I made myself, the tiny metal plaque on the checkered pp, the clustering of similar things and combination of straight lines with organic shapes.

As to the testimony, it's all about my senses and going to the roots of this happy time symbolized by the radishes and berries.

Do you see the mini clogs down to the right in the cluster? I used to wear clogs when working on our allotment, and these remind me of all the endless completative hours of weeding and breaking up the soil.

I will have some more close-ups and list of products used on my blog a bit later this weekend but here's one for you if you fancy a peek.

This is enchanting and I feel drawn into your memory with this layout.  I love your eye for details and you are so good at layering and tucking in little surprises.  (I'm in love with the shoes)  I can stare forever at this and keep finding something intriguing and interesting!!  Beautiful!

Absolutley beautiful page.  The clustered elements are just gorgeous and love the little clogs and the gardening gloves tucked behind the journalling strips. So many lovely things to look at.
