Here's a layout I did inspired by the third lesson with Kelly Goree in the Stretch Your Kit class! I've never tried journaling like that but it was so easy and to the point, and a great space filler!
The long strips of paper are "crooked" ok I should say, "angled" as a result of the mistake I made... I didn't line up the stamp very well, so I had to compensate by angling my paper strips!
I didn't have to cut any of those long strips of paper - they were all leftovers from the previous 2 layouts! Even the matte behind the photo was from the chunk of paper I cut out of the back of the first layout! Awesome tip!
Finally, I didn't do anything to those doily flowers though I would like to take credit for painting or spraying them or something, I had the same ones in black already. Thanks for looking!
