Pretty Paper Hearts: #25 The Awakening

The PPH Journal challenges (you can play along too!) always make me stop and think.  I have had these pages in progress for several days now, I work a little and step away.  Finally I was ready to commit to gluing things in place.

embossing

First, I clear embossed at the bottoms of the pages, which did not work out like I had hoped, so I embossed with white powder and was much happier with it.

Pastel-Yellow Coleur Wash by 7gypsies helped give these pages the look I was after.  It comes in a bottle with an eye dropper top, great stuff!

My friend Michelle’s lace (two beautiful kinds) always seem the perfect touch of white when I need it.
