Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you have imagined.
--- Henry David Thoreau ---
This quote is our prompt this week at Creative Prompts for You.
As soon as I got this assignment, I knew I would be making a page about my husband for my ever-evolving book called Reasons, which chronicles all the little--and not so little--reasons I love him so.
At the age of 55, Farzad decided to go for it and open his own business--a Maaco Franchise (hence the garish blue in the photos). I truly admire his courage to go confidently in the direction of his dreams. I wanted to use primarily neutral colors because of the blue in the picture. I used the Office Party kit by Noel Mignon, which seemed perfect for this picture of Farzad in his office.
I raised up the border at the top on pop dots. Isn't that wooden piece fun? And I used a stamp from one of my favorite stamp companies, Catslife Press. They made the "Reason No." stamps at my suggestion!
And another favorite stamp--the cool coffee stain stamp by Studio Calico from one of their kits last year. I used embossing powder on this.
This corner needed a little something extra, so I added three tiny brass brads to the label. I love how the Core'dinations cardstock looks when you sand it.
I added those strips with the circles at the last minute, when I decided my layout need a little more color.
You must go check out what the rest of the team did. Really cool stuff! I hope you'll play--it's a fun challenge, and there's even a chance at a prize from Paper Poppy kit company.
