SAY Cheese!

Week two of the Documented life project and I couldn't wait to put down my ideas.

It is a page about yourself and I wanted to have a little think about how I wanted to present myself. as I get older I seem to worry less about the way that the world perceives me and realise that people are just busy worrying about how they present themselves.

I spent ages choosing suitable papers that I really like and would add to the mood.
I chose Kaisercraft, Secret Bird Society collection, there being lovely colours and a few extra tags etc. I die cut the flowers ages ago.

I chose some sentiment stamps that I really like and a comical stamp of ladies growing old disgracefully. The photo that I put in is of me pulling a daft face at a summer barbecue last year.
I used vintage photo distress ink around the papers and a selection of wools on the tags.
Ink blots to put it all into perspective as I am a real Mrs Messy!
Thanks for looking.
