Bloom . . . By Debbie

Hi everyone,  Debbie  here with my very first DT project for Berry71Bleu.

I enjoyed working with a beautiful Berry71Bleu  tag  Marivic sent me.  It coordinates perfectly with the papers in the Frosted Life Collection by 13 Arts, our sponsor this month.

I used some gesso, masking, stitching and rub ons on the background paper from the Frosted Life collection.

I've surrounded my picture and tag with flowers,  as I love to garden and enjoy the beauty in flowers.  I printed out a couple of pictures of flowers from my garden, cut them out and added them to my layout.  Here you can see where I've added a purple flower.
I hope I have inspired you to join in on our January challenge.
There are still a few days left to join in.
Here is the challenge for this month:

 This challenge is no-holds-barred...talk about your new year's resolution, your dreams, your childhood, your best and worst moments, what makes you laugh, cry, mad...what makes you feel beautiful...your best physical feature, what you wish you can change about yourself...your pet peeves, your frustrations, your favorite food, color...maybe a secret? whatever you want to talk about as long as it's all about you.Since we are talking about you...(the queen!).
