Hello there, Berry71Bleu friends! I love Marilyn's Summer Challenge because I am just back from my annual vacation to my hometown. I usually spend summer (Apr-May in India) with my parents, brother and extended family. It is a time when I am away from domestic and professional commitments...free to indulge in Reflection.
I take stock of my life, try to make sense of the grey areas, review my goals and
renew my affirmations.
Marivic's delish tag is a reminder of all the treats I indulged in this summer!
Yay to instant gratification...life is too short for regrets :)
I used Pearl-Ex Powdered pigments (Duo Violet-Brass & Duo Green-Violet) by our sponsor Jacquard on the background paper for awesome sheen.
I love the tags from The Queen's Heart collection by 7 Dots Studio (our DT sponsors for June). They are so apt for the theme of my page.
I smeared some Lumiere Dimensional paint in Rich Red on my fussy-cut paper to create texture. The papers are from Love Is In The Air collection of 7 Dots Studio.
