Anything But A Card

The challenge on the Monday challenge blog for Simon Says Stamp is "anything but a card."

I had surgery at the end of August and so was not feeling up to my normal card making but I have done lots of journal pages.  It was wonderful healing.

Here is the page.  My sister had given me a bag of fabric scraps so you can see there are some ofthose on this page also.  I made a nice little collage with them and stitched them together with my sewing machine.  I even did some journaling.

Here is a close up of the flower.  The flower was cut with my Silhouette.  I rolled fabric and made the center for the flower.  It is very dimensional.

Here you can see some of the fabric and scraps of other things.

I love using bright colors as you can tell from this journal page.

Thanks for stopping by.

I loooooooove this! Wow! All of the layers and colors and whimsy here couldn't help but make me smile. It is an explosion of happiness, yet there is also a lot of skill in what you put together. I love the patterns and colors you combined and how it really comes to life. I agree that journaling is a great way to heal and I'm so glad you shared such an inspired piece with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
