Treasured Hunt Challenge #4

This was the most fun I have ever had doing a layout. I took my time and built this throughout the week. I really enjoyed the process. I wanted to try some new techniques and create a layout I could frame to remind me of the Golden Rule.The pocket is made from a sheet of chipboard – I ripped it in half, wet it completely and shaped it the let it dry. After I shaped it, I sprayed it with a variety of Maya Mists and Tattered Angels mists to get the color I was looking for.Journaling:
Pinky Swear
I am not willing to surrender my principles for the easy way out. My firm line of right and wrong is not blurry. Sometimes I do not understand how anyone can give up the only thing they ever truly own – their integrity.
When I give my word – it is golden. I would rather face the consequences of my actions in this life than sacrifice my place above. The golden rule is very simple – do unto others are you would have them do unto you.The Challenge:
Layout must include:
- one picture only
- at least 3 leaves (can be an embellishment, stamped, handmade, cut from paper, real leaves etc)
- stitching - machine or hand stitching (no stamps, rubons or stickers)
- some recycled piece of packaging - plastic, hang tag, price tag, cardboard, etc. (describe in your description if it's not evident what you used)
- journaling of at least 50 words including "I am not willing to..."
- original designs only - no sketches, please

oh WoW!
mixed media art to the core!
if you don't make the next cut i am going to have to personally go hurt somebody...
please keep us in the know as to how you progress.
the journaling alone is more that wonderful. so very well spoken/written.
and the art work just makes you want to sit and observe it as there is something new to discover every time you look at it.
great job, lisa!
