I had cut a few more flowers from the fabric but, as I said my idea just didn't work so I decided to use the rest of the denim to back the lettering I cut out for the title.
if I hadn't lost some of them on the way up to my craft room from the computer.
I outlined all the flowers with Distress Ink and spent ages playing with placement before sticking them down and adding a ribbon border on the right hand side, and another ribbon pennant by the title for balance.
I wrote my journalling in a free hand way and then all that was left to do was add some Stickles and Liquid Pearls to the centre of the flowers. I learnt the hard way that it was better to draw a circle with a pencil first. I left the pencil marks there because I reckon they would be more trouble than anything to try and erase them and unless you are looking really close up (as in the next photo) they are virtually invisible
Although what I ended up with was not what was intended I like the late 60'/early 70's vibe that the large flowers bring to the layout
