Hi everyone! My Friday Night Fab Five will return to its usual schedule next week. Not feeling very fab this week so instead I'm going to share with you my latest circle journal layouts. This journal belongs to Jacque of Detailed 4u Collections and she picked a theme called, "Home Sweet Home".
At first I thought her journal was going to be about the home you live in or your state or something like that. Then I found out that she had created a house shaped journal and was requesting us to create a "room" in the "house". This was such a fun concept but I admit to having no clue what the heck to do...initially anyway. :)
Then I thought, well heck. Should I ever get the pleasure of meeting Jacque in person, I could see us just sitting around, drinking coffee (if she drinks it, lol) and dishing. So that thought turned into:
It's a dream of mine, to have a "vintage" kitchen (shock, right?) so I used that for my inspiration. For the left side, I Mod Podged vintage kitchen images to the page and accented the pictures with Stickles and various pieces from the following Gauche Alchemy's Mixed Media Color Kits: Scarlet Fever, Wedding Night, Pink Parts and Blue Streak.
Here's the right side:
Here I Mod Podged the background using tissue paper from Gauche Alchemy's Wholey Sheet Kit and then used white acrylic paint and a paper towel roll to add texture with additional circles. I added a doily from the Wedding Night Mixed Media Color Kit, (as well as pieces from the color kits mentioned above), the housewife image, believe it or not, was on the envelope of something I bought from Art Deco Dame (I'm telling you, I throw nothing out! LOL). I accented here and there with Stickles and used Thickers for the title, "Jacque & Maggi Dish". (Get it? Cause we're in the kitchen and we're talking so "dish" could mean eating or talking...see how clever I am? ;) lol.)
And there's another line in the circle journal complete. I can't believe there's only one journal left and our little group will be finished! Thanks for taking a peek, I hope Jacque likes her new room! :D
**Don't forget: You have until Midnight on Sunday to link up your layout/project/thingie do for Gauche Alchemy's Ad Inspiration Challenge! You could win the Wholey Sheets kit which is AWESOME. Go here to see more projects from the DT and more details!
