A fun memory

I love creating on kraft paper and I love journaling so the ongoing challenge at Kraft it up! is perfect for me! The challenge is to show your journaling in a creative way. Fun! This is what I came up with:
I chose a picture that captures a fun story that I want us all to remember. It needed a long journaling and I chose to write it on three chipboard hearts. As the chipboards had exactly the same shade as the craft paper I loved the effect of keeping them undecorated.
The title is written on some tags from Basic Grey and says: “A fun memory”.
The background is decorated with some yellow acrylic paint and black ink on a template. The embellishments are a mix of bright colors and black & white.

The transparency is from Glitz. It has a wonderful bright color and to be able to keep that color on a kraft paper I chose to put some white paper behind it.

Thanks for looking!!! I love your comments!!! :)
