This is Karen Grunberg. I have a confession to make: I am super scared of sprays. Each time I try to use them, more spray ends up on my hands than on the page. So, a while back, I decided to just give up.
But then I saw Ronda's amazing pages and I wanted to give it one more try. Here's what I ended up with:
I know for most people this isn't a lot of spraying but for me it was a huge leap. And while there's a lot I don't like about it, I love love love the pops of color and texture it adds to the page.
Here are a a few closeups:
I like using layers of differently textured fabrics, too. I love how the ribbons, canvas, and kraft all add their own personality to the page.
and a little clustering on the edge, of course. It's what I do:
And here's the journaling on the page:
Your class went to the fire station and you were too scared to go in the truck but you did get a little hat and it has become your very favorite thing. So much so that it's duct taped all over now because you will not take it off and it's falling apart. I love how such a simple toy can bring so much joy. A lesson we can all learn. Thank you, my son for making my life so much better.
And there we go. One of my first adventures into spraying on a layout. Thank you for inspiring me Ronda. And if there are any of you who are scared like I am, I hope you try one today too and link me up in the comments so I can see it!
