Say Cheese : OUAS


          Hey everyone here I go again with another mix-media layout for OUAS  and this  time I take the advantage  to make a very  embelished layout with lots of flowers from prima marketing  .. So when I started the layout I used a lot of paints and inks from different brands . First of all I used a shabby paper from my stash and then gesso it prior to create the opaque look . I also  distress the edges and make them more shabbier using KS craft paint mixed with Faber castel gesso . All the flowers are clustered in random spaces (I' Don't plan when I work.LOL!!) The craziest thing is that I don't have a photo to used in this layout so I suggested  To take and old photo on my prevous layout and scrap it again !!LOL!!

So here is it .. Okay , I know it is so far to add this in my journaling but At least this is very meaning ful . the journaling is on the back !

              "Say Cheese " everytime we say This word on the camera . I find myself in peace like in a yoga class( Never tried yoga at all ) but I know yoga stands for peace and harmony . Saying cheese Is a one way to peace My mind .Last year I learned a lot of my past and saying cheese is like " making a smile " and  I learned that smiling is one way to make calm  and happy  ..
