I had actually made this page previously but have been wanting to remake it for some time now since my scrapbooking style has evolved so much during this past year or so. You can see my original page here. I was amazed myself when I saw how different my style is today than it was about 2 years ago. When I first started scrapbooking I kept it safe & simple. Now, I'm definitely more diverse & take more risks. I also tend to make my own backgrounds with either stamps or with the use of mixed media.
The theme of this page hasn't changed at all these past few years though--I'm still very much a pen thief and am notorious for swiping them when you least expect it! :-) I honestly don't mean to do it though--it's just a very bad habit of mine. My journaling explains it all which is stored in the little pocket on a tag that is pulled out with the use of the tassel. Journaling reads:
Pens...I buy them, I collect them & yes, I unintentionally steal them. There isn't one cube in my office that I haven't hit. They are left carelessly thrown on top of desks & on shelves. When I visit, I tend to pick these pens up & play with them in my hands while I talk shop. When I walk out of the cube--the pen is still in my hand. It eventually lands into one of the 3 mugs I have on my desk that I use to hold all of my pens. Sometimes, the pen makes it's way back to it's original owner--but most of the time it stays with me & added to my always-growing collection both in the office & at home.
Keep your pens locked up my friends, I come when unexpected & I'm a quiet thief unknown to most including myself. It's a habit I cannot break nor control. I strike by day or night, early or late...
Catch me, if you can...
Evidence is as follows: gold elements, texture & tassels
Testimony: I used the 'Journal of Secrets' since this is a secret that I'm willing to share
Dusty Attic. I added a couple of elements to these guys as well in order to give them a bit of texture. I started off by painting them with gesso--once dry I randomly spread Peachy Keen Shimmerz paint & Sunkissed Peach glimmer mist all along my chippies with a thin paint brush. I then hit my chippies with my heat gun. Finally, I added Glossy Accents by Ranger to my chippies to give them that epoxy look.
I edited my photo with Photoshop. I felt that turning my photo into a 'pencil sketch' went along with the theme of this page as well.
Large rhinestone button is by Zeus & Zoe.
Shimmerz paint. Phew...all that for one background!

Thanks to all of you who stop by for a visit. Have a great weekend everybody!
