The Apartment

Here is one of my new pages that I did this week. This came together really quickly too. It is a page about a horrible apartment that we lived in when we were first married. It was so therapuetic to get all those angry feeling out in the journaling. I wanted the page to be very messy and distressed to reflect the state of the apartment. I used Basic Grey's Granola collection for the pp. I cut the leafy things and the ripped circles from pp in that line. Ialso used a lot of Tim Holtz's distress inks to to ink the papers. The journaling was on white cardstock and I used Vintage Photo ink to make it look old and worn. I also inked and tore the backgound papers and did some lacing.

This was a really fun layout to do and I am please with the result. I think it conveys my feeling about the apartment VERY clearly.
