Circle journal - 4 things that would be on my "welcome" sign


Here is my next circle journal layout.  This one is for Elaine, who wants to know what 4 things would be on our "welcome" sign at our home.  It was a tough one for me!  I included mostly pictures of our furbaby Fluffy, because she is definitely a big part of our home and lives. :)

Here are the two pages separately for a better look:

As you can see, I did a lot of stamping and sponging with ink.  I rolled the Very Vintage jumbo wheel across the left side of the layout, and colored in the images with a Blender Pen and ink pads.  Watercoloring works beautifully on the Kraft cardstock!  I love also how the image is not as bold on the Kraft, creating an even more vintage-y look.

I do have the best recipe for blueberry muffins.. yum!  :)
