* Vera Lane Studio: Grow a Happy Life


I have a Vera Lane Studio project to share. 
This time I have an oldie digi set called Grow a Happy Life - I love that thought!

Here is a 5 x 5 page I made. Originally it was going to be a card, but I have so many at the moment that I decided to add her to this little journal. The good thing is if I'm ever short of a card front I can cut this from the album and glue to a card base:

I used design paper for the background. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo and added strips of green washi tape for the ground. The digs were coloured with bright spring coloured Copics and a little Derwent Inktense, fussy cut and arranged on the page. I added a sun from the Sunshine collage sheet and toned the yellow colour down a little with a white pastel crayon. I decided to die cut the sentiment and attached it with a brad (not used one of those for years!) Next I inked the cut edge of the design paper in black and matted the scene onto pink card, then attached it to the kraft card in my journal. Some sequins were added with tiny flat back pearls in the centre and I coloured some mulberry flowers with distress oxides.

She's such a quirky girl - I love her!
