Memories - Prima BAP April 2014

Hello Everyone

I have a vintage/heritage page to share with you today for the Prima BAP for April.

BAP april 2014 mani

The sketch was a great one. Here is my interpretation.

I used the School Memories Collection, which was the obvious choice for this page! ;-) It seems like an absolute lifetime ago that I was in Grade 1 and Standard 1! ;-)

I used stamping, watercolouring, gesso and generally a little bit of this and that, as always! ;-)'s a close-up of the journalling!

I did a lot of fussy cutting, as there were so many gorgeous little bits that one could use from these papers!

Ah well, quite a reminiscent page, especially since my own son is now in Grade 1. The circle of life is certainly turning!

Have a super evening and weekend!
