Project Life pages for 2014

Hey Crafty Peeps,
Soo technically this pages are 2013 but I'm finishing them in 2014 ( I think this is commonly referred to as Procraftination ) but at least I'm finally getting around to it. For anyone wondering "Procraftination" is currently listed in the Urban Dictionary so I must not be the only one? right. I posted my process video for this page on my YouTube channel "Starsinpalm" so go check that out if your more of a visual leaner like moi. For those of you who came to my blog via my Youtube " High Five"  ( Borat Voice) and welcome to the mad rambling of a craft addict LOL. Below you will find a portal to Narnia or maybe just some really fun and creative project life photo's! If you guys enjoy my work I'd love to hear some feedback in the comments and feel free to ask questions as well.

I really try not to get glare on my project life photo layouts but it can be quite challenging! I hope in the future to purchase a scanner or just find a better quality light source for pictures. I seriously love how this page turned out and I "swoon" every time I read this Helen Keller quote, its been a favorite of mine for quite some time so I was tickled pink when I saw it in my Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit. I whipped out my old type writer for this page and made a million typo's but decided to leave it because I figured life's messy and imperfect but beautiful non the less.
I really just loved this photo and didn't wanna go over board with the embellishments because its already so beautiful to begin with. I used a really fun mini stamp set from Kelly Purkey with the perfect saying to describe this photo and created the mini vellum banner with my Lawn Fawn Stitched die. I just love to incorporate mixed media into all my paper crafts so I used some India Ink to create a water color effect on both banners. On the top right corner I used an Amy Tangerine stitching template to create texture and fill in blank space on the top of the photo using some Gold thread from my studio calico kit card kit but you can find similar threads at your local craft store (This Detail is seen better in first Photo).
Something I really enjoying doing is creating embellishments ahead of time that will possibly coordinate with my page. One way of doing this is knowing what colors are gonna end up on your page, for me this is quite easy since I tend to use the colors Pink, Yellow and teal in some way in all my pages! I created that stitched circle heart vellum embellishment that's right above that Freckled Fawn arrow paper clip which I went ahead and rubbed with some hot pink acrylic paint since I didn't have the exact color I needed. The Geo tag  sticker you see below came from a studio calico sticker sheet I had from one of there recent collections. I hope you guys are enjoying these project life posts and are feeling inspired!
