13arts challenge layout

Hello everyone,

today I have for you a layout which I have created for the current challenge

at 13arts.

They have a beautiful mood board with rich colors.

Here is the mood board for you:

Here is the link to 13arts : 13arts

A few months ago I started with a new scrapbook layout series:

"women around the world.This challenge mood board got me back to

create a new layout. Thank you Anguree for your inspiration and for the mood board.

At the beginning of my new series, I still glued young women faces on my layouts,

but I quickly came to the conclusion that it looks good but not good enough for me.

I wanted to tell stories  and stories are not on model faces but only on older ladies.

There is nothing more beautiful than a happy old face. I`ve always thought that getting older has

something positive. Since I crossed the 50 years mark, I feel relax and positive too!!

Now my life is filled with happiness, love and respect for each other. I also know that many people

do not have this luck...I am very grateful for everything I have...

"women around the world"

She is so beautiful, right??

I used for this page:

13arts clear gesso, Ayeeda mist in chalk woodbine, chalk dark brown , pearl old gold

Ayeeda ink gold and black pastel mist.


Archival Ink, Black gesso, carabelle studio stamp, AALL&CREATE stamp,

Hobbyshop Sandra stencil Nr. 174.

My dear blog reader, thank you so much for your visit today.

Until next time.
