So very very Tired

I’ve gone a bit photo happy with this post!! 
This is my take on layering.

I’ve noticed that layering seems to be ‘in’ in the scrapping world at the moment. I need to buy Ronda’s book to read up and get inspired. 

I don’t usually follow trends – I completely missed the whole Kraft obsession – but this one I want to try. 

It’s very sparkly!
I’ve used quite a few scraps that were just lying around. The note paper I used to clean up some inks I’d been playing with.

I stamped some dragonflies on the velum and dusted over them with mica powder.
The label with circles came off of a cardigan I bought.

The dragonfly is inked around the edges and triple dipped in embossing powder. I then splodged some ink on and mixed it as I went to create a purpley blend.

The wavy strips were off cuts from some signs a made a few years back (yes I keep things for that long!) I coloured one in with promarkers and inked with a pearly white ink pad and left the other white.

This photo is trying to show all the layers!

I used some little Tim Holtz paper clips, some button brads, some crafty ribbon buttons, and assorted paper flowers.I’d tried to heat emboss one just to see what would happen - not sure if I like it or not.

I’m not quite happy with the cluster of flowers; it doesn’t seem to be the right shape.  Any ideas? Maybe it’s just that I’m used to my pages being much simpler.
