Life is Pretty Amazing

As I have said, I heart Echo Park paper and the This & That Graceful collection is no exception. This next layout is one of my favorites. It’s a cumulation of all the things I love: paper layering (count it baby– 7 layers), stamping, copic coloring and embellishments galore.  These pictures were taken when Brad and I were in Venice, Italy just last year around this time . The weather was just perfect and there was this green bough flowing over this brick wall and exactly what makes Venice so special, beauty in the most ordinary.

And now the reveal.

I especially enjoyed stamping and copic coloring the large hydrangea.I am no copic coloring expert so my shading is not perfect but practice makes perfect.
