OLW- Think

This is my piece for the latest One Little word challenge.
I have never painted on a layout this much before & I'm not totally happy with it. I didn't want the journal piece to look so much like a block. Guess I need to practise more. I knew my writing would not be visible on the cardstock so applied white acrylic to stick my homemade transparency title on & continued down the page so I could write on it.
I used part of my February Bellaboo kit. The sheet of paper used was a double sided Fancy pants design, Wildheart- Wild Iris. The red scalloped border along bottom & flower from the Titles & tags included in the kit from Fancypants Mulberry Road collection.
The photo turns were also included. I cut two tag shapes from the sheet of paper. One just normal tag shape (using a template I picked up made by Dovecraft. Very invaluable item) & added a brad from my stash. The other a scalloped punched out shape to add my monogram "h" & stamped the word happy. Silver button was a freebie in a paper kit I bought a few weeks ago.
Edited to add that the photo is 5x7 & courtesy of Captured by Kirsty (Kirsty Wiseman) taken in Feb at my team Scrap Shoppin' Girls, retreat.

This is wonderful Paula, I love the picture of you, gorgeous!
I don't think there's too much use of paint, totally love it!

I've been a bad blogger myself too, hardly visit any of my blog friends, because spending time at the computer is still kind of painfull.
