A toast to Dawn

I have been wanting to do a layout of my sister Dawn for some time now and jumped at the opportunity when I saw this lovely photo of her taken at a restaurant in Cape town. 

I love the blouse she is wearing , and wanted to base the  colour and design  of my page  around it. I was thrilled , therefore to see that  the mood board at Scrap Africa  was so in tune with my idea, right down to a gorgeous floral blouse!
I loved doing this page and even better I loved the way it turned out with no "buts" at all. Must be the sisterly love adding to my creativity!

I have used lots of different techniques , some new to me, and had a whole lot of fun with gesso, heat embossing and my new gelatos.

Hope you like it Sis , thanks for all the goodies you are always sending me to keep my crafty room well stocked. xxx
