Golden Yellow Journaling

An art journal page inspired by sunshiney yellows. 

Though normally I don't do much with yellow, this was fun because the yellow paints and papers & metallic gold inspired the most wonderful flashbacks of a great family vacation when the kids were little...aaaah. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision, after a friendly invite, to spend a week living on the beach. We packed up the car and went. Great decision. Life highlight.


 What is your favorite vacation memory?

Hi Kath,
I just love your yellow journalling page.
Isn't it great that once the writing is in place the whole page comes to life, don't you think?
Lovely memories on that page.
Your pins are really pretty too.

Your journalling page is fantastic, but as always, journalling means more for the people who make them. So I will be focusing on something else if that's ok... Those cupcakes!!! And the butterflies, a perfect choice.
