Ziplining with Louise!

Good morning! Louise here and I am very excited to share my first project on the Quick Quotes blog!

I have adventurous children so I thought this layout would give me a chance to share a bit about about myself and also highlight two wonderful new Quick Quotes collections: Navigator and Far and Away. These two collections use a similar color scheme so they are easy to mix and match. I am afraid of heights, so it was surprising that my family talked me into zip-lining. Many of the phrases on the Far and Away Quotes and Phrases sheet seemed appropriate to the situation, but I settled on this one.

I die-cut the title letters from generic white cardstock which had been rubbed with the Bermuda PowerPuff Chalking Ink. Although a bit messy, this technique gives the letters a rich color with a bit of texture.

Since I had a lot of photos from this adventure, I created this companion page which holds more pictures and my journaling. I added a few more sayings from the Far and Away Quotes and Phrases sheet.

All of the papers on both pages are from the Navigator paper pack. Papers, quotes, and embellishments are edged with PowderPuff Chalking Inks in Bermuda, Tropical Punch, and Navy.

Rather than put on my journaling on plain white cardstock, I used a light section from one of the patterned papers. I chose this particular section because the pattern is subtle enough that it doesn't distract from the journaling. This is the same paper that I used behind the title on the first page.
