We're moving into the dog days of summer here in New York, and I'm remembering the chill, rainy days of spring fondly. I reached into my photo archive for some pictures from my morning walks taken earlier in the spring.
While most of my recent layouts have been fairly clean and simple, I still have the urge, on occasion, to play with ink, stamps, stencils, and all kinds of other artsy-goodness. For this layout, I white embossed floral images and then inked with distress ink. I used the same colors with stencils to create a textured background.
