The GPP Crusade for December is to journal a scent for the season so having put all the effort into making the backgrounds over the weekend I then went on to use them for this challenge. In the first one I adhered dried rose petals from my garden in the summer. I am not sure if these will last in this journal...I think they may perish...I don't know. Maybe someone can advise? But the pages really smell nice at the moment! BTW the background was stamped over with gesso before I added the petals.
And my favourite smell of the season...xmas tree! We always have a real xmas tree and I get so excited when it goes up. The scent just permeates the whole room for several days. I just wish there was a way of capturing that scent for longer but it generally fades. I have to keep my son away from the pine needles though as he is allergic to them! That said, he is 21 now so that shouldn't be too difficult! The little envelope is packed full of pine needles.
And yes Michelle...you told me about your Graham...what month is his birthday in? Just wondering if they have more in common.
And something else exciting...g is having a little giveaway and I have won an antique xmas deccie! I am so excited about that...I love antique stuff! Will post a pic when it arrives. Thanks g!
