I decided to work my way out of it by creating ... creating a layout.
"i see myself in you"
Although this is a very simple layout I did play with several mixed media/layering techniques.
1. I wanted color so I used Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peacock. while the pain was wet I sprinkled Tim's Distress Glitter Vintage Photo on a chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios (FAV).

Top Right Hand Corner: The paper already had the white cursive writing on it so I added a stamp image from Wendy Vecchi's Stampers Anonymous line with Tim's Fire Brick red ink. Then I added a touch of Ranger's Picket Fence paint dabber. On top of that I added white rub-ons from Making Memories from 1,000,000 years ago (LOL). I placed my Blue Fern Studio piece on top leaving enough room for more Making Memories black rub-ons.

So you see it is simple but I remembered my dad in a special way and it was a good journey.
Waving out a wish for you to ...
Have a Crafty Day!
