For my turn at Crash the Stash, I decided to make a layout. Some years ago I bought a postcard with an amazing quote, that I wanted to use on a layout, but I put it in my stash and didn´t think of it anymore. So now it was the perfect time to use it.
The quote on the postcard is from a German writer, Rahel Varnhagen, born in 1771. Among other things, she campaigned for the emancipation of women. The quote says: “What do you do? Nothing. I let life rain down on me.”
Of course, I used a stencil from Shawn Petite, this time the wonderful lace stencil. It creates such an elegant background texture! I used a crackle paste with it and it looks amazing! I used a lot of resin parts I have in my stash, flowers, and some glitter – we all need some “bling” at the moment, don´t we? I wanted to keep the background monochromatic so that the vocal point would stand out clearly.
Take care and stay healthy and thank you for visiting!
