Farewell to my favorite park

When I was living in Michigan I had a favorite park. It was on the shores of Lake Superior. It was an amazing bike ride. Lots of hills and great sights. We had a few minutes to spare graduation weekend, so we went back to the park for a last visit.

 I was really concerned with telling my story on this page. I wanted to journal the significance this place holds to me. I journalled on the cardstock and then cut it up. I had was too many strips, so I had to break it up into two separate areas.
 The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. I used distress ink on both of the solid pieces to make them fit the pictures with a more nature color. Then I misted with Smooch to pull some of the turquoise from the water.
 The washi tape is Recollections from Michaels.
This tree turned out really cool. I picked up a pack of this metallic medium of sorts, but I have no clue what it is. It comes in a watercolor style container, but it the consistency of a wet eyeshadow. It looked so cool on the tree and the bottom of the page. I'd love to figure out what these are called, so I can find them. They have a really neat effect (except on your nail beds).


  1. Great layout Megan! I love the colors too and that medium IS really cool! Please share if you find out what it is!

  2. love all the distressing you did. Is the unknown medium Sparkling H20?

  3. I love your choice of color and the tree element is very cool!

  4. Great layout! Love the colors, splatters, and neat distressing!
