The Queen and I

Bjay says, KAYA!

I use distressing sparingly, and is usually very comfortable with just the inking technique. Marj required at least two - I did three. Yee-haw!


Journaling:
Still the most beautiful woman in my life at 70. - 5 July 08. *To have a better grasp on why my mum has this Php49.95 tiara from SM on her head, please feel free to read the full story HERE.

Materials Used:
CS: Coredination (black base, red core); PPS: BG scarlet, Kaisercraft and an unknown brand; Hambly screenprints - Musical Notes, 7Gypsies playing card & sticker, Jenni Bowlin journaling spot, Prima flowers, AC Thickers, MM alpha stickers & Staedler pen.

Technique:
Paper tearing, inking and sanding the edges (the black CS has a default red core).

About ME:
Despite my mum's vitiligo, which she inherited from my grandma, I still think we look like each other. And I don't mind getting it myself. Because as the cliché goes, "beauty is within.". That will be my saving glory if and when it happens to me. Read more about me HERE.
