finding yourself



is a journey , not a destination . 

Trying out a simpler approach to scrapping here ,
Some masking with distress inks for a change . 
Sometimes misting is not the best technique on a layout
although I was tempted to splatter
 some drops of spray ink for sure ! ;)

Simple can be good as well, it doesn't always has to be complicated or messy ... it turned out pretty and fresh, I like it!
