sometimes I forget . . .

Sometimes I forget how much I enjoy something.  Does that ever happen  to you?
 

I kind of forgot how much I love layers.  Paint, ink, stamps, papers . . . 
***sigh***.  (That was a sigh of collage making happiness, by the way.)
And don't forget the crayons!!!

Watercolor on white paper, German Scrap leaf, Wallpaper Stamp (brand new
2014 release, how fun is that?) from Something Tattered (Boho Paisley),
ephemera, collage background paper and image from Altered Pages.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!  :)
