Hello, G45ers!

 Happy Friday!  Today, we have a divine Mixed Media Double Page Layout/ Home Decor Piece by our Italian Brand Ambassador, Nico Scrap.  For Nico's farewell post he has used our Botanicabella - Deluxe Collector’s Edition to create this inky and fun masterpiece.  Note each tattered and torn detail, and how he uses string to tie these two pages together, absolutely amazing!  Be sure to leave your heartfelt comments below to give Nico a warm and fond goodbye.  Before we dive in, we have our weekly contest winner to announce!

Mixed Media Double Page Layout

By Nico Scrap

“Summer is just around the corner, and i can’t stop thinking about hot summer days, the sound of the ocean and the sun on my eyes. I love to go to the sea and when i was a little boy, my mom and dad takes me to the beach to find shells and seahorses on the sand...those was the most special days during holidays ! I’ve loved to make those two layouts that can be used as home decor  thinking about my childhood!” ~Nico

“Goodbyes are not forever,

Goodbyes are not the end.

Another sad goodbye, but your quote is very pertinent! Love these layouts and your use of metal embellishments!
