Create from the heart

I hope you, my blog friends have a wonderful Christmas!

Today's layout was inspired by the following 

ScrapAfrica challenge #12 - film strip

and 



If I create from the heart


nearly everything works;


I used lots of gesso and old dictionary pages to create the background


and a lot of scrap from my scrap jars, where I keep all the stuff that was intended for some other projects but didn't turn out well, e.g. the floral frame, the arrows, the kraft frame and half of the doily from prima packaging



linking this layout to 

ScrapAfrica Challenge #12

I like the way you used the newspaper in the background. The color scheme is very cleverly chosen.
