For the first prompt this month, it is about our impossible future. List of what we once hoped our future to be but somehow knew it's impossible. As for me, when I started conceptualizing for my layout I realized I'm not really an impossible dreamer hehehe so I couldn't think of one impossible future which made me think that I know where I am right now and I'm pretty happy with it. So then I decided to focus on a "not so" impossible future but something that could or coult not actually happen.
So this is what I came up with. I decided to focus on what I once thought was an impossible future. It is about our trip to Europe that we started planning 2 week ago. It's not until next year so it's still a dream in the future but I never really thought that it could happen alerady and definitely not this soon. So we are both super psyched about it and couldn't stop talking about it. :)
I used MM's passport line and some MM vintage findings paper and the paper actually has an embossed vinyl like texture but the color is tone on tone so I highlighted some areas by applying white chalk inks on the paper to show that. The main photo is my first trip outside the country more than four years ago. I decided to use a huge exclamation point to place my photo. So the exclamation point is from a board I drew and cutout. I covered it with vintage paper and on top when you open the envelope, you can actually see some postage stamps from the paper that shows paris, loved that. :)
