How old would you be?

What an incredible week it's been over at the PaperArtsy blog - the projects have been fabulous! I haven't had much chance to 'play' this week but I had to have a go at Sara Naumann's technique (more here) as I think it's going to be invaluable! 

I want to make a cover for one of my journals but just can't quite find the right photo yet... Rather than miss playing along I have made a tag and will make the journal front once I finally make a decision! If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them!
The photo I used is from my birthday (a better look at it is here) as I had a spare on my desk! The only change I made from Sara's technique is I added paint to the tissue paper after it was dry and removed the excess with a baby wipe. I looked the effect!
The paint colours I used were London Bus, Beach Hut, Limelight and Snowflake - the mask is one I picked up at PaperArtsy's stand at Ally Pally and is a firm favourite already! 
Thank you for the inspiration Sara and the rest of the DT!

I love it!! I think maybe I'd be .... 30? Long enough ago, not too young (don't want to be really young!) and not as old as I am!!
Have a great day.

Good grief Gabrielle, there's no holding you back at the moment, so many gorgeous projects recently you must be back on form! I'm loving your colour work and you always seem to find the most fabulous quotes and sayings to match the imagery you've chosen fab, fab, fab! Chris xxx

27. If anyone asks, and they shouldn't really should they?, then I always think 27 and then have to work it out. Love the colours and the sentiment.
