Bank holiday weekend
Quirky Crafts challenge which starts today. The challenge is 'Going postal' and i made this vintage styl e card for the challenge. I just love this picture of the girl sat at a desk writing a letter so I mae my own background using some K&Co paper as a base and stamped some writing in Adirondack butterscotch ink and then stamped the postage mark in the top right hand corner in cranberry. The lace on the lefthand side was made by my Gran about 20 years ago! The layout of the card was adapted from this weeks Fridays sketchers, and the card also fits with the Crafty Creations 'make your own backgrounds' theme.
'Scrap it with a song' which I discovered yesterday. I may be too late for the challenge which is to make a scrapbook page based with words from a song. The song this week was 'Once upon and dream' and I used the line from the song 'that gleam in your eyes' for my inspiration. It was really the central photo of them all that captures that line of the song, but there is a similar gleam in Alex's eye in all of them. The title of the page was hand drawn to fit with the patterning of the paper and it is 'Such Fun! (puts a gleam in your eyes). The journalling reads 'Alex loving every minute of our various trips to the Ranmoor Playspace. Nov-Dec '09'. As such this page also fits with the Tuesday Taggers 'memories' theme. The page also fits with the 'Lots to do' theme of faces, since it focuses on Alex's face and happy smile! I would love to know what you all think of these projects. Enjoy Bank holiday Monday!
