SCRAPBOOKIT – April challenge

I really liked the clean lines of the sketch and decided to use some of the Kaisercraft Sail Away collection to complete my layout with the addition of die cut mini anchors, hessian,corrugated cardboard, string and recycled clothing tags. I fussy cut the large anchor from chipboard and embossed it with black and copper to give a “rusty” effect.

One of my favourite places to be is on the water, anchored up near an island. This usually means no-one else is around (apart from my husband). I really enjoy these times of peace and solitude but was very happy to have the company of this gull which took up residence on the outboard and appeared to pose for the camera!

Loved the challenge – thank you

123 Challenge April

It’s quite amazing that I actually felt extremely peaceful working with just white , the word peaceful and flowers. Thank you to the challenge designers at 123 challenge blog. Here is my take on the challenge. I made the organza flowers using circles of fabric held close to a flame. I am so happy with the way they turned out.

Scrapping Clearly – April moodboard

Wow! I loved the moodboard and immediately thought of this photo taken in a middle eastern restaurant of a group of friends off for a girls weekend to celebrate a special birthday. The colours reminded me of the decor and the doors inspired the shape of the pocket which lifts out to reveal heaps more photos of the weekend.
