No Paper!

By now i'm sure you all know the drill over at KIU.  This month's challenge is to create a layout WITHOUT patterned paper!   Use your imagination with things like journaling spots, transparencies, paint, mists, ribbon, tape, fabric, dressmakers paper, doilies, chippy products ..... the list is almost endless and i was quite surprised by how easy it was. 

Here is mine.... a very rare page 'cause it's got me on it!! LOL

{just me}


I've used a gorgeous Dusty Attic chippy vine and a Melissa Frances resin frame that i am totally in love with.  Definately need to buy some more of these!  A Hambly transparency, Kaisercraft blossom, paint, cardboard, Tim Holtz tissue tape, buttons, muslin (of course)  :)) and twine all feature here too.... not forgetting a little Chip Chop Shop doily from miss wally tucked in underneath too.  Last but not least of course is the Crafters' Workshop template that i have glimmermisted, then added a few specks of glimmermist and paint and stitching to finish it off.



Over at Stuck?! this month, Sara has used a sketch from ME!!  totally thrilled and would love for you to give it a go and let me know what you think..  :))


I'm in the second set of CT reveals for the 1st May sketch, so can't reveal mine until Thursday.... so i'll see you then.  :))

Sorry also for being a little absent this last week, but i kind of had a bit of a self imposed hiatus from the puter in order to focus on family needs, kiddy stuff and creative commitments.  Looking forward to the week ahead of me looks a bit horrifying too in terms of trips away and kids sport!  I'm sure i'll have lots to catch up on and i promise to try and visit soon!!

Thanks for visiting and i really appreciate the absolutely amazing comments that i am receiving from you lovely ladies.  I'd like to say a big hello also to the little wave of new followers... {waving}...  it's great to have you here.  :))

Bye for now.
