A Bit of a Lift!!

Over at the Boxx this month, it was my turn to pick out a member's layout.... and willfully lift it!!  hehe

I picked out this layout by the lovely Kim Ewins:

I turned it on its side and used the gorgeous TCP Studios 'soul food collection' paper by Melody Ross again... only for a change, I actually used the 'a' side.  :))   Absolutely LOVE it!  The flocked pattern replicated Kim's circle misting really nicely.  I'm a bit fond of those Prima birds at the moment too!

I've scrapped this pic of Maddi and her friends at a swimming carnival before, but i just love it.  They all LOVE their sports and they LOVE to compete.  They really are cut from the same cloth.  :)

{birds of a feather}

NB:  ever since dh noted that the white paint splats looked like bird poo, all i see when i look at this lo now is bird poo!!  thanks hon... lol

Now onto the July 1st sketch over at Stuck?!

The lovely Cystal Goulding provided the sketch for this month and i really enjoyed interpreting this one.  First of all, I flipped it once anticlockwise.  I also couldn't wait to play with these new Prima iron ons.  I ironed them on to calico so that i could fiddle around with placement and layering.  The frayed calico also gives them a bit of textural interest and definition too.  So easy to use and i just love 'em .. :)

{i believe you can}

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope this week is treating you well.  For fellow Queenslanders, this is our last week of holidays and I have to say that I haven't seen too much sleeping in happening in this neck of the woods... :)   Maybe tomorrow...

Cheers for now.

Oh my goodness, wow, words cannot explain both of your layouts Jules, gee I wish I could get in that head of yours for just a short time, wow, where do you come up with these stunning ideas. Wow the bird is awesome, the stitching and the fussy cutting of the flocked paper, wowsers, you inspire me so much, I love how you put down some paint and then got the images on top and the denim circles......wow.
