It is funny how things happen. I was looking for some suitably coloured card for the lettering on my latest scrap-page when I spotted a decorated envelope I received in a swap which was just right.
I couldn't bear to cut it up but thought I must have some Dylusion waste in the scrap tin. I did but it needed some more colour, so out came the spray booth (pizza box!) and I gave it the once over.
There was quite a bit of ink left round the edges on the craft sheet so I made a tag too. But there was still more left over and then the cogs in my brain came together and I decided to stick my 12x12 card on the ink as well!
I dabbed some more, added some water, dried and distress inked the edges and added some lines and dots. I cut my photos with my new hexagon dies. I found a flower the right colour, also from a swap and some ric-rac from some happy mail too. A couple of gromlets and my favourite alphabet, Tim Holtz's Alphabetical.
I really enjoyed making the backing for this page.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
