Hello everyone and so lovely to have you drop by here.
All right, so I know February is a short month, but still, time seems to be flying so very fast at the moment.....
So it's March, the month that Spring is meant to start here in the Northern Hemisphere, and I have to say, I for one can't wait. But first of all, it's time for a new challenge over at Our Creative Corner.
Linda, also known as The Funkie Junkie, has chosen the theme: Let's get scrappy.
Use our scraps and leftovers from previous projects, pieces of paper, scraps of ribbon, embellishments made and never used. I'm sure you get the picture. If you want the full details of the challenge and to see all the wonderful projects my team mates have created, just click HERE
Well, on to my project. Like most of us, I can't bare to throw anything away, so have tons of scraps flying about, - what fun to be forced to use them... Here is a picture of just 2 of the boxes of scraps that sit on my craft table:
I started by covering a piece of mounting board with scraps of paper in a pretty random fashion..
At this point I chose a vintage photo I wanted to use as my vocal image. Again I have a large collection that I have hoarded over the years. Before doing anything with it, I now adhered more strips of paper and other scraps to layer behind the photo.
The ticket was a little Prima wood one, the word hope was made from little Tim Holtz letter stickers. I added them to create a balance to some of the darker scraps that were added to the top and to add a suitable sentiment, - I am so hoping for some lovely warm weather and sunshine...
Hope I have given you a bit of inspiration as to one way you can use up some of your scraps. Do hop over to see much more inspiration and we hope you will play along with us this month!!
Thank you for visiting and have a good month!!
