the Dusty attic: may challenge

On the dusty attic blog a color challenge
Great colors, with that little bit of green as an extra.

Used a picture with some withered flowers, that I could not do away, I loved them so much.

Used 49&M paper and some leftovers from others brands. Flowers and the DA chipboard. Very hard to get in Holland!

Only 1 or 2 i shops that sell it, and nothing of the beautifull new stuff. But anyway ....

The picture is not great, the background didn't work with the clear gesso ... but ok ... I like it.

Have a nice weekend, Patricia

More than words: baby and pastels

On More than words this great CHALLENGE ....

I've made a layout with a picture of my sweet baby: Bo, a norwegian forest cat ... now 6 months.
She is sweet and a little terror, always trowing things on the ground.

I've used Prima paper and Teresa Collins, some orange pastel colors, to fit the color of her eyes.

The title is ' OH BABY'

Challenge 59: bling buttons and butterflies

On Challenge Yourself the best challenge: use bling, buttons and butterflies, my top favorites!!!
Used all kinds of scraps from the stocks and the table.

I've set myself a challenge: not to buy any new stuff for a year! Truly want to use everything I've got, simply because to much craft articles are very bad for the environment. In production, to much plastic etc. The paper is from Kaisercraft, the picture is from me and my siblings in 1965.
Have a good weekend.
