Creative Week

Where as the week gone??? Sorry I have been slack at blogging this week but I have been busy creating! Here are a couple for you.

The awesome sketch provided by Charm at Bons this month had extra criteria to use items from the kitchen and handmade flowers along with printed journalling in a unusual font.

This is my take. I have used greaseproof paper which was soaked in tea. That took the greasiness out of it. I love this effect, will be using it again for sure. Other kitchen items on this layout are the yellow paper doily which I cut in half to use as a scallop and at the top near the date I have used a twisty. Also I have handmade the flowers out of felt. You will also spy a fabric doily from Leeann Pierce and buttons from Such Sweet Tierney.

Here are some closeups.

This LO was based on the ROTM for May at Bons. Here is the room.

I loved all the lines in this room (ie bookshelf etc etc), as well as the colours so I used some tape to create "lines"on my page.

Have a great weekend!!
And HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FOR ALL YOU MUMMIES OUT THERE!!! Hope you all get spoilt rotten!!
