September Week 2 Challenge

This week our crop has taken a turn at setting the weekly challenge.

First up Donna chose this fab if rather challenging sketch

The other criteria were to use chipboard, sew on the layout (either real or faux) and to use washi tape or ribbon.  These days it would be more of a challenge for me not to use sewing on a layout as I love doing it and it seems to sneak on to almost every layout I do.

Here is my example.  I used Echo Park Note to Self papers which I love, I have now used most of my collection pack.  The photos were taken in Barter Books in Alnwick when I was there in July.  I absolutely love spending time there and go as often as I can when I am down in the north east.  Its an utter treasure trove of a place.  The title came from a review someone had done on the internet and I thought it very apt.

I used two of the buttons from the pack I ordered from Stash Panche run by Morag Cutts, you can check out her etsy shop or they are now available from Angel Crafts and Merly Impressions.  I thought these were the pefect finishing touch and will be ordering more soon.

Secret Swappers Collage Swap

Just realised I had forgotten to blog my pieces for Leanies Collage Swap.  There is 12 of us taking part and we were all given a colour and a theme and had to make 12 pieces in four differenti sizes.  I had scarlet and hearts.  Heres my pieces. I cant wait to get all the different ones back and see what they look like all put together.  Im sure it will make a fab piece of art for my craft room wall.
