You may recall a canvas I made recently with the same photo. I gave that to my best friend Chrissie for Easter so I decided to repeat it again on a layout for me.

This time I used My Minds Eye Bella papers from last months Bubbly Funk DT kit. I trimmed the edges to make them smaller than 12x12 and cut the centre out. I recyled some packaging again and dry brushed with gesso or white acrylic paint. A small amount of inking and I cut up a table runner that had rust marks on it. I know and yes I did feel guilty......but again I believe scrapbooking is about the future of these crafts blended with the past and not leaving things to rot away!!



I wanted to do one of those mastercard sayings you know......£30.00 on a new top
£20.00 on drinks
£10.00 on taxis
My best friends engagement party.... Priceless!!


But is just didn't seem right!! Maybe another time lol!!

Love and cardboard
