I think I've done my best work in scrapbooking from the inspiration given to us at ASJ constantly.  It pushes the boundaries that blurs the lines between scrapping only paper - to fabric to canvas and various art media.  This month is all about mixed media and I happily handstitched metal,chiffon, vintage lace, pearls, beads and sequins to a 100yr old piece of quilting - along with it is a row of hooks which has lay for decades in a family treddle machine drawer here at home.
I absolutely need to do more of this - it makes my heart sing.
Go check out the criteria here - and challenge yourself!
The dt samples are incredible motivation!


This is total fun - the criteria is found here
Hand-drawn and cut title....the word 'Go'..... and the colour Green!
Great technique! I had forgotten that this is something that can be easily done especially when an alpha isnt working, havent got the right colour OR not enough of a letter!
Two sisters and a cousin..... close as can be!

Hope you can join in these fabulous challenges!
