Have I said already how much lately I'm loving my Counterfeit Kit
of mustards, yellows, greys, whites and blacks...with a tiny hint of taupe - shopped from my own stash....got to love that!
Be prepared for a yellow blast!! LOL
Weeeell, when I put in an order at Scrap Therapy for other much needed tools, glues, Project Life products etc, Lee-Anne (owner) noticed on my blog how much I'm enjoying the 'Barista' colour scheme and popped in this little 6x6 beauty
I know its an older product and I've never really taken notice of it before,
nor have I had any great use for 6x6's .... and with my new found love of yellow..... weeeell.....
I had some fun with it in my new kit!!!
Let's see how I've changed my mind...
First about yellow...... not a colour that I've 'super loved' in the past, but tastes change!!!
Eeeek - me using patterned paper!! Yep...tastes change!!
6x6's - I don't usually scrap something that small - nor make many cards...but...
its the perfect size for the12x12 Project Life pocket plastic sleeve, the ones that are
divided up into 4x 6x6's.... these little pages just 'slip' in!! PERFECT!
using these from the little pad as the four background papers..
This is what I've come up with for my Project Life Album....
with a little bit of paint around the edges of journaling blocks and photos for definition...
Placed inside the pocket sleeves (the reflections are not always great to photograph though!)
Meaghan set of on a long weekend trip of a different kind a couple of weeks ago
... staying in unusual accommodation
A gypsy truck and a vintage train carriage....
It's like creating little LO's! Loads of fun!
And used some of cute brads to finish of some detailing.
Then.... more creating (was on a roll this weekend!)
My vintage diary...
Every now and then I like to take a page in my diary and decorate it
The 1st of June was really really cold!!
WINTER had struck!
Have you ever had a lot of those 'measurement' pages and needed a new purpose for them?
Here's something new to do with them....
( using a piece from the 6x6 pad)
It became a temperature measuring stick!
The fabulous little black and white words are
aren't they fabulous!!
Lastly for this mustardy tale.....
is another quote for Hannah's book...
Love this little flower page (also from the 6x6 pad)
Painted over the book print with mustard paint and a bit of white gesso
to give a variegated look
A bit of fussy cutting, the colours of the flowers were perfect. They look so different once cut and lifted from the patterned paper. The quote is free hand written with all its imperfections :)
The 'framing' is mustard and black watercolour pencil.
And the little hand drawn, red dotted plants... were inspired by the actual patterned paper itself:
When I saw those, I though... what a great idea!!!
There you are.... end of the yellow for today!
I hope you will play along with
I cant tell you how many times I'd been at appointments this past week and there on the desks in reception areas are those bells you touch to 'ting' for attention if unattended.
I would have LOVED to whip out my camera for a quick click... but it felt sooooo 'odd' and out of place to do so!!
Instead, I sat still just staring at the stupid things wishing!
I couldn't think of any other bells in our town that would be high up in a tower... and even door bell chimes either.....
Ah, then I remembered I have a little bell!!! One that has been long neglected..
and eventually after a long search and effort - found it!!
A little brass bell with a delightful little 'ting'!
It needs a good shining up!
