Hello folks! There's a fabulous challenge over on Scrapology this month...we're scraplifting a gorgeous page by the uber talented Gabrielle Polloco (see it here) and the added challenge is to use yarn.
I wanted to follow the gardening theme but an appropriate photo didn't come to mind.... never fear! Mr. Dry came to the rescue and suggested this photo of our eldest, Tommy, (who will be 13 later this month and going through a 'I don't want to be photographed' stage) The papers are by WRMK, Boho collection. I printed a vintage label from tinternet, resizing in my graphics program and inked the edges once it was printed and cut out. I created the ribbon banner by strengthening behind with some cardstock, folding and cutting the ends before adhering. I die cut the brown funky foam letters. The little sunflower has been in my stash for years!... I knew they were going to come in handy one day ;o) and the butterflies, again images from tinternet, printed onto card, shaped and finished off with glossy accents.
The lovely wooden bird on a branch is available here and I just inked it up with distress inks before adhering. I found a poem about sunflowers that I thought would be great to use on this layout too and my WRMK sew easy tool came in handy when I hand stitched the the large yellow zig zag circle.
I hope you'll be able to join in with this months challenge. Jill from Cardinal Colours is providing the prize and my fellow DT are providing fabulous inspiration!
Ciao for now!
