Below is a pattern by Dorthy Holness something a little different. When it stands its like a tall square.But it will fold flat for posting. I painted the flowers with felt tips and a damp paint brush . doing a few layers to build up colour. The lace panels are worked separate and sewn onto card then added to the main piece, they hide where the flowers have been released from the main parchment at the folds. there is a close up up to show the panels
Scrapbooking. I am still catching up scrapping events.
First is granddaughter Chantel. a couple of snap chat shots. I loved these so I just had to scrap them. I used my minc machine, first time in ages to add foil detail to the square tag. I managed to be able to use the negative of that too behind the main square.
Below is a close up of the minc foil. the stars are snip art. I have a square of thin chipboard stars and has the name suggested I just used scissors to snip them up into the size I wanted.
The Zoo in July. Chester Zoo was brilliant. Wide huge enclosures for the animals, a boat ride, and a bat walk, Which I will never do again, yuk. dark and smelly and bats nudging your hair!no thanks!lol
I took this close up to show that once the arrow paper clip is removed and map still opens
"If you are looking for a friend without faults..then you will never have any friends!"
