Good evening everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend. My SIL Jo has started a new challenge blog with six of her blogging buddies. Emma is also on the team and both have been very supportive since I started my blog in October last year and often pop in and leave encouraging comments! Their new challenge blog is Totally Papercrafts and their first ever challenge is set, the theme being;
F R I E N D S
They are also kicking off with a blog hop - this is the first one I've joined in on! I really wanted to show my support to them in their first (rather fab) challenge! and used it as inspiration for a book swap on a certain forum. I have not been blogging long and have already made some cherished crafty friends, so this will actually be a gift for someone else in the swap!
I have used papers so hope this still counts!! I used purple mulberry paper from stash to actually cover the book and used this as a backdrop for some basic grey Wisteria papers. I used two Charmed downloads and inside the circle saw a perfect opportunity to use some two tone papers from my stash too! I coloured the images with copics and sakura pens. I applied Glamour Dust to the pixies wings and the large flower. I applied Glossy Accents to some more fragile areas to ensure it all remains intact and can withstand wear and tear!
Here, you can see how the two tone paper has developed a third LOL! Not keen on the dark green now Seemed like a good idea at the time but now wish I'd kept to the lighter shade! I love using quotes and poems as some of you may know and I simply could NOT let this opportunity pass me by LOL!! The sentiment reads:
"Friends...they cherish one another's hopes,
they are kind to one another's dreams"
Thankyou so much for stopping by. Why not pop over to Totally Papercrafts if you have time and take a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
