...using the most gorgeous sketches possible by Emma Stafrace. It was hard to choose one to use!!!
Anyways, I went with this one:
I wanted to follow the sketch quite closely....& I think I've succeeded....& I wanted to scrap about my Best Buddy...that one who's been there through it all - you know, the marriage, the kids, the divorce, the deaths....the everyday & the extraordinary. But I don't like to be soppy. So those feelings are covert rather than overt...but I hope you can see that this LO is still, despite not being soppy, about the love 2 friends share:)
The background is from a Heidi Swapp mask...I had ink over it after doing another page, so slapped it down on this paper so I didn't waste all that lovely ink!!!
My bottom corner cluster....seam binding ribbon from Craft Queen...chippy from Dusty Attic [YUP! Still managing to pop some on most of my pages:)], punched circles & hearts...
I just adore the Cherry Flair from A Piece of Cake Designs...this one fitted rather perfectly, I thought!
And more hearts, circles, washi tape tucked in & you can see where I've sewn the ribbon on too:)
A few little arrow stamps to direct the eye! The pink hearts have been misted through the mask after I'd done the bg .... that worked pretty well!!!
I really enjoyed doing this page....for Old Chooks I reckon we don't look too bad....& it's fun to journey through life together with a BFF...right???!!!!
