Well, this month for our LESSology CHALLENGE I had a bit of trouble as I don't have zips.
I detest sewing. Luckily, I found a couple of zip STAMPS!
Phew!Wiping the sweat off the brow.

Zips always make me think 'Grungy Girl'.
And for some reason, Chloe ends up getting scrapped.
 Maybe it's to do with her being a London girl these days. And young. 
And she DID have to stand in front of some Brick Lane Markets graffiti!!
 So, this page was born. Thank you Lizzy C for the clock die, for the string & the old sheet music.
Sheet music, you say. Where? Why, beneath the embossing, ink, paint, gelatos, and gesso.
Of course!
See? This was a recycled element, too.
So was the corrugated card from an old box that I used behind the photo.
I also used some Dusty Attic chippy 'waste':
And my title:
Gold & black embossing powder mixed together - oh, how I love thee!!!
As much as I love these gorgeous owl girls. Thanks Gail! They were perfect for this page;)
OK, you've been soooo patient...or maybe not....maybe you just 'page downed' all the way to here!
Gotta shout out to Ronda Palazzari for the gifted pp, too:)
Head on over to our LESSology challenge this month & get zippy!!!
Cheers, & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
