CREATIVE SCRAPPERS #296: An Ode to a Fellow Scrapper.

Well, not really. But a funny thing happened. My scrappy mate, Anna U
popped up this LO just a day or so after I took a photo with a similar theme:
So, I sent her my photo. She sent me hers & I've used the CREATIVE SCRAPPERS sketch:
Originally I thought of using washi tape for those strips, but I went with Gelatos,
blended & made more subtle with a coat of white gesso.
And of course, I've used my journaling to reinforce this idea from the sketch:
This is also an 'ode' to Anna's more subtle style. Although, I must say, that cup of coffee
she has is NOT exactly 'subtle'!!!!
I enjoyed doing this journaling! It's one of my fave things:)
Some closies:
 Some close ups of my clusters. Below is a Funky Flair Studio flair.
 Some Kaiser Craft owls & a Cocoa Vanilla sticker below:
 And one last closie of the top corner:
OWL leave you with that! Oh! That's a touch of vellum behind the photos.
And of course, I've stitched through the title. I'm sure Anna will approve of that!!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  11. Oh this is a great layout! What a good idea! I love the fact that Wally features in the picture. It reminds me of those children's illustrations where you have to find Wally amongst all the faces.
    Do you knit your own socks? I used to but now I think I can't quite remember how to do it....

  16. If there is anything that makes me happier than a scrapbook page, it's a scrapbook page about knitted socks. But I bet you knew I was going to say that. Tho of course the best bit of all is the thought of the two of you tied together across the word by one thread. Or several, those look like pretty thick and cosy socks
