In return for my pages I received amazing works of art back from all of the talented ladies who took part in the challenge.
These are the pages I created...
My Vintage page, made for Maggie
I have embossed on Perspex and used it to frame a vintage image. This technique is one handed down to me from my dear scrapping buddy Carol Noake's
My next page was created for Donna O Leary. Donna's theme was 'All things Tim'
I must confess here that I did rush out and buy Tim Holtz goodies especially for this page, lol...any excuse!!
I have created a tiny 'Tim book' and attached it to one of the journal pages.
A close up look at Tim Holtz crafty bitz
...and Tim Holtz dies.
Tanya's theme was 'Random'.I know Tanya loves paint and bright colours, so tried to include both on the pages I created for her. Have also included tags and a pocket using an envelope for Tanya to journal on.
Found out after completing this page that Tanya is not a huge fan of 'bulky'..sorry Tanya!! I'm a big fan of bulk...just in case you cannot tell!!
Nature, was Angela Knight's chosen theme. I loved creating Angela's pages. I chose to cover the pages with a serviette before adding top layers.
For fun I collected seeds from my herbs in the garden for Angela to plant, and lavender which I secured in a fabric bag, so my page will even have the smell of 'nature'.
This little bird is cut from the same serviette that I used on the base.
Jean's 'Random' page is next. Again I have pockets that hold journaling tags.
Quotes to Live By. Jonnece's pages .
Again I have hidden pages for journal ling and quotes
All Things Recycled. These pages are for Ngaere.
Almost all of the embellishments on my pages are recycled items. I endeavored to make a 'kind of flower' from an old broken zip along with flowers from rolled and dyed newspaper.
Oddments of ribbon and pages from old books come in very handy.
Using an envelope stuffed with card and magnets, I made a secrete Heidi hole for journalling
...an another envelope pocket book!
This old playing card made a fun pocket after I embossed it to add some texture.
Thanks for looking and do stayed tuned as the pages I received from this swap are super cool and I will add pictures very soon!
