WOYWW #211


If you have been following along with my blog you will know how much I have been playing in my new journal.. These pages I followed along with France Papillon from paper artsy There is so much to learn and this is all still so new to me. This took me days to do, so many layers and many new techniques..   I did adjust it to suit me but I loved this the layering the crackle texture.  The butterfly did not work the way that France did it, but I cut it out on the plastic and stuck it on and it has such fantastic texture.  I love to adapt things to what I have on hand and France Papillon is one of my favourites to watch on youtube.  I love her style and the layers she gets on the page.. I did the label on the left as you can see I made 2. I made it with the men from Tim Holtz set of stamps but it just did not match the theme of flying.. So went with the balloon from a set from nice crane designs .  This old balloon is one I have been wanting to use for a while.  Quote is ' No one can do it for you, choose to use your wings and fly' 




I had some more happy mail from Neet this is just wonderful double sided front and back same Atc, just beautiful. It came in a pretty little envelope. Thanks Neet  I love it.. 

Julia from  WOYWW gets us all together every Wednesday to have a look at desks from all over the world.. Grab a cuppa and take a browse.. Thanks for taking the time to comment and enjoy the blog hopping around all the desks.

Have a great day
Sandy :)

  3. Your France inspired page looks fab - I have a heart that I did like that, on too stiff plastic so it wouldn't peel off!! Gorgeous ATC from Neet. Helen 31

  5. Oh that page is stunning. I so love looking at AJ pages but cannot ever follow thru with making them and envy those who can. The ATC is pretty - did I read that right? It's two sided with no "back"? Is the info on the envelope? hidden in the image? Love the colours!

    Happy WOYWW!

  17. I LOVE it - what a great quote too, fab choice. The colours are gorgeous, you're being very modest about your accomplishments. And very tidy in their creation..can you imagine if that had happened at my desk?!!
