Well, here goes...my first project for Snazzy's.....be gentle with me!
When I first saw the 7 Gypsies 'Lille' Collection of papers, this one really stood out for me - I'm not a scrapbooker but this really felt like a good 12x12 paper to make a simple page but without looking too simple....do you know what I mean? If you don't, no worries lol I also had this 12x12 box frame sitting in my craft room, think Ive had it for 4 years or more - you can still buy them from 'The Range'. It was a plain wood frame but I've given it one of my painted treatments (which will be explained in the future).
Anyhow, I took the 'Life is Good' sheet and spritzed some red distress stain across the page, not sure if it shows up in the pics or not - I then took some Weathered Wood Distress ink, and rubbed it here there to give some of the printed images depth.
Ive added a 7Gypsies 'Lille' tag but I cut the end off and used it further up the page on the left hand side. (black with a printed number on it).
The name is Grungeboard letters which have simply been painted in black.
The butterflies and moths have been cut out of a piece of paper from the 7Gypsies 'Conservatory Collection'.
Ive also added a Tim Holtz clock face and spinner and a piece of ribbon coloured with distress inks.
I really wish I could show you the photo, which happens to be my nephew Jake but my brother/Jake's Dad wasn't to keen,which I do understand - I realise I'm biased but he's a real cutie,well, you'll just have to believe me on that one!
