Random piece

During my recent workroom clearance I came across a box of clothing labels that I've been hoarding...I can no longer remember what I was going to do with them but I did save some and make a spread in a journal so that is what I want to share today...

Torn strips of paper, stamping, clothing labels, some ephemera from my stash...

Well, my internet is still iffy so this piece never got posted yesterday ☹️

I've done some more over Saturday as the weather was pretty rubbish....

Colour me positive:
Get up an hour early to live an hour more 

I used a recent claim your happy index card, some desk scraps & ideology

Be bold or italic, never regular.

I went with bright bold colours and some scraps, stamping and the quote!

Her hair is made from flowers that I diecut from paper scraps & then glued down....her lashes are tipped with stickles as are the flowers at the bottom.

  8. I spotted the Krazy Jane clothing label on your journal page, fabulous! That is such an inspired idea to display them on your double page spread. All of the artwork is lovely but I especially like that clothing label project.
