White with 1 April

Hiya All

We here in the White Household have been hit hard over the school holidays and Easter with a very unfriendly virus. So the last 2 weeks have been spent with sick kiddies and that means no creating :(
But I did manage to get 1 LO done in that time for me :D
This month the criteria for White with 1 is

Olive Green

How could I not give this a go, twine is one of my favourite stables, so here it is

This is a photo of my sister Jane when she was visiting the mother country England back in 1996, I thought it went with this criteria really well. I have used MME 'Lush', Imaginisce 'Out on a Whim' and various bits of fabric. I shouted myself a new Jenni Bowlin Stamp to create the Banner and used some of my 'Daily Junque' Ephemera pack as well. I created most of the flowers on this LO and used my new butterfly punch ( I got off one of my BFF'S for my Birthday)

This next LO is from a class I did at Paper Addiction at the start of the month, it was to kick off my series called "Get your ScrapBook on", I want to show everyone that you can create LO's in any style. I started with a freestyle LO, so everyone could get Arty. I started with a piece of Kraft and created this :D

Lot's of stamping, painting, glimmering and doodling on this. TFL

Scraphappy Kat's Friday Night 8th April 2011

Hello All

Here is my take on this week's Scraphappy Kat's sketch, I have used an older range of Sassafras Lass 'Count me In' as well as some lovely doily's from Tallulah Belle's and used some raffia string from the cheap shop.  Love how this has turned out, really glad I went ahead and did it this week, as this photo has been sitting on my desk for quite awhile now.

I used some crackle paint in the 4 corners and Glimmer misted the centre of the LO as well.  I used a TLC Crafts Flower as well and handcrafted some spiral flowers.
