Out of a Hat Challenge 61

Hello Everyone who pops in to Jumbled Crafts . This is a scheduled post as I am not really around this week. Fingers crossed that it all goes well as I won't be able to fix it until Sunday if it doesn't. That's just me talking to myself as if it doesn't go right you won't see this post anyway :(

This week at Out of a Hat the challenge is to use a photograph somewhere on the project you make.

This is what I made. A journal with empty pages so far. Just corrugated carboard , a couple of jigsaw pieces and some dyed lace to cover the Bind-it-all stuff.

I started out with this photograph that Vic took in our garden

Then I played about with it in Paint Shop Pro and ended up with this design. Oh dear it's up side down.

Then it turned into a postcard before becoming part of the journal front.

Do pop to see what Von, Janet and Sandra have made and hope you will say hello if you have time

Hope your week is going well
