Scraps and letter G

Hello Everyone. It is cold here today and the forecast is for lots of rain so I guess it will be a crafting day for me :0) Two things that I made yesterday to show to you today.

At Artful Times the theme this time is Scrap Art


I have a drawer full of scraps of bought papers so I delved into those and chose 2 papers and one full paper that I had put in there thinking I could cut it up at some point.

I used the full piece as a background and coloured some of the flowers that were all white before. I used a felt tip and black and white pen.

The little bird shapes and wings I cut from other bits of papers and drew stitched edges to them. The whole thing was stuck onto a tent card and on the edge of that I drew stitching to match the birds. It still looked a bit bare in parts so I stamped 'love' here and there-you can never have too much love :)


The letter this time at The Craft Barn Alpha Dictionary Page Challenge is G


I found the image on Google but when I printed it out my cerise colour had run out so it looked wishy washy. This made me decided to do the background to match the image as it was.


Thank you for dropping by and a big thank you if you find time to leave a comment as well.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie x

Such a great word, I love the quote - I've never heard it before. If you hadn't mentioned the printer ink running out I wouldn't have guessed - it looked like you had given it a faded aged look on purpose.

Lovely alpha page and scrappy page. You solved the problem with the colours well! Hugs, Valerie

BJ said...

I wouldn't have noticed the printer problem either as your G page looks just great to me. Super word too. BJ

Such a pretty page with the birds. Your alpha image is a wonderful depiction of Gavotte. Turned out really nice matching the background, serendipity.

Your little paper scrap birds are enchanting, Chrissie - and I rather like the muted greens you ended up with for the Gavotte (happy accident, I'd say)... great word choice, and one of my favourite Nietzsche quotes!

Oh, I love the scrap paper birds, and the stamped "Love" is perfectly sweet looking! That was a good choice to fill in with. Such a cheerful idea on a cold day. I also like your altered book pages - the dancers are quite charming. I can almost hear the harpsichord.

Blessings my dear,
