When we go away I almost always take my 'monster' pencil case - I try to fit in some crafty time - usually with an art journal! I do have supplies there but my pencil case has all my favourites in!
This is how I like it to be but it had become a bit of a quick storage for little scraps and was becoming harder to close - so, time for a sort out - it was raining on Friday morning so I tipped everything out and just put back in my essentials!
This is only part of what came out-
There were also bits of ribbon, twine, a button, a couple of small stamps and a lot of fluff!!
Now I know many of you would bin this but you know me better than that!
I had taken my smallest journal(31/2" x 4")with me so set myself a challenge of using up some of these scraps!
This is the first page
I used Distress ink to edge a mop up page that had also had some splashes on too!
I then stamped on the butterfly and edged that. The heart was inked with some red Distress ink and stamped with another Kaisercraft background stamp.
Went round the edge of the butterfly with a B4 pencil and smudged it to make a shadow and added a chit chat sticker.
I am entering the That's Crafty! Challenge blog 'Wings 'n Things challenge
and also linking to Brenda's Visual Journal at Bumblebees and Butterflies.
Thanks for looking, Chris
