Not going to be so late at the Craft Barn challenge this week!! This card I have made for a friend's husband who is always fixing stuff so thought it suitable...don't know if you would call it a hobby though!!! LOL
The challenge closes at the weekend so still time to get crafty!!!!!!
Just before the children went back to school in September we went for a day out at Wallasea/Creeksea. My parents had a caravan here in the early 60's and we used to come from London and spend the weekends in the country! I was in my early teens and I used to go all over...walking, bus rides and boat rides! I remember going to Burnham and coming back with a yellow polka dot bikini...the song was in the pop charts at the time!!!!!!!! Children are not allowed now to dash about like we did then and it is a shame! Anyway...this is a photo that was taken on the boat on the way to Burnham.....very different now!! You ring for the boat to come and get you!!! When I used to get the ferry it used to run to a timetable!!!
I am joining in the challenge at Scrap Our Stash whose word this month is STAMP!
I used.....S = Stickers, T = Tickets, A = Alphas, M = Metal anchor, P = Paint and Photo corners
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to scrap!
The challenge at Picture This require 1 photo, corners and splatter. I used chipboard photo corners and covered them in paper and then inked to tone down the colour! I painted the corrugated card and then splattered....never splattered before...what a mess I made!!!!!!!!
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to get messy like me!! http://picturethischallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/april-1st-picture-this-1photo.html
I have found a new challenge blog that requires you to upcycle!!!
This months challenge #46 - Typeface is to use different fonts and to upcycle something!! I used corrugated card from a pizza box that I had stripped back and there are three different fonts on the layout.
The challenge closes 3rd May so loads of time to join in and save something from landfill!! http://lessology.blogspot.sg/2015/04/lessology-challenge-46-typeface.html
I found this very old photo - circa 1955!!! The journaling reads -'Where are they now? Who are they? We were friends 60 years ago!'
I don't know who took the photo but it is obviously us kids playing out in the street!!!!! No-one plays out in the street any more!!!!!
I used the sketch from Sketchabilities - 135....
The challenges closes 29th March so have to get your skates on to enter!!
