Our latest challenge is up on the Southern Girls Challenge blog – Number 152 is about going Retro with your embellishments…… buttons, brads, ribbons….. hunt out those old school embellishments in your stash and join us!
I decided to use buttons – and you can tell i’m out of practice, as the first layout I finished with was…. hmmmm… not something I was totally happy to share. Luckily, over the weekend, I was on a scrappy weekend with my lovely ScrapMates (a fantastic bunch of women that enjoy hanging out and creating stuff with paper!), and I was able to work on something a lot more share-worthy.
The layout started with a photo of my lovely, old fashion styled tea cups. Perfect to pair with a retro embellishment like buttons! The only buttons I had in my stash were quite clean, and modern in style, although they were wooden. So, with that in mind, I decided to keep everything fairly clean and simple….
Those of you “of a certain age” might remember a column in the New Zealand Women’s Weekly called “over the tea cups” – perfect title here don’t you think?
Hope you check out the other creations the rest of Team Lou have put together, and join us in the challenge.
