friends layout

Hand bound book layout--there's another layout
from this same book in the following post . . .






(click to enlarge pics)

Been working on the layouts in a hand bound book; have
had this image around for a while, I think it's very striking,
and have been itching to incorporate into something.

Vintage ephemera, stamped images, vellum, crayon, paints,
label maker warnings, computer printed text, netting, and
homemade heart charm.

Challenge me this---
Gingersnap Creations, Gal Pals
Card and Scrap, charms
Cooking It Up With Kate, green, girl, group of something
Crafts and Me Challenges, add a heart
I Brake For Challenges, backgrounds
Shopping Our Stash, Vintage or Shabby Chic
Crazy Amigo Challenge, together
The Cheerful Stamp Pad, Let's Reuse--well, most of the elements
in this are reused, but the two most unusual ones start with the
typed text that came from an old composition book. HOW did she
get it typed, when it was bound? I dunno. Maybe she took it apart,
typed her notes, and then bound it all back together? Also, the
label tapes are adhered to pieces of a shipping envelope that came
to us from India. My daughter and I had ordered kurtas, and the
envie they came in is a lovely shade of light turquoise, PLUS it
has all these fun fibres stringing all over it, so of course I had
to save it! It's actually used in several layouts in this book.

Happy Weekend, everyone!
