I'm a Weekend Warrior!!!

I've recently discovered another gorgeous group of gals that don't mind me chomping their ears off... It's over at the Little Scrapbook Shop they have a LOT of challenges and I partook in my first one of theres this afternoon. It's called Weekend Warrior. It's a random extra challenge that is thrown in to the fray from time to time ;)

The aspects of this weekends challenge was to utilise the following items:

1. Masking tape - Used for the background texture. I layer the background where I want texture with scrunched up masking tape. Paint over the top with gold paint, when that's 3/4 dry paint over the top with antique white. It gives a nice distressed vintage feel :)
2. Fabric - I used hessian. Distressed and used behind flower sprays and in top right hand corner embie cluster. I've also threaded strips of hessian that came off during the distressing to put the bows in the handmade buttons.
3. Book page or part thereof - In top right hand corner under mini embie cluster and as part of the 'breakthrough' where the photo is.

4. Anything else you need

And create a layout! That's it!

This is what I came up with....

I spy some very gorgeous Pretty Petals tissue flowers here - they were originally white, and I've glimmered them "denim blue"
and some My2Angels Stemmed Starflowers (which are on special at the moment)
Handmade buttons :)


  1. Awesome I must pop over for a looksee

  2. That layout is just stunning, the flowers look awesome on that gorgeous layout, how exciting!

  3. OMG girl this layout is amazing - just love the hessian and those buttons up the top look so effective with the string LOVE LOVE THIS
    PS Thanks for sharing the news about my sale on the stemmed flowers :)
