Konnichiwa


From Japan! 


This week we visited Japan in the Scrapboutique postcards of the world competition.
I just LOVE the colours in this weeks postcard....and here is my LO for this week....


I took inspiration from the red, yellow, orange, green & black from the postcard.  We also had to use a paper technique that gave dimension - eg. paper folding.  I have made a pleated/scrunched flower, plus a strip of pleated paper....and some quilled circles - which represent the pebbles mentioned in the postcard - as well as the brads.....My pic is of the Japanese Gardens at Cowra. 


Here are a few more LO's that I've done this week.....

This one was for the Scrapboutique "By the book"  cyber crop that started last night.
It was for Chelsea's speed scrap (that got turned into an all weekend kind of thing...LOL)
We had to do a LO like a newspaper/magazine article - with a headline (title)...and at least 50 words of journaling written like a news article.  I chose to do my story about the cows on Norfolk Island...and how they have right of way!




& this one is for Manon's May stash stomper challenge, at Scrapboutique.
To do our LO's based on a sketch, plus to use up ribbons &/or decorative edged papers.
It feels so good to use up bits & pieces that have been in your stash for yonkers.....I think that's why I love these stash stompers so much!

Well, I must get on with my weekend chores :(
Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day here....thanks for dropping by, & have a good one!
