Scrap Africa - Guest Designer - Challenge # 21

Hello there scrappers, a big welcome to my blog today.
 
Challenge # is now live over on the Scrap Africa blog......and the challenge is to use Washi tape & twine....easy peasy, eh....and fun!!
 
So here is my take on the challenge...
 

Using some more of those fairly old Echo Park papers - Victoria Gardens.
And the pic is of a lone single sunflower that suddenly just popped up in my garden!!
I'm not sure how I never noticed it until it was this tall, its all a bit bizzarre, almost as if it just madly grew overnight!!
 
 
 

Here you can see where I've used some twine - wrapped around one of the photos, and as a small clump at the bottom of my cluster
 
 
 

My Washi tape is the blue checked pieces that are in a few different spots over the layout.  I first stuck the washi to some scrap cardstock so that it was more visual & didn't blend into the patterned papers that are below it.  There's also a 2nd washi tape at the bottom area of layered PP's.
 
 
 

 Here is my small cluster of flowers, button, small crochet doilie, Prima ticket & a 2Crafty square flourish.
 
 

More blue washi tape at the top of the page, with another strip of grey striped washi in under the patterned triangles.
 
 
 

My title...and standing tall, it sure did!
 
 
 

And here is a close up overall view of the main areas of the layout.
 
I have a small amount of strip journaling on the front of the layout, but the main journaling about this lone tall sunflower is on the back .
 
Thanks so much for visiting today....if you'd like to check out the awesome inspiration from the Scrap Africa DT, or would like to enter this fabo challenge, then pop on over to their blog HERE
 
Until next time.....take care & happy scrapping! xx

This looks lovely! Perhaps a bird dropped a seed and it was growing there blending in until it grew its flower head!! Your colors are perfect for your photo and gorgeous design and layers!
