Monday 27th August

Papercraft Junkies challenge day again. Papercraft Junkies forum .Papercraft Junkies is the sister site of Crafty Carrot a great online shop owned by Tracey who's blog is here
As you now know, we are a very varied design team with everything from Atcs to Srapbooking and altered art included. More often than not we get carried away and have more than one example each for the challenges. So here is the challenge Something Old, Something New.
It can be old stash, new stash. Whatever old and new brings to mind. Wedding related. Grandparents with new grandchild. My 1st example is old stash new stash and old love new love.

Its my anniversary card for oh . Starting point I dug down to the bottom of my oldest stash box and took out the bottom paper. When I saw it . I thought it was a bit girly for a male anniversary card, however I think that the slightly oriental feel to the card. strengthens it. The Lillie's I bought when I 1st started card making . I bought a job lot of flowers and ended up with 100 lilies, of which I have probably used 10 all on sympathy cards. So that's the old. The new is the papermania chipboard stickers and reasonably new are the K & Co papers. It doesn't close flat so its a boxed card.

My second example is an old ufo in fact my 1st unfinished layout.

I had the two papers and the fibres done and the photos were adhered with re positionable in the center, Sometimes when I am planning I place repo in the center of my matted photos and then just move them around. When I am happy I can add glue to the edges of the photos without moving them. However the repo was nt very re positionable anymore well it was about 3 years ago that I did it. So that was my starting point. The new is the little metal flowers which I bought at a bead fair , The small photos are enlarged sections of the paintings in the main photo. I liked the subdued effect the blurring created.

So that's my two examples
