So, this post was meant for the 27th, however, we had no internet for 4 days and still cannot make a phone call and then had no power for a full day. Now, if you wish to make your crafting journey a little more challenging than normal, may I recommend going powerless!!! Very special – in no way at all! Anyway, just one of the many pleasures of living in the country … I really do love it. So, I have finally got a craft space happening for me to play in, but it is still quite chaotic and being setup and now in the midst of it all, we are going away for a few days. Aaaaagh, how does one go from living in the city to the country and life gets busier?? That is just weird. Anyway, I do manage to escape away to the craft room now and even got to stay up into the wee hours last night.
Below is my second instalment for the month and I decided to continue to use the Hero Arts European Adventure Digital Download DK041 as on my last piece of art from the 17th of this month. The first layout was France inspired, so this one I used other elements from the kit that were English inspired, the bus, coffee cup and tower. My papers came from a country collection by DCWV and various other elements from all sorts of sources. It is hard for me to share where all my various pieces of ephemera and elements come from as I always unpack them out of their original packaging and buy bits and pieces from everywhere. I will openly admit that I am completely addicted to this awesome hobby!
My layout is below, once again, red, white and blue themed.
My favourite part of this layout is the little cluster down the bottom with the rolled back area of paper. See the close up below, plus a few more close ups of various parts of the layout. I shall leave that with you all, stay happy and well, be kind to one another and always find a little bit of time in each day to be creative.
