i was lucky enough to stumble upon this cool love elsie flower-shaped book on super-duper sale a couple of months ago. i wasn't sure how it would be to work on flower-shaped pages...but for the most part i am liking it...and when i'm NOT liking it, i either ignore the shape & paste in a journalling block, or i just make square or round pages and slot them in.
so howsabout some "macro" details from said book of goodness?
i b'lieve you've seen this little dude...once or twice before...i have a couple frances meyer chipboard birds, but mostly i use the same one over and over as a template for patterned paper (in this case a map of moscow)
here are some creative imaginations rubs layered OVER text from an old book. i like the way they are slightly transparent, so that beneath the soft pink flower you can read helpful hints for successful curing of cement
i love these brenda walton alphabet stamps! (also a FAB bargain) sometimes i mix them with other alphas for a fun look; this time i outlined with marker and embellished with stamps & scraps & gems
