Here's my Lo for the UKS May House Challenge which is:
THEME : MY FAVOURITE PLACE / TECHNIQUE : STITCHING
I've copied this from the description I put on UKS:
I've gone for a totally diferent take on this challenge.
In the mid 70's, Dad and I went through a life changing experience and after that my favourite place was to be anywhere he was. The photo shows the award ceremony with Dad and I centre stage.
I've hand-stitched the frame around the photo, the star and the spiral. The background is white card coloured with 3 versacolor ink pads. The scroll and lettering were made with yellow paper. I used a pen to add fake stitching to the letters and inked the edges of the scroll with versacolor.
Last but by no means least, heres a scrapping challenge LO I did on the DoCraft site set by a member.
We were allowed to use:
* 2 pieces of plain card stock
* 1 piece of patterned card stock
* 1 photo
* 2 different ribbons
* and nothing else
Well, I finally got my head around it and came up with this for which I used:
* dark red bazzill for the base and a small piece of green card to matt the photo
* 1 piece of 6x6 patterned paper (instead of card stock) from a K & Co paper pad. I cut this up and used it for framing and as embellishments
* photo of a hill/mountain near Burnham-on-Sea that Mum and I used as our landmark when we were on holiday there
* brown and burgundy ribbons layered on the green card to frame the photo
* that's your lot
Challenge met and thoroughly enjoyed too
Well done if you got to the end of this post and thank you so much for looking
