Over on Gingersnap Creations amongst their wonderful selection of challenges, I spotted the printed paper post by Alison Manning. So simple yet very eye catching.
I was thinking about this post all day yesterday as I just seem to have drawers full of pre printed paper, most of which hasnt seen daylight for years as I only tend to use plain colours, it seems, lately and stamp onto them. So I went on a pretty paper hunt this morning and discovered one of those pieces that I bought during my first year of crafting that I used to just look at, stroke and put away again ....yeah I know, how do I manage to stroke paper and/or craft wearing my 'special jacket' that has extra long sleeves that fastens at the back lol(admit it, I bet you had 'best paper not for using....(ever!)....in those early days :0)
Heres what I came up with....
This three panel folded card is made from matting and layering preprinted paper and stamping/colouring this fab little girl, who is called Marci from Stampotique), which I then folded to make a cute little quickmake.
The saying says' Somewhere on your journey, don't forget to turn around and enjoy the view'
Do you like how I highlighted her little knees with white pen...heehee
