This one was for my dear friend and Teamie on UKS- Tink ... I hope she will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed doing them. Here CJ theme was 'Quotes' and I'm rather partial to the quote that Ginger Rogers is reported to have said:
I did everything that Fred Astaire did but backwards and in high heels!
I totally understand what she means as I too spend my working life in a mans world and yet never get the recognition that I would if I were a man.. so here are my two 8 x 8 CJ pages.
As the images I used were printed from the internet and the papers I wanted to use were soft creams, blacks and greys, I decided to adjust the images to sepia to blend them all together better. I mainly used leftover scraps from a kit I had used a few weeks back (see the previous post April Week 3 challenge) They are mainly Prima papers with some other scraps of cardstock ... anyway... enough waffle here are the images.
As you can see, I layered the papers together and used a film strip die cut and then stamped the chandelier and scrolls and added random embellishments that went together. I really enjoyed doing this one and am looking forward to having some more time again after my sons wedding, next week, to spend more time working in 8 x 8 as I am comfortable with the size. Thanks for looking
