Orange, purple, black ...

Another notebook, this time tall and slim using an offcut of DCWV pocket full of posies purple and orange paper, which is for Clear it out: anything goes - orange, purple or black or all 3, also Hiding in my craft room 66: black, orange and purple. The ribbon and bow with gems came from Hobbycraft. Everything used has been in my stash for a long time.

Peacock colours

Also for Friday mashup 79: feeling blue:


The card I've used for it was not only a snippet from my offcuts box, but was originally cut from a stationery wallet, so it is recycled, a snippet of stitched ribbon and some lovely shiny decoupaged flowers (yet again, sorry about the glare).

Little pink notebook

For my sale on Saturday I altered 16 small notebooks suitable to tuck into a pocket or small handbag - these went down a treat - I sold all of them.

This is a mainly pink one, using a snippet of DCWV paper, some layered flower stickers and an epoxy padded pink oblong sticker.

Sorry about the reflection, but the paper is very 'flittered' and shiny, as are the flowers and sticker.
