Niki's 'Self-Portrait' page

Hi Everyone

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves last night I know I enjoyed creating with the fab kit we had to play with!

Here is what I came up with:

I am a bit more wasteful than Sandra and have therefore used my whole kit on just 1 page!

I used the lighter shade as my background and stuck on a large piece of the blue/brown paper. Before I actually stuck though I gutted the background paper so I could use parts of that on the layout as well.  From that spare piece I mounted my photo, mounted the strip at the top and cut out one of the flowers and the swirl you can see in the bottom right corner.

I added my fibres and clustered the buttons over to the right:
I also added a few buttons from my own button collection, a little twill flower that I just sewed together using twill tape, and a charm.  I kept some of my fibres back to tie through the middle of all the buttons as many of you who know me know that I can't stand naked buttons!!

I added my title using Prima alphabet stickers - some of which we will have in stock in the shop very soon (hopefully by next week)

The strip at the top was made by using some of the blue/brown paper and the EK Success Deco Scallop border punch which we currently do have in stock at the great price of £13.99.

I didn't want to cover up too many of the gorgeous flowers that were on the paper so I carefuly cut round one with a craft knife (I covered the back of the paper with a brown square so there were no gaps, and curled up the petals and re-attached over the top of my strip.  I also cut round half of the middle flower so I could slip my photo under the petals:

I hope you like it and don't foget that we have a few kits left over if anyone would like to replicate my page as well as Sandra's. Just email us to reserve one.

I'm in Portugal next week so won't be at crop - see you the week after!
