Chic bones...;)


Chic bones

I did this quick layout last night inspired by several challenges - the Lollipop Ladies and the fruit salad inspiration, the concepts at Mission to Create, the trims, ribbon and lace challenge at Show us your stuff - and the sudden compulsion to do a layout on me...*LOL* 

I found some photos on my phone taken back in January when I was stuck in a traffic jam...back when I truly wanted to embark on a Project 52 (take weekly self-portraits)....which hasn't exactly panned out. *LOL* The title for the piece - Chic Bones (totally corny I know) was inspired by the fact that I watching Bones while working on the layout! 


I used this plastic mesh frame (from Gauche Alchemy's Wholey Sheet Kit) as a mask and misted with the colours from the patterned paper onto white swiss dots cardstock.


I upcycled one of those twist-and-turn bottle caps - cut petals around, then added some wrinkle ribbon and baker's twine - for a fun handmade embellishment.

Patterned paper: Webster's Pages. Paper doilies. Maya mists. Trims. Ribbon. Lace. Baker's twine. Rub-on.
