Express Yourself

This is my ukscrappers scrapfactor LO for last week, the challenge was to use texture, so lots of sewing and some tissue paper, felt and string to add lots of texture to it. I use Echo Park For the Record papers, and started by putting a wash of watered white acrylic on the background and then stitched lots of lines across the page. I made a tissue paper strip by stamping and then sticking tissue paper on a sheet of acetate (I cut it to go around the photo too so the LO wasn't too bulky). I cut, ruffled and stitched the other sheets of paper, and place a poundshop crocheted coaster behing them. I splattered some ink across the LO too (I had a bit of a disaster as the ink ended up looking pink on the white paint, and I tried to make it redder by adding more, and the blobs just got bigger and still a few doily stickers and I couldn't see it anymore!! :) I painted and cut out a piece of text from a book for the express title using Heidi Swapp chipboard letters. I stapled the 3 pieces of string and threaded them through one of the cardstock elements and added a couple more felt roses.

The shots are of my DS expressing himself to the kite that he is following up in the sky - he has a huge range of expressions and faces you can often see how he is feeling just by looking at him

Now onto the challenge for this week which was no patterened I have used lots of other things. Please go over and have a look in the gallery and look at all the lovely work that has been created for this week, and you can join in and play along to win prizes.
