You love to Climb

This LO is another park shot from Mothering Sunday, this park has some super climbing frames and with a bit of a hand we got both of them up the frame and ready to pose for a photo.  The papers I have used for this are from Cosmo Crickets Social club.  I created the diecut from one of my stencils and then edged it with blue paper which I cut around with scalloped scissors.  There is quite a bit of stitching on this LO, I wanted to have a go at some free stitching (which I think means taking the foot of your machine - if it dosen't - that is what I did).  I stuck some hessian having frayed it a bit on the page and then stitched around it.  I layered up lots of different strips behind the photo and added the stitched lines across the edge of the die cut.  I've seen lots of little flags so with a cocktail stick, some paint and old book pages and a stamp I made myself some.  I also added some blue paint splots that I sprinkled some embossing powder on and gently heated.  The title is jillibean soup corrugated card and cosmo cricket mini alphabet.  I covered the corrugated alpha in blue paint and then dry brushed green and then white paint on the edges, a few buttons and this is the result.  Not so much time for crafting at the moment, but lots of photo taking of my kids - I'll have a big photo order soon :)  

Also if you want some inspiration then there are classes to do on the home page of ukscrappers each week during the summer all in pdfs that you can download.
