Celebrate Life...

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I'd signed up for Shimelle's online class 'Something From Almost Nothing'.   The class focuses on getting more from the stash we already have.  There's lots of tips, prompts and tutorials that help build an album entitled Celebrate Life.  In lesson 1 you create the album cover - and here it is.

This week's City Crafter Challenge 'Back To Basics' to use paint and recycled cardboard was perfect for this project. I used white acrylic paint on the cardboard and metal oval frames.



Patterned Paper: Basic Grey June Bug
Metal Frames: Stampin Up Hodge Podge Hardware
Letter Stickers: Adorn-it
Border Die:  Tim Holtz On The Edge - Brackets
Denim Fabric Scraps
