Crafting from the sofa #8 - Retro circles

Well I'm having to schedule some posts quite ahead of myself as I seem to have been so prolific with the panels for my lovely Eileen Hull HeArtfelt Journal, but in keeping with the previous panel - Retro Garden - we now have some Retro Circles.


I still used the same 12 x 12 paper stack and similar colours and a doxide background created along the way with mop ups from different projects. I didn't add and stencilling or stamping as I just love the depth the oxides create with layers of dipping in different colours.


 I gathered some simple bits from the few supplies I have beside the sofa .....


...... and even found the ticket to add after I had taken the photo above ......


....... and it all came together and into the journal quite quickly.
No real techniques at the moment - but I'm loving just having time to collage bits and pieces together.


I have to say the midori style booklet I made for these is filling up quite fast now.

Thanks for taking some time to pop by.

Another delightful addition to this wonderful journal Brenda, and it really has such a retro feel, both in colour and in the collage elements you have added. This is going to be such an amazing memory of the time spent on that sofa.... Another fabulous make!!

I do so love the background effects with the Oxides. Maybe being attached to your sofa Brenda has not been such a bad thing as you have got round to using up some of those bits and pieces that we all save! and save! and save! always intending to use, sure you know what I mean Lol! Happy crafty week, Angela xXx

Exceedingly cool collage with one of those awesome backgrounds! How come I can't make my Oxides look so good? Every single one of your elements work so perfectly together, and I would never have seen it if it were sitting in a pile on my desk--you make magic! Love that delicate die cut! Sending healing hugs!
