create art

 Happy Monday - hope you've all had a great weekend.  I managed to squeeze in some 'scrappin' time which is always a good thing.
This LO is for the 123 Challenge - use brown, include the word create and use tape - decorative/masking.
I've smeared some white paint with scumble gel onto the base cardstock to add just a little something to the background. 
....... strips of pattern paper, decorative tape and a shipping tag........
Here are some close-up's:
 yep, another crochet flower - chocolate and cream with a brad to the centre.
Shipping tag - stamped background, doily trip, vintage bookprint doily and journalling.
The vintage bookprint doilies are listed in my etsy shop - I have large and mini ones.
 A corrugated frame over the photo and a Maya Road wooden button.
Buttons from Crate Paper collections, decorative tape, rub-on's and American craft letter stickers.

And I've finished off the page with some random lines of stitching from my sewing machine.

..... some of my favourites at the moment - dressing up shipping tags, using texture stamps by Kaisercrafts, rub-on's, crochet flowers and paper doilies.......

Here's what I've used:
Paper: Brown cardstock, lined notebook paper, kraft cardstock
Accessories: shipping tag, crochet flower, corrugated frame, Maya Road buttons, Crate Paper button collections, decorative tape, American Craft letter stickers, stitching, lace trims & vintage doilies, computer journalling, rub-on's, twine.
(Most of my scrapbooking supplies are sourced from Handmade by Suzanne)

I just love brown in LOs and you have used it perfectly. I love the smaller pic framed.
