things i love....

 The July challenge is up at ARTastic and this is the inspiration painting to use - included are the following criteria:
black and white photo of yourself, monocromatic - red/maroon, include a hat/glove in the LO!
And here is my LO that I created:
 I've used a series of self-portrait photo's and decided to share some things that I love, by making a journalling block, printed out on copy paper.  Pattern papers are from Crate paper and I've used red for the monocromatic colour.
Here are some close-up's:

 a crochet flower, chipboard frame, crate paper button collection
a vintage girl card, hand-made button, stamping with inks and paper lace doily

I enjoyed putting this one together - monocromatic is always fun and I love using red, so it was perfect for me.

Here's what I've used:
Papers: Crate paper collection, white cardstock
Accessories: Crochet flower, crate paper button collection, vintage girl button, chipboard frame, computer journalling, paper doily, Kaisercraft stamp, ink, white tag

For more details on this challenge and to see all the prizes and sponsors, be sure to visit the ARTastic blog.  There's also lots of gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team too.  We hope you will join us.

Hi there, firstly I want to apologise for not replying sooner, work has really thrown my routine, but I have to tell you, I have decided that enough is enough and I miss my scrapping and blogging, so today is the day to step it up, going to do a layout this arvo, have to work this morning. I love your layout for arTastic, gorgeous use of that chippy frame, and love the journalling strips and the photo of you is just beautiful. Melx
