Oh I'm behind on some of my promised arty things so given the beautiful weather we're having today (not) I've been crafting and am now working on a 2" square piece of workspace on my crafting desk (I kid you not) which means it's been a productive day.
I'm in a CJ on UK Scrappers at the moment which is the Rock In Peace Resurrected Circle Journal. Unfortunately we've had a CJ go missing in action and despite best endeavours it hasn't re-emerged so some girls are re-doing their entry for it, others (like me) are having a first go at it, the CJ that has gone missing is based on colours.
First of all I spent far too long 'thinking' about it, whilst everyone else was logical and gave a big shout out on the forum of which colour they were going to do (not me I was too busy thinking), by the time my list came to fruition most of the colours had been taken and with a request not to repeat colours if at all possible I was back to the drawing board, I spent all morning (all morning I repeat all morning), scanning CD's trawling through lyrics websites all to no avail, then said 11 year old said opt for a specific colour in the search engine and see what it throws up - next minute I'm on You Tube watching Goldfinger's version of 99 Red Balloons and the plan comes together.
Then I decided that the page would need 99 balloons (I kid you not) and several hours and rather sore fingers later it's done. Now some of the balloons are covered with the hand piccie, but I know on the front of this (including the spine) are exactly 99 balloons. Had much fun putting this together hope Clare likes it!
The finished page will go into a CD wallet and then the spine (on the left hand side) will be attached and used to put it into the remade book.
