Kraft+ May Challenge.

I'm again inspired by Kraft+ to enter their current challenge. Many years ago I brought a scanner to scan the old family slides so I could keep a copy of them safe. It was so much fun reminiscing of our life growing up. I printed some of them off and hadn't found the right time to scrap them. As soon as I saw the Kraft+ mood board it reminded of the era that I grew up in, so here is my take on it.

Kraft+  May Challenge.

The items I used included:
  • Kraft paper 12" x 12"
  • Monte Marte 'Impasto' medium to seal page.
  • StazOn Ink 'Jet Black'
  • White Gesso to soften the edges of the paper and washi tape
  • Dylusions Ink; 'Black Marble' and 'White Linen' for ink splatting.
  • Cork love hearts
  • Washi Tape
  • Pack of bright beads
  • Jewelery bead and leather strapping
  • Jute strap and string.
  • Old wall from off my walls after renovating our first home in the 90's
  • Funky Flairs' Combi Van'
  • 'good times' 2Crafty chipboard
  • Indigo blue stamps 'Ink Splats'
  • Sharpie fine pen for border and around love hearts
  • Black Cotton 
 Here are some close ups for you to look at.

Thanks for coming over to see my entry to this months Kraft+ Challenge if you have any questions on how I have done any parts of my page please feel free to leave me a comment. See you next time.
