MEET CARROT.......AN ALTERED SPIRIT

Yesterday I went to a workshop taught by SARAH ANDERSON.......it was called "ADVANCED CARD TECHNIQUES"


I am not much of card maker these days so Sarah said why not apply the ideas to a journal page so that is what I did. I made one of my "cards" into a pocket for my journal by turning it side ways and sewing it in place. I also decorated the page itself with one of the ideas Sarah showed us.


Isn't this little character so cute.....oops I mean whimsical, I don't do cute!! He is CARROT by STAMPOTIQUE and is available from THE STAMP ATTIC

Having said that I don't do cards I did actually make just one during the workshop..........isn't that cloud of butterflies lovely? It is a cupcake wrapper from Hobbycraft.

Monica asks what is in the top corner..........it is stitching done with a sewing machine......very randomly partly because it was hard to get the journal under the machine!!
