KRAFT + - TASSEL TIME!!

Hello there,
on this Wednesday, another week half way through.. I hope you are having a great week!

The layout I would like to share with you is created for this months challenge over at KRAFT +  and it is...
to use Kraft as the base and some tassels..  humm I didnt have any tassels, so I watched a few you tube videos and thought I would have a crack at making my own.. Well the first one was very malnourished, so the next few I made a lot fatter and I have used two of those on my layout as well as then remembering I had a tassel die which I have used as well... I made my tassels out of crochet cotton.

some closer views..
The tassel die..
My hand made tassels..

Yes my second child turned 29 a couple of weeks ago... we are all getting older!!!  I have used old papers, some stencilling, some chipboard painted with black gesso and flowers.. Thanks again to KRAFT + for another great challenge, now that I know how to made tassels I just might use them on my work again some time!!

Thanks so much for dropping on by, and thank you for your comments which I do love to read..

  8. Undernourished you say? I almost splattered my mouth full of tea all over the computer. Droll - very droll! Such a clever page with your trademark layering at attention to detail. Love the pops of black against the florals.

  9. Hahaaaa! That tassle or two sure WERE worth the hassle! They look gorgeous!!! And lovely and fulsome. That black looks great against the pink and kraft colours and your girls really are the prettiest in that land! And at least you found the tassle die BEFORE you finished the challenge. YAY! To that!!! Thanks for joining us at K+!!!
