Thursday, March 26, 2015 we keep them???

Hi there again....
Twice in a day!! Yes I thought I should write this post, while everything is fresh on my mind...
At this stage you all know that I am busy with the Paper Issues On Line Crop, and I have been frantically scrapping.
Well over the week-end I opened a drawer of my Alex unit, and all of these paper strips popped out at me!! Yes, yes I keep every bit of pattern paper...we pay top  $ for paper here in Greece...shipping alone costs an arm and a leg!
I decided there and then that I would HAVE to challenge myself to use them for Danielle's Paper Pattern Play.....I left them aside and let idea stew for a couple of days...and yesterday the plan came together...

So I lightly stuck the strips onto will be posted below.. I machine stitched randomly...found a print of one of my paintings on my desk....and the photo was lying there too...I was keeping it aside for one of my Life Book 2014 lessons.
So, I decided to incorporate all of the goodies...that is how I to gather things off of my desk...I guess that is why I have a messy desk.

Anyway I gessoed the papers, dried them well and added color with a GaranD'Ache Neocolor,'YellowGreen' and some mist...then I masked the little crosses with a Grape Gelatto....
Added lace, my love...home-made flowers and some rub-ons as well as some embossed watercolor paper....and Voila.
Here are the videos.

That's all Zeffy
