Crafty play time.

Had a nice play this morning with some bits and pieces lying around my craft  drawers, needless to say that the intentions to tidy them just flew out the window.
I edged a page in my journal with a bit of random  stamping and  shaded with..........a light shading of Pickled Raspberry, now you can relax, also my beloved Vintage Photo distress ink.
I kept to these two colours throughout.

I machine stitched a home altered  paper and material layer together, before sticking out onto the page. The material flower was cut using the Tattered Florals , Alterations die, probably more than a year ago. We never like waste do we.
I glued some distress glitter to the fronds die cuts, you will guess the shade V.P.
More scraps of materials glued down, a metal pocket watch charm.
I stopped here as I need to remember that I have to be able to close my book.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
