It's time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. The lovely and talented Cec is our hostess and she has chosen the theme "HIP TO BE SQUARE". She would like you to go retro and make a project influenced by the brighter colours and/or images and patterns of the hippie era of the late 1960's/early 1970's. Your project must either be square or include at least one square element. One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique!
I decided to go with the bright colours of the 60's and 70's since there's just not a thing I enjoy about those crazy patterns that were popular back then! Psychedelic does not look good on me, but the colours on the other hand...vibrant and beautiful!! My 'Bold Angel' had a field day with this one!! lol
The background was done with Ken Oliver Colour Bursts, the ribbon was coloured with Distress in pads and the handmade flowers were coloured with Distress ink sprays. The frames are from Spellbinders, the leaves and lattice dies are from Sizzix. The papers are from Maja Design, the twine is from May Arts.
All of the following products that I used can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique
Well, we're back to cold and rainy, just like that! I refuse to be locked in doors, so I put on my rain jacket, pulled up the hoodie and headed out! For my first picture I would like to quote a line from Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie...it goes a little something like this:
'ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER'...
I think I will sneak out and hang a decoration on this lonely tree this Christmas. Dare to be different I say!
If anyone can please tell me what type of tree that is?? Those droopy branches are really throwing me and I can't find it in any Ontario Tree listings, so I'm thinking it's not a native breed!
I've never seen a tree like this before. At first I thought it was covered with spider webs. Totally cool!
The rain doesn't stop my sweet sweet family from coming to visit. Mr Scruff is right at home under the overhang eating his breakfast. Dee Dee prefers to sit on the rail so she can keep her eye on the things. Doesn't stop the birds from coming either!
Thought I would wait a bit for my coffee shot on this day. There were some interesting clouds reflecting the morning light. So beautiful!
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.
