I kinda even scrapped...

haha if you can call it that? I found this window frame with chicken wire in the hole for 12.00 at a craft bazaar last weekend, so i removed the chicken wire and then i smeared some pale green acrylic paint across it here and there as it was pretty much the color of the walls ( off white ) so, so far this is all that's done to it, just some Basic grey pp and some winter photos. Probably going to find an old old photo of one of Tim and mines first winters together photos ( pre parents ones you know ) :) I know i could add more and more and more to this and make it look like "real" scrapbooking on the wall, but so far I'm enjoying the simplicity of it...
This one the SU set "Its about time" is stamped on Sahara sand cardstock with Versafine smokey grey ink and then there is some Hero Arts dot circles in Nick Bantock Charcoal Grey over the top of that. the Rabbit is from Fishbone graphics and stamped in Versafine Vintage sepia and colored with markers. The mini brads are unknown, the handmade paper is from Provocraft, the brown velvet paper scrap is unknown, the stripe pp is from Cratepaper, The So Sorry is stamped with Palette Noir Black on the same Sahara sand then cut out with the Martha Stewart tag punch, it has a pop dot under it and some old style SU silver cord through the hole. This one is 6 inches Square in real life.
This one i messed it up putting the cross corner stitches on the main image and then tried to "fix" it by adding a zig-zag around all the edges...
which to my eye is way too much red thread, such is life. the Rubber Romance ( Melanie ) is stamped on white with black ink then colored with Markers, i paper pieced the bags from scraps of crate paper, the Red Ribbon is May Arts, the cream is offray, the Sentiment is from Hero Arts i added an little Savvy Stamps flower to it and rubbed some antique linen distress ink over the top of it all. ( it was too white) This one is 6 inches square also.
must have been the day for square cards... this one is an wish rak image of the Partygirlabella from Jaymerz Thanks Jamie! she's colored with prisma pencils, the printed papers are from an old slab pad papers from Joann's a few years ago. the silver paper ribbon is from an Big Lots spool last year, the sentiments from the su set Fancy flexible phrases and punched out with an punch bunch rectangle, the matted to an yellow sized marvy scallop rectangle. The silver cord is the old style su stuff ( it unravels when you cut it) and the purple ribbon is from May Arts. tfl.

All gorgeous! Love the shopping one best of all, it really jumps off the page. Your shadowing around the edges is really clever.
