Witch Kraft?

Sunday, August 24, 2014

What? I thought she meant, "Which Craft..."

This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Witch Kraft. It's never too early to celebrate the fun of Halloween with everyone's favorite Kraft brown paper. Or will you interpret the challenge differently? I did! I combined several different crafts and interests into one project. Which Craft? Well, take a look!
I utilized stamping, scrapbooking, hand-sewing and my love of vintage photos in this layout. I adore this endearing old photo. It's an image of a wake from a boat. This is an original vintage photo that was taken during an era when camera film was expensive and every click of the shutter was risky. Whoever took this picture must've been feeling unusually free and creative and wanted to remember that moment. The Glitz Designs embellishment states "I am the Master of my Fate and the Captain of My Soul." Perfect sentiment! I highlighted it by cutting a doily using a punch with the Martha Stewart circle edge punch starter set.
Translucent grunge circles were created by stamping and embossing on vellum before being sewn to the paper.

And the bee is cut and embossed with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and folder.
Now it's your turn!

  3. Once again you have put together seemingly unrelated elements in a stunning and completely original way! And as always, it's a joy to read through the story behind the project. I totally thought the photo was of a road or a field with tire tread, so that was a neat surprise to find out it was water. Great tie-in with the sentiment (the font of which I adore)!!
