Does anyone out there remember the old Chatterbox "Scrapbooking Walls" lines? Maybe even have a sheet or two still lurking in their stash? If you don't remember them, each range was named after a different room and had co-ordinating wallpaper-style patterns. They were one of the first papers (that I'm aware of at any rate) to be double-sided, and the B-side was always a very subtle tone-on-tone check. Well I, for one, was not going to "waste" the beautiful A-side patterns in order to use the back!
Uh-oh, you know where we're going with this one, don't you? I've been steadily working through the old papers in the last year and a half, but when I was recently going through the last of my old papers to choose my November Counterfeit Kit, "Purple People Eater" there was one full sheet left. It's a purple-and-green paisley. Guess which side I ended up using?
First up, a page using this sketch from Scrapbook Supplies Online:
Now, I could have just used the whole sheet and called it good, but I really really wanted to have another go at using the paisley, so before I sewed this page together, I cut out the middle . . . ready for another try.
This next page isn't finished yet -
Still a bit of paper left . . . I wonder if I'll be able to use the A-side this time? But hang on, check out the awesome challenge from ColourQ this week:
inspired by a stamp at the same time?
I have always loved the expression on Angus's face in this photo as he watches an older girl blowing bubbles. The way he's looking at the golf club and ball is pretty funny too!
I don't often use quotes on my pages but this one I found was perfect for this page:
"There are no seven wonders in the eyes of a child. There are seven million". Walt Streightiff
What about you? Any "Scrapbooking Walls" lurking? Or other older supplies you're ready to get out and have a play with?
