Some layouts just come together don’t they? This page was definitely one of those. The photograph is of the back of my car leading up to Halloween a couple of years ago. I bought this witch transfer (who I called her Winnie, and yes I did chat to her), and she used to wave her besom (the proper name for a witches’ broom) when I turned on the windscreen wipers. I loved seeing people smiling and pointing when we went past – it’s lovely to bring a bit of joy and surprise to people isn’t it?!
I didn’t actually use a sketch or a scrap lift for this one. I know right?! I’m fanning myself in shock. The cut file was another Go Go weekend freebie from Pear Tree cut files and coupled with the photo didn’t leave room for much else. The challenge was to use the quote so I wanted to keep it quite large but needed something else on the page.
I’d seen a few of these rolled paper strips on layouts around that time and it was a good way to use the bold striped paper in the candy cane colours. The only problem was that I was using a Crate Paper pad so the designs are one sided and I had to fix another contrasting piece to the roll!
I backed the cut file with the glorious Shimelle vellum because I wanted just to lift it slightly from the background but without too much colour. I added a few stickers, a Bramble Fox star, some of the negative stars from the cut file, and even added a very old My Mind’s Eye brad. Finally I popped a clear cobweb sticker in the top corner to finish off.
I miss the ole gal…
Stay safe and keeping smiling x
