You and Me

A long time ago, I hated yellow. I couldn;t work with it at all.
I never wore it, it just wasn't a color i could get used to. NOW I don't think I can even do a LO that I don't put a splash of yellow on. Yellow alphas on teal, orange, blue and white especially.
I just LOVE it in small doses. Most of the time. Then I saw this LO by the oh-so-talented Melinda Spinks (this girl REALLY knows how to kick it up to the next level!) and was immediately inspired to do a yellow LO of my own. I pulled out my trusty 4x6 scrap pile - seriously - it makes mixing colors & patterns SO MUCH EASIER). I started out with my misted kraft cardstock. I have had this & mask from STudio Calico for months and didn't play with it even once. I was afraid it might go unused and then I made my misted flashcards, noticing that when the walnut antiquing spray (Tsukineko) was applied to kraft, it gave a tone on tone detail and started misting everything I could find :) I then pierced holes along the perimeter of the symbol and handstictched the outside border of it. Nothingearth shattering here. Just scrappy goodness ;)

Thanks for stopping by! HUGS & Happy Surfing!

Did you use sew easy for the stitches or did you use a machine? I must say I just love your pages.
