“Sentimental”
is the new challenge at FSC this fortnight.
I have chosen a sentimental journey for my piece,
however you can of course use a sentiment/sayings if you  like.
We have the wonderfully talented  Suzanne from Suzanne’s Papercrafting joining us as a GD
so please pop on over and check out her work and leave a little love.

My thoughts on this went back to the olden days in the country with many days at my nana’s house
 playing with cousins, 
collecting chook eggs, 
playing family cricket games in the back paddock
and the family feasts!
I am from a small country town where we made our own fun
and enjoyed the wide open spaces… 
– the whole town was our backyard!
It is a time long since gone, but the memories are treasures.

This piece is a collage of different elements from those days
and has been made to be touched, with lots of bits and pieces.
The main image is a Crafty Individual’s stamp
stamped in archival ink on specialty paper as I wanted to have a strong back and white image
with muted sepia tones and a little pop of colour added as a backdrop to represent the past.
This is vintage in style, though it is very different to how I would usually do it.
 I enjoyed the journey
 and hope that you will come along and play with us this fortnight.
The stampettes have once again come up with some great inspiration to tempt you into playing along…
and Flonz has a generous $20 voucher for the winner
along with the stampettes top pics, saturday spotlights 
and the occasional guest designer who plays along with us.
Enjoy!
