Here I am sharing another project I have made for The Mad Scrapper Blog . This time it is a layout of a recent visit to Oxford.
We have been enjoying binge watching Endeavour (one of my favourite shows which I can easily watch time and time again!) on the TV. As my son was away we decided to take a drive out there. Not been for sometime and we were pleasantly surprised by the new shopping centre that had sprung up but we were there for a nice walk along the river taking in the sites and spires of the colleges which is what you see in the photo.
For this layout I have used Hike-more-boscage and Anywhere-Journal-Cards but the blue side. Both papers are by 49andMarket.
But don't worry I gutted the centre out of it before adding the cut down to 11inch Boscage to it. I also inked the edges of everything using Vintage Photo and distressed them too. Then I took Hike-more-Journal-cards and made a little cluster for the top left area.
I recently purchased an EK punch which gives that notebook style edge and you can see it in action here on the notes piece and a little bit of blue.
The photo was matted on to a essentials-4x6-frame-set piece and then onto hessian which was then lifted by a piece of cardboard underneath and then stuck down.
Then I took lots and lots of 49and Market Flowers and leaves and made 2 clusters to go at the top and bottom right of the photo.
Here is a list of the flowers I used: Royal-Spray-Ocean Jade,  Royal Posies-Ocean JadeEnchanted-Petals-ParchmentMini-flowers-Cream  I also added a big daisy from my stash along with a jade wax thread bow. You can also see a little touch of cream lace added at the bottom of the page and to the right side of the photo.
On this next photo you can see the little cluster I made with the journal page along with 1 of the 3 moths/butterfly I stamped out using Mowed lawn and Vintage Photo distress inks, cutting them out and adding them with foam pads. The bicycle had to be added because there were sooo many around us not only on the roads but along the river too.
You can see I added my journaling to the strip and tucked an off cut with the underside showing. I dotted about some newly acquired sequins from Spiegelmom along with gems by Kaisercraft  mine are yellow/green but there are others in store
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I have given you a little inspiration for use of these fabulous papers. The full selection along with rub-ons, stamps and stickers can be found in store or online at
