Halloween Fair in Copenhagen, for Les Papiers de Pandore.

Just a short post today I am afraid.
I am writing on a mini PC that at the moment is behaving really well, but is not really supposed to mwork with my large photos etc. I am  very much looking forward to have this problem sorted....

I used the charming collection "Promenons Nous" for this layout.

I used my sewing machine to add paper frames to the edges and get a lot of texture.   I dipped a piece of muslin in strong coffe to get the right colour brown, and draped it underneath my photos.                               

I cut the leaves from the patterned papers and added some flowers on top. I cut the letters from the sheet of embellishments, which I find so useful and such great value for money

The letter stickers were sewn on top of the muslin. I like the texture added by the seam and how it looks in between the other embellishments.

The photos were taken in Copenhagen last year when we went to the Halloween exhibition. It looks so beautiful and all the girls loved it there.

 I really like he flower branches from Prima a lot.I have been hoarding this one and divided it into two pieces. I am saving one for later.

Just couple of more close ups. I am sorry you can't see this IRL because it was actually quite difficult to get a decent photograph......

I don't know what this post is going to look like ....,I hope it's ok. The letters keep sticking and sometimes I am thrown out completely.Ahh well,.... at least I posted something.....

I hope you are all enjoying your week end. Here in Sweden we are getting a short reminder of  what a glorious summers day can be like. We must enjoy it while we can.

Thanks for dropping by!!
