Combo du 20 fevrier. 'Cool' for Pandore

Today I have a lo for you that I made as an example for the current colour challenge over at Les Papiers de Pandore. I used the latest collection 'Lovely Birds' as well as the white  (now misted) background sheet from 'Promenons Nous' and the pink from 'En Attendent'.

I must confess this lo turned out a little 'messier' than I had planned but sometimes that's the way of things in the crafty world,...LOL! Some things can not be controlled :-)

 I actually had some fun with this one using all the mediums and masks. 
I even made a tiny rolled flower, which I haven't done in a long time.

The string framing my photo was white originally, but I poured some paint into my hand and rubbed the string in it to change the colour....-See, I told you I had fun...  Now my hands are all pink!

Almost all papers have been stitched to my page. I usually put a dash of glue in the middle to keep them in place,-but far from the edges so as not get my sewing machine all clogged up.

 The chipboard cogs/clock is from Imaginarium Designs and I gave it a lick of white paint and some blue ink before sticking it to my page.

I used lots of punches here from Martha Stewart and EK Success. 
I've wanted one of those notebook punches from EK Success for the longest time and now I have both the one making round holes and the one making square ones.

I'm happy you came by to have a look at my latest page and thanks so much for any comments you feel like leaving me. They are greatly appreciated!
