DCM little Extra - Faux



The challenge was to use "fake" items on our cards.

Faux, being my favourite thing in the absence of real ones,

I still didn't find it easy. Sure making faux buttons, ribbon & photo turns was easy. It was putting them together I had the problem with.

My card mojo is still straining toward the vintage look & I didn't find vintage faux easy to create!! I have got the layouts I planned completed.

I'm all signed up for Shimelle's class, "A Thousand Words" starting 30th July. I only really have my CJ entry & signing in pages to create & I have completed my goals from my AJ card. Then I look forward to all my team mates' CJ's coming my way. We exchange the books in February at our retreat in York. Something to really look forward to.

Beautiful card, Paula. This is one of my favorite color palettes -- don't know why I don't use it more often. But now I'm inspired to do so....

Hi Paula - I'm hardly finding time to trawl through the blogs and haven't visited yours for a bit. Must try and catch up on everyone.

I love your 'faux' card. those colours are my favourites and I like your habby card even better. I can see why you like vintage - you are so good at it :-)

Take care
