This skyscraper LO started off as a challenge at my Crawley crop. It had to be 3 photos, monochrome and have some metal on it. I wasn't going to go for the obvious B&W monochrome, but these grey and black Bazzill sheets just looked so good! Sky Scraper is written in chipboard, Maya Road, I think. Sky is simply inked with a black ink pad. Scraper has been covered in cardstock, sanded and inked at the edges. IRL it does look a bit messy! Which isn't really the look that goes with the sleek modern skyscrapers, but never mind!
The design is a scraplift from an Australian Scrapbook magazine, but you would never guess, cos it's turned round and is very different! The bling is Heidi Swapp, boy it is gorgeous. The chipboard flowers are Lil Davis I think, and the metal centres are from natalie at the Crawley crop. Aren't they fab? The stitiching was inspired by Kirsty Wiseman's LO at the Scrappers Paradise Photography day. Oh and the swirls and flourishes are from sandra, who was showing off her cuttlebug, and I decided to try the flourishes, and then thought, wow they'd look good on my LO!!!
So that's how I decide how I do a LO. Very haphazard don't you think?
