woyww - LO with bits


I am always collecting bits of paper which are just too good to throw out.  Only a crafter would understand.   I  store it all a box for that "special project" that needs something.  The box is in the top left corner and you can see it is full.  I even separate the scraps into like minded scraps, hence the zip lock back with extra special scraps.  At this stage I am just playing around with the bits and will eventually look for a photo to fit the LO.   Normally I would start with a photo and then work on the LO to fit the photo.  Today is different and I have no explanation apart from woyww!

  1. Hi Sandra, That's looking VERY nice! Lovely colours. I'm sure you'll find a photo or something to go there.

  2. The kiddie images are stamps. Pretty cool, eh? And the "card" is actually a canvas, about 8x12, or a bit bigger, I think. Sort of like a cross between a card and a scrapbook page, I guess, but done on a canvas.

  13. This is lovely so far, even without a photo. We don't tend to keep scraps, but looking at your page, we may have to start.

  14. Love the scarps. I think we crafters must all have been squirrels or magpies in a former life, :). What would we do without our stash of bits?hugs from another member of Hoarders Anonymous, Shaz #107

  17. A lady the playing around is paying off..this looks fab...love the idea of separating scraps for separation purposes! More though, am impressed that you're working 'backwards' as it were for a LO...gotta be quite a bit easier, surely?

  19. Sometimes it is good to change it up and start from a different place. Things are looking good. I think we all have those boxes of extra special, too good to throw out bits. Like you said, only a crafter would understand.

  20. Is a LO with bits a bit like the orange juice that only I like?? I have the same problem throwing away fabric scraps..I chuck them all in a big bag and fish some out occasionally to make flower corsages etc etc!

  23. The layout is looking beautiful already. I have to steel myself to throw away even the smallest scrap so I can easily identify with you here. Hope you had a good WOYWW. Elizabeth x #112

  25. Oh, i love collecting bits of paper or small magazine clippings for such a purpose. I like flicking through my collection from timr to time, wondering when i'm going to get around to using certain pieces. They never get used the way i think they will! Fab colours and composition - keep up the good work! x

  28. It always pays to save scraps and papers. I have a huge pile of interesting things to paint and you never know when you are going to need it. Your LO is looking really good already. Love the cut out edge.
    Have a great week.
