L/O - Free...zing...Yum moment..

materials: MME Whirly Bird (background) and Lucky In Love, TH Tea-Dye distress ink,
 Memento Rich Cocoa, bling, staple, wood veneer embellishment, Pelikan Plaka matte paint

 stationery item ie.staple 

after: coloured embellishment with
Pelikan Plaka matte paint
before: wood embellishment

I struggle with making this layout mainly due to colour coordination with the patterned paper. The MME Lucky In Love kit set papers are mostly very 'busy' and I ended up pulling out stacks upon stacks of all my MME papers to find the coordinating colour. I think I spent almost two days for that.

I bought this wood embellishment from a cheap D.I.Y shop and love the simple design. I coloured it with Pelikan Plaka paint which I bought 3 or 4 years ago..(never know why I bought them in the first place besides the reason being they were on highly discounted price during warehouse sale..lol..!)

Picture of my son having his ice-cream which came free with some KFC meal set purchase. He enjoyed it till to the very last drop.

Done this layout based on sketch by Stuk?! Sketches challenge blog

I am participating in the following challenges:
  1. Stuck?! Sketches - 15 June'14 sketch
  2. Frosted Design Friday Challenge - Bingo ( I use the N column - wood veneers, office supply 'staple', word 'Free', distressing, patterned paper background)
