'the life of a textile and surface pattern designer'

Those that don’t believe in the magic will never find it…

…and this is the layout for one little boy who searches and finds a little of that magic day in, day out.

I created this layout based on the criteria for the January Week 2 Team Challenge on UKScrappers. For this challenge, we had to ensure we used ‘Something New’, ‘Something Old’ and ‘Bling’. My ‘Something Old’ was the doilie, lace, sizzix die (heart frame), music paper, patterned paper and letter stamps. My ‘Something New’ was the technique I used to create my organza flower. Although I have admired these flowers for a long time I have never actually dug out a candle and used this technique myself…but I love the flower I created and will certainly be making many more.

I fulfilled the ‘Bling’ element by putting diamantes in the centre of the flower and by adding diamante accents to the hearts.
