Prima BAP

Hello Hello :) Well, it's saturday night here and I guess I should be doing something exciting and/or social, instead I am in my pj's shuffling scrappy stuff around my desk. And I have to admit quite happy doing so. Anyone else becoming a recluse with their scrap supplies?

So anyway, popping in to share a layout I have done for the April Prima BAP. Really loved this sketch, kind of grungy so it really jumped out at me...

So I brought some Mica flakes this week and was staring at them intently waiting for them to tell me what to do with them. When it occurred to me how cool they would look like little rust flakes falling from a rusty hinge.

Darling husband and hoarder of all things remotely blokey didn't have one after I trashed searched his shed. So...I drove an hour to our local refuse centre, spent another hour sifting through large piles of junk, covered head to toe in dirt and paid $2 for found rusty hinge, before driving the hour back home again.

When recounting my day to hubbie and the look on his face at the length I went to get this damn hinge for a layout...well I thought 'Unhinged' would make a perfect title!!
