No Waste Here

Well anyone who has attended any of my classes will know that I am someone who hates waste! you know like cutting up a whole sheet of paper for 1 sq inch.... I will find something else instead and just make do.

This Layout has been produced as a DT take on the Challenge Heaven's Cyber Crop this weekend 17- 19th June  and the theme is Scrap a Sleepy Photo using Black Cardstock as a base.   
Well here is my sleepy photo, my 3 monkeys taking full advantage of a thunderstorm, they wont sleep in there own beds if its thundering, move over mum and dad we are moving in! grrrr
So I used My Minds Eye Paper and embellies, with and RW Laser Cuts Title ( I cut the moon off that was on it and added and S as it is 'we' not 'I' !) , I used every piece of the patterned paper, I cut a border with a Fiskers Border Punch and even used the left over bits and pieces in the bottom right (the spotty bit) and also the Top right above the banners. 
The Black material circles, had there edges singed to melt them a little (be careful when doing this) and then they were dusted with Diamond Dust to give that sugary look ! :) 

The background was created with Glimmer Glam in B Positive, and blown around with a straw to make it look like it had been spilt, then a little Iridescent gold Glimmer Mist blown around in the same way to to finish it all off.   Oh and almost forgot I painted the chippy title with Golden Goddess Glimmer Glam

 Oh and I mustn't forget the stitching round the edge, thanks again Sewing Genie !  :)
