In my July university holidays Debbi Weiss and I got together to do a project. We always try and work on one project each holiday. This time it was Debbi's turn to come up with an idea. She suggested making a Chipboard Mosaic using heavy weight chipboard cut into 6cm x 6cm squares which we covered with paper, embellished with photos and other little embellishments. Digging out from our stash of secret collection of vitage fabrics, buttons, laces etc that I have been saving for a while. I also found an old brass penny from 1952 (long before I was born), which I included. It was easy to come up with my theme, as my father had recently given me a selection of old black and white photos from my childhood. I couldn't resist putting a die cut from Tim Holtz range. I covered chipboard with adhesive foil and then cut out the birdcage. Most of the papers I used is from 7 gypsies range. It took us about 2 weeks to make, and we had a lot of fun doing it. It is kind of sad looking back wondering where all the years have gone, but I guess that is life......so they say.
Holiday is over and I will be back for semester 2 next monday! Looking forward to our next project in our next holidays.
