Cherish Our Friendship

Another project using the background papers I made last week during craft-therapy-- I'm trying to use up the stack of backgrounds I have created/accumulated/hoarded!


  • The background panel is Cosmo Cricket watercolor resist paper colored with Color Bursts in Sepia, Orchid, Fuchsia, and Merlot
  • Century-old sheet music
  • Circle die-cut (die from Autumn, thanks!) From some leftover watercolor paper-- the ink on this is Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals
  • Circle die mounted atop a "nest" of mixed coordinating threads
  • Vintage lick-and-stick stars
  • Tim's paper doll dancer (I love this girl)
  • Tim's Small Talk stickers.  I made lists inside the covers of this set of the nouns, verbs, and adjectives available so I can quickly come up with phrases!  I am such a dork.  
I'll proudly share this at the following challenges:
