Yarn bombing in Cadiz

Shimelle's third video in 'Return to the Collection' used one photo......I rarely use one photo on a page....especially in a vacation album where I have so many photos to scrap!!
But I had 2 photos that go together [though not unless you know the story!]....and could both be cut down.....so I decided to put them together almost like one photo.
The photo is 'high central' with a border underneath.....Shimelle made her own embellishment for the centre of the border......I decided to use mine for journaling....and the title and embellishment come out from the top left and bottom right of the photo.
I bought the chevron punch awhile ago from Stampin Up.....why has it just been sitting in a box??.....I love it.....and all the little arrow offcuts are brilliant as well......I can see me using this loads.
And the story.....we sat down for a coffee in a pretty square in central Cadiz.......as we were working out how to actually drink the coffee.......why do they put a boiling drink in a glass with no handle [is it just us that finds that totally weird]....I finished admiring the lycra clad policemen on bikes.......and glanced around and saw the yarn bombing on a lamp post.....somehow it was just completely unexpected......I loved it.
I think I'm just about getting used to having almost no plain card on a layout as well!!

Have a great weekend, Jacky

I like this design with everything flowing diagonal across the page. I've done one similar layout but am inspired to try it again after seeing yours.

I have that SU punch, too, and love how you can use the border & the little pieces.

I have that punch but have yet to try it... time to dust it off me thinks :)
Lovely page & great story behind it Jacky x

Great use of embellishments. This seems very different from a typical Jacky page, but I love it. This class seems to be really inspiring for you.

Such a fun story and a great layout to go with it. Funny about them serving a super hot drink in a glass with no handle. ??? You almost needed a yarn bombing around the glass!

Yarn bombing? I've not heard of that before, but that lamp post looks very intriguing!

I love this layout, the colours all work so well together! (I might have to see if I can get that punch here!)

Yarn bombing is very popular here, in fact the town where Chloe lives has an annual festival dedicated to yarn bombing!

That does look difficult to drink I agree. I've never seen yarn bombing but would be so excited if I did. I love anything like that!

Karen said...

I read about yarn bombing just last week for the first time, and was amazed. Love that you really saw some! That chevron punch is great. I can think of lots of uses for that!

What is yarn bombing? I've never heard of that. The colors in your page go perfectly with it!

Diane said...

Gorgeous layout Jacky! I love the pops of color that pick up on what is in the photos! :)

Great layout, i love the patterns and colors and the arrow. They yarn bombed a couple of blocks on a downtown street a few weeks ago. I need to get down there before it's removed next week.

Karen said...

What a lovely surprise and you have recorded it perfectly on this fab page.

Gorgeous layout Jacky. I know what you mean about hot drinks and glass, a definite no no. Love the yarn bombing, it always amazes me!!

Becky said...

Great layout and story to go with it. That chevron punch is great!

Your background paper is a great match for that yarn bombing - first time I have heard this term!
