He's Behind You!

When Catherine was in panto - Jack and the Beanstalk, she was asked to play an extra role. That of the gorilla.  She had to wear a huge suit with gloves and mask. It had to be a very quick change so someone had to stand by and help her into and out of it (she was wearing another costume underneath), because she had to be back on stage a few minutes later too. She really enjoyed this role and had great fun, if a little warm!

I used some old Cosmo Cricket papers from my stash together with some brown Bazzill. I punched all round the edges with Linda's Martha Stewart punches. The swirls were cut with the Cricut. The blossoms were coloured with chalk inks and stickles, the centers are flat backed pearls and crystals in various browns and oranges. For the title I used American Craft's Thickers - grey velvet. I do like these self adhesive letters, but they don't stick well. I had to stick most of these letters down again with glue.
The layout was inspired by the work of Lynn Beirmann. I just love the way this talented scrapper uses black paper and card with her patterned papers.
I will take another, brighter picture when the proper August weather returns and change this one.


  1. Love this, colours better IRL.

  2. The black really *pops* on this page, the colours you have used are perfect ( as are the pics, doesn't Catherine look great) Gosh I bet she was cooking in it though.xxxx
