The Price of Beauty

Hi everyone, sorry for the absence. I would like to say it is because I have been super busy doing fun things but infact all I have done is a round of dental appointments and lost my scrappy mojo.
Never fear, it is back and I am up today with a layout I made for the Scrap Friends Sketch Challenge #6 which looks like this:

I wanted to grunge the page up a little to match the photo (walking around in my stockinged feet! What would my grandmother of said?) so I cracked open the gesso and distressed the edges of my paper with a nail file. 

 My poor sore feet, those heels kill me but I love them so!

One part of the sketch I really liked was the thread element so I knew I wanted to include that in my finished layout the challenge was to make it happen. So I used a couple of dots of glossy accents and then held the thread in place with some wood veneer stars.

Thanks so much for stoping by, hope you all have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Gorgeous page, I love the grunged up look, and the thread looks really great! x

  2. What a fun and humorous page! I have shoes like that and the price we pay...sometimes I question?! LOL!! Great design :)

  3. I love the color combo on this LO!

  4. Hope your mojo comes back to stay! Fun page. Love the dark background and the fun topic. What we women do for fashion....sigh. I ruined my feet and can't wear heels anymore but I sure looked cute in my 20's!

  5. Fun page!!! love the photo - that is one reason I don´t do killer heels :D... just heels I can cope with ..heheee

    thanks so much for joining the fun with us at ScrapFriends!
