G45 play time!

Howdy boys and girls,

I took advantage of a few days off this week by having a play with my long-hoarded G45 Typography paper pad. Yes, it was physically painful, but after I made the first cut, it became marginally easier, lol.

And at the same time as having lots of fun, I now have a couple more things to help me be organised, like this box, in which I've put a heap of broken jewellery from work, to use in altered art:

And of course, the inside had to be prettified too!

And finally a note-holder, in an attempt to stop the rampant scattering of note blocks and post-it notes that is happening on my desk...

The red and black is a colour scheme I don't work with very often, but I have to admit, I rather like it.

Right, play-time over... I must be getting myself off on errands.

Have a fantabulous day all!

I think it was worth cutting into those gorgeous papers to create these 2 stunning items! They are not colours I would often choose but they make a real statement and are great for the vintage style you do so well :-)
These are going to look so good on your desk.
Big hugs, Kat xx
