Whatever Wednesday 3-2-2011

Hello, all! I recently was inspired by the Twisted Sketches sketch #089 and the twist "pins." I know that many would think of adding decorative hat pins but I immediately thought safety pins and that made me think about how I used to wear saftey pins on my clothes! lol! I had a punky goth phase a while back (a long while back!).
Twisted Sketch #089. The twist was "pins."

Endless Love layout. When I saw that the twist was pins, I automatically thought of safety pins and when they were a regular accessory for my clothes. I found these two pictures of me in my punkier days and I saw that they were of me and my two best friends; my husband and my BFF. I went with a punky theme and used Endless Love for the (Paper) Trailmakers Endless Love challenge. I thought it was perfect because I have an endless love for the both of them. I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to make a criss cross pattern around the die cut along with faux stitches drawn with an poaque pen. I set eyelets at the bottom of the larger picture so I could lace some ribbon through and hang some safety pins from it. I used tulle, a screw brad, and TH gear to make a flower and 

Endless Love Close Up 1. I used my Cricut to cut out some of the title and the "love" part is from the Immortal Love chipboard collection. I also used Cherry Ice Smooch to splatter some red in the background.
