Manuscripts

the theme this week at Take a Word  is to use a manuscript in your creation.
I have used a page out of an old plant bible we have and overlaid that with a scan of a felted piece I made last year .
Da Vinci brush is by 500ml- alphabets by Vicki Stegall- Carla Gibson-Maya de Groot- Merkeley Designs: all from Oscraps

Ellen - I love the exotic arch shape filled with interesting texts and great and colorful alphabet pieces which is a fantastic touch. Perfection!!

PS - Needless to say I have forwarded your funny picture to friends around the world so you should be able to hear the echoes of their laughter! Not only funny but oh so true.
