authentic (obviously!)

I love to document the weird and wonderful in my scrapbooking... well this fits in to that category!  My Mum was given some French onions for her birthday from friends who had been in France for a show.  These particular onions are legendary, and they did taste better than 'normal' ones!

I have noticed that my layouts either feature sequins or enamel dots.  I had not consciously kept them apart but that is how it seems.  Even though I class them both as final finishing touches there is no reason they cannot be used together - so I did!  I also hand dyed a piece of lace from Crafty Ribbons to mimic the tricolore (French flag).

Continuing on with the French theme I strung some of the gorgeous 10mm Moonshine Delight sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps on blue, white and red threads.  I layered them over some giant scalloped glitter washi tape. 

The gold washi on its own was too much for me so I also included the white paper backing the washi comes on.  Incidentally the white scallop gave me the perfect journalling spot.

Because the white backing was non-stick (so it released the washi) it would not stick with any of the glues I tried!  In the end I ran it through my sewing machine to anchor it down.  I love to take something that I would have thrown away and use it in my crafting - do you ever do this?

Thanks for stopping by!
