A little bit of scraplifting

It's been a while and I've been spending the summer watering the newly flowers, swimming in the pool and organizing my creative space (what a big mess in a tiny room it is).
Today I decided to do a little scraplifting.
I chose this page from the pencil lines blog
I was inspired by the photo subject and the "bull's eye"  title as well as the flag border that I have seen popping up all over the place lately.
Here's my take on that page.

Remember the Coluzzle?  With all the great cutting machines out there, the coluzzle is so old school but I still like it for a quick basic shape. My blade was rather dull and left the edges kind of rough which were even more obvious because of the white core of the paper I used, but I really like the look of it for this page.

Another thing I did on this page was create the two toned string and orange flag banner.  I love the look of the red and white baker's twine from Papertrey Ink but I didn't have any and I needed it now! So I took some waxed linen thread in white and twisted it up with some red floss and voila! Not perfect, but not bad in a pinch.  The flags I just cut by hand from scraps of paper, the put epoxy letter stickers on top.
