What The Librarian Reads


It's challenge time again over at A Little Bit Crafty and this month is to use my favourites things, dies. Yes our challenge is Die-ing for it.  One of our sponsors is Saturated Canary and the DT were lucky enough to choose an image to use. I chose What The Librarian Reads, such a fun image. I love her old fashioned hair and glasses which contrast with the young face, shapely body and choice of books. I decided to give her a serious brown cardigan and then show off that other side of her with red lipstick and a red skirt. The papers are Bo Bunny Weekend Market. I added a dictionary page, Tim Holtz film strip die and Marianne corner die. Lots of distressing, DI Vintage Photo and sanded Core'dinations for a vintage feel.
