Yarn bombing

Last year I signed up to do Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party, but didn't have time to join in there and then, so I have saved all the prompts to do at my leisure.

The first prompt was to use paper strips, a great way to use up scraps.  I was also inspired by one of the layouts used in this Glitter Girl Adventure on using up your scraps.

Whilst in Iceland last year, we had some free time to wander around Reykjavik and we came across this tree that had been covered in pieces of knitting - no one that we spoke to had a clue what it was all about so I had to wait until I got home to google it and then I found out all about yarn bombing.

The patterned papers are mainly Bo Bunny scraps left over from one of my monthly classes and the orange spotted paper is American Crafts and leftover from a retreat class.  I used a mixture of AC Thickers and stickers for my title.  The butterflies are an EK Success punch.


  1. Wow great trees! Love the papers, it all ties in with the photos perfectly xx

  2. Wow Karen! Those trees are just how you matched the papers ( recognise them from a summer kit :) ) xx

  3. Fabulous layout Karen those strips work perfectly with the pics.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.

Karen xx
