Welcome to our monthly
Blog Hop to share with you
the artwork you can make with the monthly kit.
This month the kit is called Lock & Key.
I hope you have arrived here from Tricia's Blog
with her inspirational creativity. If you lose your way
you can always go back to the
with all the participants.
As I have been away this month to the US
for the Club Scrap Retreat in Wisconsin,
I did not have time to make some elaborate projects,
but with Club Scrap's beautiful paper
that is not a problem.
So I made this simple scrapbook page for
the weekly chronicles (as I have fallen behind).
With this page I do not follow any theme,
but week 42 is all about the being at the Retreat!

I did however come up with a little project.
This is inspired by something I noticed
in the Botanic Gardenshop that I visited
on my last day in Chicago.
It is a necklace made out of paper rolls.
I can do this, I thought and here is
I took 5 pieces of paper 2,5 x 2,5 inch,
bookbinding glue,a foam brush and
a brush with a handle that is not to thick
toroll the paper around.
Next you take one square of paper. First roll it a few
times around the handle of the brush you choose.
Add a little glue at the end and roll it tight and close.
Do this with all pieces of paper.
Take a needle or something sharp to
make a hole through the middle
of all the paper beads (not to thin).
Take some wire, make a loop in the midde of the wire first
and thread it through the paper beads. I then glued
the beads together. You can decorate it with some extra glass beads.
I use also a piece of the lace that came with the kit fordecoration.
Constructed the wire around the beads and added a key
at the bottom of the pendant.
I used a piece of leather to hang it from.
It came out pretty neat and it is fun to wear too.
I just tie it around my neck with a bow.
