Upholding the law

The new challenge over at Every Inchie Monday has the theme “legal.” There has, as usual, been some inspired thinking and fabulous execution by my fellow players. My creativity seemingly disappeared at the same time as my blog did last week but, unfortunately, whilst my blog is back on line, the same can’t be said of my crafting mojo so I struggled with the theme this week:P1080433

I have chosen the scales of justice, a good old policeman’s helmet, Legally Blond and an umbrella. In case you’re wondering about the umbrella, it’s a nod to the logo of Legal and General.

I didn’t want to short change you so I am also sharing one of my scrappy ATCs. By scrappy, I mean using up some trash paper that has been created in the making of other projects.

P1080441

This was a fabulous piece of paper and I had a bit of a dilemma about which side to use. I should, of course, taken a copy! Actually, now I’ve said that out loud it may not be too late!!!!

P1080440

All I have added to the original piece is the stamped flowers, using a stamp by Stampotique and colouring the petals with white gel pen, and also the little bee which has been stamped and paper pieced. I was going to add some words but in the end decided I preferred it just as it is.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. You may think that your crafting mojo has taken a short holiday but it is not apparent from your inchies. Your little sketches made me laugh out loud, especially the L&G umbrella. They are an inspired collection of icons.

    Lovely ACT, the background looks fab, rather like a hot summers meadow.

    • Thank you – “Summer” was the word I had in mind for the ATC – you are a mind reader!!! xx (See the Inlinkz is all fine!)

  2. I love these. I think you hit it out of the park! I love all the directions you went to. Also I love the scrappy ATC the colors are beautiful

    • Thank you 🙂 I have to tell you I am so looking forward to seeing what you do next week – no pressure! 🙂 🙂

  3. Love the little scales of justice and the legally blond, cracked me up! Love the beautiful ATC, hard to believe it was scrap! ~Diane

  4. Awesome job Lisette!!! (I’m not familiar with L&G) But the others I’m quite aware of!! As always, a great representation of the word!! Have a great week! (Oh, by the way, I felt my mojo was out of whack too.. must be in the air!) :0) Share humanity

    • Thank you Annette. Must be the weather having an impact on mojo – or maybe we share biorhythms?!!! Still, we did it and lavender is very therapeutic 🙂

  5. Wonderfully clever ideas for those inchies. I have enough trouble coming up with one idea! I LOVE your flowers and bees composition. Sometimes words are just not necessary.

    • Thanks Jean. I think next week is going to be a toughie – I have a couple of ideas but lack the skill to execute them!!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
