First I found some elements in my Newsprint designer paper to create a background, sponged it with Bravo Burgundy ink and stamped vertical lines on the bottom right and some of the abstract diamond pattern from Plane and Simple. Another strip of the paper lies across the middle of the background featuring a guy on a printing press who caught my eye - surely he isn't wearing a dress...?! I stamped more images from my beloved Plane and Simple set to layer over the background and cut out tabs of print with my decorative label punch.
My favourite thing in the design is the plane layered onto this sort of ticket I made. I might make another of these and use it on a CAS card. (Yes - I'm a CAS girl at heart!)
I liked the compasses too and thought they'd work nicely as a group - they're surprisingly easy to cut out if you use a small circle punch in the top bit, so no need to worry about my eyesight! This photo also gives you a close-up of the frock-wearing printer...
If you love Plane and Simple as much as I do, don't let it slip through your fingers! It's only available until the end of this month and then it'll be gone forever, and the same goes for the amazingly versatile Newsprint designer paper.

I'm afraid it's all gone horribly wrong on reorganising my craft square metre... I bought a large shelving unit from dear old Ikea which I was going to use with a smaller desk but it looked appalling! So I've brought my old (lovely) desk back and am now operating out of boxes and am stuck with a large shelving unit I don't want and that doesn't fit anywhere and my husband is Not Pleased! I can't bear living in chaos - my daughter says I'm obsessed with tidiness and tells me she daren't ever say she's bored because once, when she did, I set her to work clearing out her sock drawer!
I hope you've enjoyed your visit here today. I have loads to show you this week so do come back again soon.
