Color me scrappy # 50.

This is the colour palette


The other criteria was texture eg burlap (hessian),paint etc.

Out came my Counterfeit Kit plus the blue paint and a few scraps.
I started with the ledger paper and stamped circle stars.
See this post for details on it.

I also dug out the hessian red indian outfit Mum made me years ago and I'm now using the hessian.


Today I finished off some hexagon shaped mini letters, so used the background as a mask for blue paint.
Next I matted my 2 photos on brown card then on hessian.
I've used brads in navy & white to hold it on the layout.
The eyelet from the top of the Graphic 45 letters wasn't wasted either. I threaded navy ribbon through it and used it as another embellishment.
The braid on the pennant was also from the Bo-bunny CK.
Now I will explain my title.....................
The car is an old Holden brand.
An old Holden becomes an 'olden in Australia.(Aussie slang). So when I saw this I said it is hold'n on okay/ "olden ok.  Hence my title.
