When I saw last week's sketch from Scrap Much? I was attracted by the diagonally split background. I still have some of Crate Paper's Random collection, and it includes the same peacock print in two colours so I decided to use them together. 

It's rather a bold print so I toned it down a little by spreading white acrylic paint on the page with the edge of an old credit card. I picked a few scraps from the same collection and photos of my sister and her husband after they completed a sponsored run in the Olympic Park for Sport Relief.

I chose RUN for the main part of my title and I used silver Thickers because there is a mirrored/metallic RUN sculpture in the Olympic Park (near the Copper Box Arena). The only link between the two is in my head, and anyone looking at my album probably won't spot the connection, but once I had that idea I couldn't turn away from it. I completed my title with KaiserCraft's new tiny alpha stickers, and they really are tiny.
