I’ve been working on my monthly project life photos but the thought of stopping scrapbooking has been on the back of my mind. One half of me thinks it would be nice to clear out all my stash. Maybe start a new hobby that takes up less space yet the other half of me still can’t bear to stop. The creative process is what I enjoy the most. So after dragging my feet for the longest time, I printed out the photos, grabbed some supplies and dived in.
This is the layout that emerged. A little too clean and simple but good enough to start
Still love those enamel dots:
and lots of stickers:
Dusting off my table and back to more fun stuff.
It melted my heart to watch this scene in the photo. my little one going all soft for Snow White at Disneyland. Lots of pink for the page to bring out the softness and the Dear Lizzy white thickers are the prefect match.
Here is a close up of the cluster at the corner.
Love the memories of our last holiday.
That’s all for today. Do drop by again,
Sorry for the silence. It has been a busy week and I didn’t have time to sit down and post anything. Anyway I’m back and here is a layout with a photo that really touched my heart. My two boys sharing an umbrella in the rain. Usually they would be fighting with one another but that they were perfectly happy to be together. The “You make me Smile” stamp by Technique Tuesday was just perfect for my page.
I used a mix of blue and orange mist on this page. The map washi tape was the perfect base and matched the black and white photo. The Maya Road chipboard camera was really cute and I painted it over with paint and added glossy accent and topped it with a cream colored button.
That’s all for now. Bye,
Played about with gesso, masks and mist this round and created this page. I like the honeycomb effect and to further enhance the effect, I stamped text all over the white honeycomb prints.
Here’s a close up of the honeycomb and prints.
I had fun using these film strips given to me by a friend. Reminds me of the negatives we use to get when the films were developed. Just so retro.
Tag was from Studio Calico and the flower were fancy cut from patterned paper.
Of course I had to sneak in a few washi tapes onto the layout. I know I’m addicted to them.
That’s all for today. Do drop by again,
Easter is almost here and I was just wondering what to do with my growing stash of washi tapes when I found foam eggs at the local art supplies store. All you need to do is pick two or three matching tapes in your stash and cut them into little triangular pieces.
Next pick up one piece of tape and place it anywhere on your foam egg. Pick up another and stick than next to the first piece. Keep going until the entire egg has been covered. Go with the flow and don’t worry about aligning the tapes !! I left a small gap between each piece of tape but you can do whatever you fancy.
Notice that I sometimes overlap part of the tape. I’m ok with that as it just gives it more character. Trying to align the tiny pieces will of course drive me up the wall so I closed my eyes to any errors.
I really love the finally effect of my Mosaic egg. I have one more egg left so I might just try a different pattern. Any suggests ?Cheers,
Here is a messy, fun layout I did recently. It’s a 5 year old inspired page. He’s so fun of ideas and a real non-conformist. With that in mind, I dripped my selected bottles of mist all over the paper and then tapped the paper so the puddles of mist dripped down and made little lines.
Can I just say the results are stunning enough to be considered art? It just speaks of freedom and fun. Notice the tag under the photo ? It was just a plain white tag that I used to pick up leftover mist. Another surprise and went really well.
Here’s a side view of the layering.
Lots of the items here were actually purchased with Project Life in mind but I just couldn’t resist using them for my layouts. Sometimes letting go and not having a plan is a good way to be inspired.
