Back to Normal. Whatever that is!
G'day from a Very Wet Week here.
That would not be as bad as the snow I hear some of y'all
are getting in the USA. Boo! To that;)
Still, personally, I prefer wet to hot any day.
This was the view from our front window. It DOES look like a painting, eh??!!
I'd done the bg ages ago.... didn't take much to add a few layers.
I'm pretty pleased at managing to pop BOTH colour and a Black & White
photo on the same page;)
I thought I'd write the family's names ON the photo. That made it easier!
Just felt like creating a cluster for no other reason than I could.
That is washi tape underneath, saying 'make today amazing',
from Happy Mail. ADORE it - no idea
what sort it is!
Ripped a few edges & used my fountain pen for the minimal journaling...
I've been hitting my stride. Went to scrap with Mum & her
GF who was down visiting from QLD for the week.
Took 4 LOs to do. And did 'em.
But I'll only show you two here:)
I am not fantastic at using frames, but thought I'd give it a shot here!
Having fun using tiny bits of layers showing underneath the photos...
The little sayings in the frames come from an Amy Tangerine 6x6 pad, I think....
they worked, so I went with them!
And I am seriously IN LOVE with those COPPER alphas.... mwah!!!!
Then I 'cleared my table'. Do you do that at times?
I find I have Piles that accumulate 'cos I don't want to put the bits
away, otherwise I'll forget about them. I had this pile
of Paris stuff. Some vintage, some serviettes [too nice to wipe
my face on!!!]...you get the picture.
This is what I did:
1 Pulled the layers off the serviette - leaving JUST the image layer.
2 Using my glue stick, stuck this layer on some white card. Smoothed it out,
then trimmed the edges so it was 'square'.
3 Got out the Distress ink & sponged over it cos all the other embellies
were 'vintage' & the white bg looked 'wrong':
Then I added some Distress ink to the edges:
Yes, this is a different card; made two!
4 Added embellies. The bottom one was cut in 1/2 so it could be
used on both cards!
Made them 'same-same' but different...
The butterfly is a die cut & the hexagon banner is packaging...
And I didn't mind using slightly rusted flair. I think it fitted the cards...
Please note use of BRADS!!!
THEN I had a pile of hearts I'd cut out of a Kleenex tissue box,
& some other bits....so I made these little embellies:
Had a BALL. Mostly, these will be for Happy Mail.
And there y'go. That's what I've been up to!
I'm very happy to be feeling better and more up for some scrapping, I must say!
Here's to a happy weekend, wherever you, and regardless of the weather:)
Take care & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
