Oops another long time has passed

Another batch of layouts.  I didn't realise that I had so many to put up.  
This layout used shades which I don't normally use and lots of paper pieces as background.  Although it took me ages to get the thrown together look I was after I was really pleased with the end result.


 I had a tag with a picture of a crocodile on it sitting on my desk for ages.  When I came to scrap this picture of a crocodile of children I realised that I had a perfect use for it - although I did have to enlarge it quite a bit.
I made the scales using layers of borders which I had cut out using my new cuttle bug.
 To make this more interesting I sewed seed beads onto some of the circles on the backing card and allowed them to overlap the main section.

I made the clock by putting a rub on onto acetate and then mounting it onto card using a black brad in the centre. 

 This layout was about a lesson where the children made tadpoles from painted finger prints so I made a tadpole border using the same technique.
For this layout celebrating some scrapbooks made by students I made an embellishment from techniques used in lace making.  It was a fun layout to do because the theme loaned itself to me throwing every embellishment I could think of at it.
 I had recieved a pack of paper the edge of which had been damaged in the post.  Although I had recived a repalcement I kept the origininal.  For this layout I tore the edge of the paper and used it as a centre mounted on another piece of card.  I cut away the card under the centre panel and used it to mount the photos on.
