Living Art

This was a fun lyout to do.  I painted the background using water colours and acrylics and then hand drew and painted my title.
My embellishments were old computer parts, video tape, metal curtain rings, buttons and a wire hoop.
I used my trusted old shopping bag to back my turned down corner.

99.5 years apart

When I saw the Scrap 365 October Shake It Up Challenge I realised that this was the perfect photo for it.  My 6 month old niece and 100 year old great aunt.  Sorry about the blob on my nieces face but my brother doesn't want her photo on line.
For my journalling I used the back of the group of tags attached to the bottom of the LO.
Having to use a ticket stumped me as I didn't have any.  However I made this one using the bottom edge of one of my tag stamps and punching holes along the edge.  For my wood grain I used a small wooden heart which I lightly smeared with paint.  I haven't taken a close up but I stitched the crochet strip under the photo onto the LO.


I have finally got round to scrapping these photos form the snow in 2010.
This one it did for the Scrap 365 November Challenge.  A very simple plain layout for me but one I was pleased with.  I used nitwits papers and embellishments which I cut out and layered.  I then added stickles to the snowflakes.  I made a pocket behind my three photos to add a tag with another photo and my journalling on.

Again another simple layout.  I colourised one photo blue and used it to frame my main photo.  The background paper was too good to cover up but I did clear stamp the snow flakes and then use perfect pearls on them.  

I painted some confetti snow flakes painted them and added stickles before sticking them around my photo.   I smeared white thickers letters with silver paint.

Christmas Tree Farm

We are so lucky to have this farm on the edge of town and visiting it is so much part of Christmas.
I made a frame for my main photo using polyfilla mixed with paint and spread over the page.  I placed a piece of card where I wanted my photo to go so that there was a hole there.  While the polyfilla was still wet I pushed the gems into it.  When everything was dry I brushed the frame with green glitter glue.
My main photo opens to show more photos underneath and I secured the flap using a christmas tree brad which I had stained green using alcohol inks.

 Inside the flap I stuck more photos, the label form the tree and the receipt.  I drew over the price on the receipt as it will fade with time and stamped the date onto it.
