Double Trouble


It's me again with another scrapbook page to share. I find following sketches is really motivating me to scrap at the moment and I found one from The Studio that I wanted to give a try.

I got to use up some leftover PPs from past Quirky Kits too, everything on this LO is Quirky except for the paint and thread!!

So here's a look at what I made...

I tried a new technique by concertinering (is that even a word?!) some tissue paper and then sewing over the top, I like the effect but it was a bit fiddly!

Many thanks for taking the time to look at what I've done, if you like what you see please comment and let me know!

Definately a Big Deal to me...

Hello all!

I know, I haven't been around much, I have been busy though, playing with paper and glue that is!

I'm all about the scrapbooking right now, after returning from my first retreat with some of my online friends from UKS. I had such a fab time, made a few layouts, tried some new techniques and generally indulging this wonderful hobby to the max!

This latest make isn't from the retreat though, I couldn't resist the latest Quirky Kit this month, such gorgeous papers and accessories. As soon as it dropped through my letter box I couldn't wait to create.

And this is what I made...

I love this picture of Adam, relaxed and smiling and having some good, wholesome fun!

I hardly needed to dip into my stash at all to make this Layout, just a few buttons, twines and inks but the rest is all deliciously Quirky!

I followed the sketch for the ScrapFIT workout #78 and would like to enter their challenge this month. Great sketch and some inspiring DT work that really got my juices flowing!

Hope you like what you see, thanks for looking! :)
