This layout is for Dewdrop Crafts weekly challenge.
In the picture is my husband on a tree swing that we came across on a walk.When he saw it he just had to have a go and I couldn't blame him cause it was a bitterly cold day.The wind was blowing all the leaves about in circles.
I decided to cut a big tree out of brown bazzill to make it look as though the picture was hanging from this tree.I also cut out vellum leaves and stuck them down as though they are falling from the tree.
The layout reminds me that eventhough winter is fast approaching, summer isn't the only season that brings fun and laughter! Autumn is a time to explore nature at it's very best!
It was so nice to make a layout instead of Christmas cards!
I got this stamp from Dewdrop Crafts and it was crying out to be used for a card! I wanted to do something a little different to what I normally do so I decided that it was to be a pop up card. I stamped the image onto watercolour paper with Staz on ink pad and coloured it in with watercolour pencils ( another thing that I have never done before ) and i am rather pleased with it! It brought out the little girl in me!
Well I have finally decided to make a small Idea Book for when my inspiration is flowing but no stash available to hand!I was fed up looking everywhere for a book that would be suitable so proceeded to make one myself.
My friend gave me a kit of black and white patterned paper which started off my inspiration. 1st I bought a pack of plain postcards which I placed holes in and then cut a back and front cover from scrap card, slightly bigger than the postcards.Then I covered the card in the patterned paper and placed holes in the same place as the pages.Then I added eyelets.
I attatched the whole book together with white ribbon and decorated the front cover with 3d flower embellishments and stick on letters also a embossed fairy.
Now I can take it anywhere with me and if something pops in my head I can scrpbble away!!!
