Brrr! Mr Jack has sure been around this morning! Wrap up warm is definitely the order of the day today!
Well, today is Tuesday so as is customary on my little blog I would like to share with you a layout which I have created recently (last night in fact!).
This is another photograph which has been hanging around on my computer desk waiting to be scrapbooked so here it is.....hope you like it.....
This is Hironomous. A Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was quite literally "dumped" on us. We were asked to "foster" him for a short period and the owner never came back to collect him. It is a very long and suspicious story which I won't bore you with here, only to tell you that he was one beautiful and loveable dog with a big heart, and was a wonderful addition to our family. He was very cuddly too and here he is cuddling with a sweatshirt of mine.
I had been pondering how I was going to scrapbook this photo when in the middle of the night I thought to use the Boofle papers again and create a quilting theme using my Sizzix quilting die. However, when I laid them out on the background, I needed something more than just a plain blue background.
So I got my hexagon mask out, and sponged some white acrylic paint through the mask to create a quilted look. The photo has had a little white Sharpies added to the outer edge. The stickers are from a pack of Boofle goodies which I was given for Christmas. The title was cut using my Cricut and some card which started life as invitations to a Hunt Club Dinner. Well it was a shame to bin them as it is such nice card.
I faux stitched around the edges of all the hexagons and using my Boofle stamps I stamped a few without embossing them. All the wooden buttons were threaded with bakers twine from Papermania and I used some variegated thread to stitch around the outer edge of the layout.
A few hearts, again faux stitched and layered on to a rosette which was in the Snippets tin. A little Snippet of Stampin Up ribbon which my lovely friend sent to me. I shall be running over to the Playground with this as there are lots of Snippets used! Is the brazier running yet?
And for those of you who wanted to see some shots of Amsterdam, here is one which I took from the boat when we went on the (expensive) canal trip! Yes it was snowing but looked very pretty!
Have a great Tuesday.
