Isn't this weather just glorious!! Long may it reign (not mentioning the other similar word!)
I am sharing my layout I was intending to share with you last Tuesday, which the Blogging Gremlin stole once I had loaded it last week. Do you remember this one........
Well, it was too 3D to get into a scrapbook album, as well as not fitting in colourwise to our Scrapbook Wedding Album that I have been working on so I used the rough outline and made one more in keeping with the blue theme.....
Only fing is that the blue of this photo does not quite match the colours of the papers but the below one does. I don't know if it is me, but with shades of blue I often get difficulty reproducing them from the camera? Can you see that lovely blue carnation in the bottom right? A very schpeshial blogging buddy may that for me, as well as some others which all came in a handmade box a little while ago. I told her I would be using them sparingly and this is the first one! They were all "real" flowers. Super aren't they!
More flowers which I have shaped using my super dupler moulding mat and tools from McGill. I can see me using those a lot in the near future! All the inking was done using Faded Jeans, Black Soot and Barn Door Distress Inks.
Some TH cut flowers and some cut on my Silhouette and then sprayed with Colourwash inks. I also used Spellbinders and Paperartsy flowers on this. The papers came from the set which came with the album and my Snippets boxes. I shall be skipping over the Playground very soon for a paddle in the pool.
I just love to layer and "fiddlefart" with my flowers, in case you did not realise by now! I hope my CAS friends can cope with all the layers! That brad on the right is a Laura Ashley one. How long was that all around? I am still using the papers too....slowly!
More Sizzix flowers with an embellishment I think I bought when Noah was still in shorts!
Right, off to go outside to play now in the sunshine. Spare a thought for me as I have a slight change of direction in my painting. I "volunteered" to paint the downstairs windows outside which are 6" or thereabouts - so far I have done 38 and I have 102 to go. Then I will have to do a second coat and the sils and after that, move inside!!! I must be mad! But they have to be done. Please pray for this fine weather to continue. We have wanted them to be done for the last two years but haven't been able to!
Thanks for popping by.
