I just thought a little face lift was in order. I see some really great blogs out there but I don't think I've achieved that level...yet!
I thought it would be really difficult to get back into the swing of things after having taken such signuificant break from Scrapbooking but I think my creative juices are flowing well.
I've done layouts of my Uncle in the past, however I'm still not satisfied with the end result. I think until I am able to really convey all of my feelings in my journalling, it's just not a finished subject. Maybe it never will be, but I'll keep trying. Until then....here's my latest attempt...
I really love those little flowers that I found a few tutorials on, and when I say love, I really mean "addicted to". Here's a video tutorial on how to make them yourself.
While I find them appropriate for feminine layouts and ones like the one above, I'm having trouble adapting their use to my husband and boys. So, the next layout, is sans floral.
I'm pushing myself to really do more creative things with paper...so this one I sprayed with a home-made paint spray. I diluted craft store acrylic paint with water at a ratio of about 1 part paint to 2 parts water and then I used a little dollar store spray bottle to deliver the fine (not so fine) mist.
Next I'm hoping to try making my own glimmer mist....I'm sure there's a tutorial on that somewhere!
