I planned to blog again with some layouts and it is almost Friday again when it would have been too late!
Life is still busy but the sun has been shining and I have a glimpse of the sea a few times a day to keep my equilibrium up. Who needs green pastures? It is being with the Lord by green seas that restores my soul. It really is more of a green than blue round here. And so clear. I've almost been tempted to swim. But not yet!
So here are the layouts I have made and not shown
With a slight qualifier.
The only downside with having a lovely teal coloured bedroom is that it is soooooo hard to take a photo without the colours being all blue toned. I might have to give up with these and replace them with better ones if I can find somewhere good in the house to take photos!
The worst is this one
I bought these Ruby Rockit papers specifically with this photo in mind. It is just awesome! Pam from the choir brought the house down by playing Britannia at our final Kingsley Choral Group concert and I had to record the moment. I added some background to the paper by inking through two masks with Distress Inks and adding some extra stamping as well - some British bits like the Union Jack and newsprint. The houndstooth print is a Hambly screenprint backed onto card and the ribbon is Papertrey Ink. The photo frame is Websters and the crown is Grungeboard. Some of the stickers are Jenni Bowlin and others Ruby Rockit. And some gold Stickles both in little blobs and smeared around the edges. And red gems. And, and, and - gold peel offs! I know!
(for my non crafty friends that don't just skip through the descriptions, crafters like me don't usually use gold peel off stickers any more. Bring 'em back, that's what I say. In small doses)
Couple of close ups ahoy
a tribute to my home from home in Upminster - Imagine That
I started with some Basic Grey Basics paper and did some inking, masking, spraying around the place a bit. Then using a MME 6x6 pad I cut and punched strips and shapes and inked their edges before sticking them down. I also used two of Emma's brand new sets of stamps - not on the website yet! They are perfect for giving a lift to a scrap page or to Project Life if you do that (so not me! But I love what others do with it) or Smash Books - or anything really. More Stickles and the most divine new Liquid Pearls in an olive colour
Here is a close up of that hard to read journalling
which is still pretty hard to read. Ha!
Look at the time, promised myself an early night. Failed again! Nos da pob hywl
