It’s official! Small birds fared badly through the freezing winter conditions. See the results here
Here are my last three layouts for this class. I’m certainly getting through a lot of stash which is a really good excuse to buy more when the class is over!!
This week’s main lesson was about painting and extraction. There was stitching, erasing, mixing type and handwriting, and even extracting items from their backgrounds to create embellishments. It was the first time I’d done some of the techniques but I really enjoyed making this lo of GS…..even though I realised when I had finished and saved it all that I wasn’t supposed to paint all over his face!!!! Oh well…back to the drawing board??
The challenge today was to use cardstock, so I decided on shades of blue to match the photos. I even had a go at weaving two different shades into an embellishment. These two photos of GS make me smile even though you can’t see his face…..his antics trying to sit down on the little pouffe were hilarious!!
These foolish things……I tend to scrap photos of people more than things, but when I looked at these two, I knew they would bring back memories of silly jokes shared together on holiday!
DH to Irene, ‘That statue looks just like you!’ Irene to DH, ‘Which part?’
Irene to hefty DH, ‘DON’T sit on that chair!!’ Hefty DH to Irene, ‘Why?’
