This month has seen me trying to use up things from my stash that I have been saving for “special” layouts. Some things I have been saving for 10 years! So, pretty much every layout that I have been working on recently has something on it that I’ll never be able to get again but it does mean that I am starting to move things in my Scrap Room and will be able to add more come the Brisbane Scrapbooking Expo in a few weeks time.
My first share is this layout. I was inspired by the frame. I’ve been looking for ideas for my Expo display and came across an idea to use the frames on their side as an embellishment rather than to actually frame something. I really like it. You will see this pop up a few more times over the next month or so on my blog so make sure you check it out. What do you think?
The frame, wish title and Dusty Attic feathers are from the D-lish store. I have just embossed them a few times with Glossy Black embossing powder. Girl Grunge style is a style I am really loving at the moment and it gives me the opportunity to get a little messy – which I love. I added heaps of texture – inks, stamping, cardboard, torn tissue paper as well as some hessian, punchinella and sequins.
Something I discovered or rather rediscovered this month thanks to a recent class I did with Fiona Paltridge is Hessian. I knew you could get it in beige but really it comes in all colours of the rainbow…Who would have thought!? It’s a nice relatively cheap way to add some texture to a layout. If you don’t have any in your stash, I highly recommend you get some.
I have a process video this month that has a bit of an added extra. My daughter scrapped her first layout and copied my process but made a very different layout to mine. So, it just goes to show you can take someone else’s basic idea and turn it into something very different. Here is the link.
