Keeping my word:
Doubling up this post..This is a 'try this' challenge for Show Us Your Stuff and also it is a layout created with a photo I posted with journalling to scrap at a later date here.
This system is working well. I also have the 'Roar' layout completed with the journalling I did on a post a few weeks back..I have done that for a design team challenge though so I will post it at a later date. I am truly much better at journalling on the blog. I tend to really overlook the important things to say when I am busy be creative on a layout! Too many pretties to put on and no time to think about the meaning behind the photo..Typical me..In fact I was almost finished this layout before I remembered I needed to get on my blog and squish in some journalling - to busy up to my elbows in glue and what have you!
Over at Show Us your Stuff the challenge was to try a textured background use gesso etc. I have used patterned material, craft glue, glimmermist and white paint- with some splodges of yellow thrown in after for good measure..Apart for making the page buckle a little it seemed to work well enough? Mind you in my typical fashion - I have covered most of it up with other things!
I am super-chuffed with the finished product. Crafty, bright, bold and meaningful too!
