Well today peeps I have a couple of scrapbook layouts to share with you. I wouldn't really call myself a scrapbooker, as such, as I have only done a couple layouts and they are only simple ones. Here is one of my recent ones. The photo was actually took on my hubby's phone in a very dark room in the back of the pub at Beamish Museum. I think it was a lovely photo of my daughter and my mum (who is 81 would you believe).
The 'Nana' and 'Me' are chipboard letters that I ghave painted using inks and daubers. Then on the nana I have used Baby blossoms stamp set and stamped the little flowers to blend in with the Springtime vintage papers. The 'Me' after inking was then covered using crystal effects, then sprinkled with dazzling diamonds to give it some bling. The ampersand was very plain just using card, so I covered with gems. The bottom paper has been distressed using the distresing tool. I must say I am not a fan of distressing and tearing paper, but I thought this looked ok.
My second layout I did a while ago in one of my classes, a very simple layout as you can see.
Again all cardstock and DSP are Stampin' Up! The flowers are actually felt die cuts with brads on top. Beamish is one of our favourite places to go. Most of it is set in 1913, here Fallon is having a go at one of the school day sports, Hoop Rolling. Its a metal hoop with a stick, this one is actually attached to the hoop but back then it was just a stick and a hoop, and I think they where made out of cane rather than metal. Its fab to watch everyone having a go, as its a skill only some can do. Hope you enjoy my simple layouts.
