‘Just for Me’

…really…no competitions or deadlines???

Never heard of…are you sure!!!!!!!!!!!???????????!!!!!!!!!!!

YES!

Here are a couple of layouts I did, just because I wanted to try some new things and scrap for ME!

 

I have been wanting to create a RAINBOW inspired layout for ages, and I made this heart embellishment from odd buttons, odd paper scraps punched into butterflies, and a few bits of bling lying around.

Susan also challenges me to use a negatives strip on a layout…so I thought..PERFECT!

The next thing I have been wanting to try out is altering a background with mixed left over alphas and just white-washing with paint so the colour comes through a little.summer

I also found in my stash some Heidi Swapp chipboard pieces with resist on them…so I thought I would have a crack. I also mixed in a little WOW chipboard with the flowers

The last layout, is one that i have been wanting to do for ever….scrap my antenatal scan photos….and I found them the other day, so they were on my priority list of things to do

we wait

I have been wanting to use some of the black chipboard pieces from WOW, and I am in love with these butterflies

So there you go…I can scrap ‘Just for Me’…it isn’t always about sharing new products or doing challenges… sometimes it is just because this is why I scrap..to record memories and be CREATIVE.

 

Happy Scrapping

Cheers Wendy x x x
