After getting over Saturday's  frustration the creativity seemed to flow today and the day wasn't long enough :-)

My Ma & Pa - 21st September 1963, the photo is a scanned one and it's seen better days this why i distressed all my edges and tried to get a real vintage feel happening (Not that your old - I still luv yaxxx)

I love the saying just above the date 'There is good & bad in everyone', how true is this???

Dusty Attic - Memories word these are amongst their new releases.

Even more Dusty Attic - Swirly Vine, Tulle which i love ( I do have cream & white in stock just need to put it in shop, soon promise!, email me if you would like some), Flowers, Lace.

Well that's my sharing for another day!

Just Art!

 It's week 3 of DD with Nic & the fun thing wasn't really happening for me yesterday with this layout! I started my day with lots of positive ideas only to be unstuck by the first step of choosing the papers. The papers i first picked ended up being the ones i choose for this layout & i should have started from there. But oh no I had a moment or more like a 4 hour moment going through all my papers probably 4 times, even got to the stage of cutting 3 other sets out. They weren't working for me and my frustration grew & grew. So gave up & decided if i miss this week i do!

After dinner i had another go, determined to at least try! So out came my first pick of papers and i worked on the background papers, they seem to come together OK. Then disaster again, the pic i wanted to use was totally wrong.....then it came to me... I used the same papers on a bird house i made a little while ago, so to cut a long story short this is my result! I am not normally into  layouts , hence the class lol. I'm not sure if i captured all the design elements for this particular week, but hey i had ago & eventually had fun!!!!!!

Tim Holtz new Alterations Sizzix Dies are just incredible, loved using this one. I used my cuttlebug with 2 B plates  the die  a piece of chipboard, and oh so easy to cut it blew me away. I would normally run the chipboard through 2 to 3 times, no need with this one!!!!!

Think I have rambled on enough lol.... hope you all having a creative weekend!!!!

Dabber Resist

Well it's Sunday late arvo, another week gone................haven't had much scrapp'n time boo hoo, but have managed to do a little playing.

Dabber Resist this is one of the techniques Tim Holtz shares in his new book 'A Compendium of Curiosties' , it is also a technique that we learnt in my online class with Nic.

My tag, which i made as the manilla shipping tag didn't give me the results i wanted from T!m's Victorian Velvet distress ink , a touch of Aged Mahogany around the edges, a touch of     Iridescent Gold glimmer mist over the whole tag, Collections Butterflies, a few pearls and this is my result

Well must a way , the fairy never stopped by to cook our dinner lol

Wishing you all a great week ahead with lot's of scrapp'n time :-)
