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!!!!

Take Care
