Really loved doing the challenge this month, so much so that I have a few more 'drying' as we speak. I was rather slap dash with my method in that I just laid tissue paper over the mould and added water with a paint brush, dabbing it in around the mould. I then just pushed and squeezed the paper to get as much water out as possible before leaving them to dry in my airing cupboard which took a good 48 hours but loook at the results!
I am really pleased with the little heart shape and the aztec (y) type sun. They look fab irl and I will definately be doing some more. I am surprised at how firm the end result is and all this made from paper! So my next task is to paint them and use them!!
I have been running a few ideas through my head this evening and hope to make a start tomorrow.
In the meantime I have finished a few layouts with the May Bad Girls kit.
Just realised the other two are in the other camera so I will upload those another time. You know I always wonder what my postie thinks when this kit turns up each month...promptley labeled up 'BAD GIRLS' :lol:
April has been a very busy month for me not least of all because it was my hubby's 50th birthday and I organised a trip to Eurodisney for both of us and all three kids...this was technically challenging since they are all in the middle of exams. Anyway we went, we conquered and had a fabulous time.
So I have been back a week and managed to finish off the two outstanding CJ's that I had hanging around and then finally got round to doing my layout for Shimelles class and April 25th. Believe it or not I managed to get 13 photos on this page (after cropping) and I am very pleased with it. I intend to use it to track my weight loss over the next few months...lets hope you see a little less of me in the future! Crikey...just realised that having put that out there I now need to make sure I do it!
Other things I want to record are the changes in the garden, 'whose in the house' cos we are a family of five and I am often here alone, and whats 'on my mind'.
About to be divorced with three children..Charlotte, Josh and Jake.
I discovered scrapbooking in November 2006 and now find myself dabbling in all sorts of other things including photography, altered books and art jouralling.
