Also on the theme of trying something new I have just paid for my first online class. I am hoping that I will be able to fit it in around our holiday and the school holidays, will let you know how I get on, am currently waiting for my first email!
I have been trying to branch out with my scrapping, I love the sketches at Let's Scrap but a girl needs to try something new (look at me sticking to the theme of this post). I have just done two pages that are totally all me. I have kept them quite simple (not trying something new there), but I have cut papers, inked & stamped.
This page uses My Minds Eye papers, I also managed to get the coordinating stamps in the sale. I kinda like having no title for once, but it does have journalling.
This is the LO that I tried to download last post. I have let the papers do all the work, I think that they make a great frame for this photo.
I have not gone completely cold turkey on Let's Scrap, let's be honest who can resist a challenge? Last weeks challenge was to replace a letter in the title of your page with something else. I replaced the O in together with a flower.
Here is the full LO, this is one of my favourite photos of my little family. I really liked this challenge, it enabled me to get those stamps out.
This weeks challenge was to use stitching on a LO. Love stitching, it is something that I can do of an evening sat on the sofa. I used Fancy Pants papers (another challenge on Let's Scrap is to use Fancy Pants), I have never used them before so I made a sneaky purchase.
And this is my entry for the Fancy Pants challenge, not sure if I am able to enter both LO's, will just have to wait & see.
I am trying to finish a couple of LO's before we go away, again on the trying something new theme, I have followed another scrappers blog to Once Upon A...Sketch, the ladies on here do some amazingly beautiful layouts. They have some fab sketches on there to use, I am not sure that I am brave enough to post anything on their site, but I am brave enough to have a go. Will post my LO's next time.
So yes I am branching out, still scrapping but trying to move out of my comfort zone. Definately need to find something other than scrapping to occupy me over the holidays, think I will do a search now, fancy something to make. Let's hope the weather improves for our holiday. See you in a week :)
