and now for something completely different

Over on UKScrappers, Shimelle is hosting a technique class every month - and now for something completely different (nfscd). On the 10th of the month she puts up a list of the supplies she will be using. You then have 10 days to get everything together before she does the 20 step post on the 20th of the month, walking you through the layout with pictures rather than a video.

So, as you know, I am a sucker for Shimelle led classes/challenges/techniques, so I just had to have a go! This month, the first post was here and Shimelle showed us the papers, embellishments, paint etc we would need. I didn't have the papers she was using and didn't particularly want to use the exact ones anyway as I didn't really have photos to go with them. This was the ideal opportunity to put together a kit using some of the stash I already have (and then I feel virtuous too!). Having got my kit ready I couldn't wait until the 20th when this post was put up. The project, step by step. I got to work on Saturday evening and came up with this layout.
I enjoyed using a technique I hadn't done before, namely splattering a mist on the page! This layout took a while to put together, but I enjoyed every minute of it and loved all the different elements on it - paint, mists, sewing, cutting, writing etc. I also liked the fact that I actually used up some more of my patterned papers!

Love the splattering! It's something I go through phases with - need to get the inks out again I think

It's good to challenge ourselves to new techniques, it's easy to get set in our ways. This is really lovely

Hi Becky ~ I love the new look of your blog. :o) Your scrapbook layouts are so lovely! It's fun to see them and see how much your style has changed in the two years that I've "known" you. They are simply beautiful!!! xo
