Chalk Artist

I've now finished the last of the three layouts I started last weekend. I used photos of Lara chalking on the patio last summer on this final one.

The patterned papers are from the utterly gorgeous MME Quite Contrary line. I also used some Bazzill card stock, Martha Stewart border and and butterfly punches, BasicGrey alphabet stickers for the title and some adhesive pearls and 'tape measure' ribbon from my stash.

The row of flowers along the bottom edge of the layout are handmade spiral flowers made from more MME Quite Contrary paper. So very easy to make - lots of instructions for making these on the internet like this one.

A Birds Eye View

Earlier this evening I finished the second of the layouts I started at the crop last weekend. A very simple layout of a seagull.

The photograph was taken at the Clovelly Gig Regatta in August 2008. Anyone who has ever visited Clovelly in Devon can't fail to remember the incredibly steep walk from the top of the village down to the harbour and back again. As you walk down the cobbled street on occasions you are on a level with the rooftops of some of the houses further down the street. I snapped this seagull during our walk back up the street.

I used a mixture of patterned papers from Making Memories (die cut edge), BasicGrey (clouds) and October Afternoon (bunting and title). The string, brads and buttons were from my stash as were the alphabet stickers from Provo Craft. The title was cut on the Craft Robo. The seagull image in the top right corner was a clip art image printed on card stock and diamond glazed to add some dimension.

Scrapping with Scraps

At my monthly crop last weekend I started three layouts. I managed to find time to finish one of them today. The layout is based heavily on a layout by Helen Croft and uses some scraps of some of my favourite Scenic Route Metropolis papers. The title sticker and chipboard are also from Scenic Route and the flowers are from Prima. The little heart pin came from that well known auction site. Ribbon, brads, buttons and thread from my stash.
