I’ve gone back to the layering class by Shimelle and have got a few more layouts done.
The next few are techniques in using colour.
Prompt #11 – Frodo was so tiny!
Prompt #12 Prompt #13 – this one is similar to the class layout apart from me completely ignoring the colour part of the prompt as I just didn’t have photos or papers to do it. Prompt #14 – I really love this one. I didn’t have much in the way of white embellishents so I painted some chipboard and put rub ons over the paint. I love all the different textures and shades of white. I’ll definitely do something like this again.
Prompt #15 – The colour techniques part of the class are finished and now we’re onto placement. I struggled with this one more than I should have. I think it was because of trying to use up old cat-themed embellishments, but they’re not going to waste LOL
Since tidying my paper scraps, I’ve been using them a lot more, especially for layering. There are lots of old papers on the layouts in this post, but I’m particularly impressed at using a sheet of Club Scrap for the background of prompt #15. I loved Club Scrap, and getting a box of goodies every month, but it did pile up after a couple of years. I gave a lot of it away but I did keep the more useable stuff so it’s good that it’s finally seeing the inside of an album.
Last one for now is prompt #16. I quite liked this one as the placement fitted with a photo that I particularly wanted to scrap as I wanted to document my happy place.
I’m going to take a break from the class for a while now and get back to my Baltic cruise album. I’ve been writing out all the journalling in advance so that’s ready to print as I go along. Doing that saves time while I’m scrapping and makes sure that I get all the memories down. I’m going to love looking back at the cruise albums in a few years.
