I've had a productive day at our Scrapaholix club. I wasn't a major fan of the kit but that only makes me more determined to find a way of using it in a way that I do like. So when I didn't like the cardstock colours and didn't like the paper as a background I decided to use part of a box that I had with me....
I've been wanting to experiment more with corrugated card so I had fun playing and was pleased with the result. I thought the grungey effect was perfect for the photo.
I used stamping, stitching and paper beads to create depth.
I finished with some time to spare so did this LO. I'd been planning it since my kit arrived but hadn't got round to sorting the smaller photos so it was good to finally get it down on paper.
I used glimmer mists to create a colourful background to compliment the colourful toys in the picture. I love these photos of my twin cousins Ed and Chloe, they are fascinated by bugs at the moment or 'beasties' as they call them!
I just love these chipboard arrows and the Thickers work so well with the white pen.
I thought the journalling block was too big and dominant and would be better off hidden but the bit sticking out works well.
So from one set of twin cousins to another, our big twins Emily and Amy are 20 today, we went out celebrating last night but I'm off to see them this eve for a few birthday drinkies at home.
Have a lovely eve everyone xx
p.s Almost forgot about the prize winner, thanks for your comments but the one picked at random was Nat (natzini). Well done Nat, please let me have your address so I can pop your prize in the post xxx
