close up

here is a close up of the masking Tech I learnt last weekend while in Geelong
I will be trying this on other layouts and with different photos as I found it so much fun and something I could do in the family room

Masking Class

I went to a masking class and was taught how to use them right and how to finish the layout off with a mask.

Found this interesting and fun to do as I have never done this before it was something really new to me and the teacher Simonne who is a Design Team Memebr for Scrapping Around
did a great job of teaching me I really enjoyed this class

Found you need time and you also need to have a great creative mind and you need to play with teh mask before going ahead with where it needs to go on the layout

This was a really fun class to do and yes I will do masking again one day


Billy Can
Billy Can was made by sanding the suface of the lid and painting it all over when I took the photo light wasn't right for the lid so will upload that later on
I covered it with card stock and paper then added flowers and bling till I was happy with the design.
adding the ribbons was fun and I used ribbons from swaps all sorts of colours to give the tin a happy look
I still need to add my name and some other bits but apart from that it is finished

Mt Paris Dam

over the hoildays and weekends we often pack a picnic and tour our local bush land this place is not far from my home town and it's a great place to take the boys back into the Bush to enjoy the beauty of Tasmania
I enjoyed doing this layout and use some new supplies from Scrapping Around
Marcus sanded the paper for me as I was cooking tea he said that looks nice card stock I said yes but it could be sanded to show the colour underneath, the result was a light shade of blue showing through
I like the way my photo captures the water flow even though it was the middle of summer in the native bush land there was enough water flowing for all wildlife and plant life

Circut Expression

My husband brought me this machine and I love how it cuts and howal my things come out looking great, the more I play with it the more I'm learning it can cut different things ,being abl to press buttons an it knows exactly what I need it to do making my scrapping and card making so much easier
