I know scary thought, but everyone seems to think i scrap fast, and i guess i do but its only impatience to finish. So i thought i would do a test and take photos along the way and this is what i came up with, warning LOTS of photos!
find a photo
notice there is a pretty piece of paper near by
and see if it goes with the pic
see if any other paper that is lying around goes- decides it foes not
find another bit and find it does go
find some plainer paper to break up the background
and a another just to shake it up
decide dont like brown paper edge to edge so i chop it up a bit
chop some plainer paper but not too much so you cant see the pretty dots
gut the paper because its one of my favourites
chop a sqaure of the patterned paper, holding it over work so can guesstimate how much you might need
notice pretty paper has other colours and go in search of some stuff of similar colours
spy lovely die cuts right in front of my, and see a red one that will match
spy some ribbon that looks of similar colours
stick ribbon down
stick die cut on foam pads and plonk it somewhere
decide corner looks a bit bare so go in search of journalling spots that i use on most pages i do
decide didnt like last square so get another
then remember i have some chipboard and see if anything goes
pop out everything i want
having stuck my photo down already i peel back the corner to get my journalling bits in
layer the next one
stick chipboard in a corner that has nothing in it
go round everything in black pen- coz thats just what i do
spot some blue bling lying on my desk so i stick it down
go for putting bling in centre of flowers but soon decide looks naf so just scatter it about
check out my photo to think of a title, rob normally thinks of them but as he is at work i go for where we are/what we are doing i.e in the woods
search for thickers
search frantically with a pack of thickers with a e in it- bingo only to find....
there are no T's bummer so start looking again
finish title and add date then.... wait till the next day when the light is good enough to take a nice photo
Ta DA!!! so thats how i do it, think it took about 20-25 mins, i really dont think about it too much coz then it stops being fun so i just randomly plonk stuff on the page.
Hope you have enjoyed the insight into my mind lol
today i have cooked the most food ever and now pretty worried there isnt enough room in the freezer for it all, i have also found a fab new shop for fabric so think i will order a tiny bit.
But its slowly getting dark here, i cant wait for the light nights to come back anything but this, i have to walk such a long way home coz of the dark, i normally walk through the woods and still do to get to work but its too scary on a night and just adds more time onto my journey boo hiss!
And as for hobby craft all i got were some needles and PVA glue as i have a messy idea which i might do now or might go to blockbuster and sit and knit lol
however i did buy this huge giant comedy sized ball of yarn the other day
its not the greatest ball in the world but with so many babies to knit for you have to make do with with you can afford right.
Well i best go and make something lol thanks for stopping by as ever x
