I thought I would share a few layouts that I have done recently. I don't have a particular style as yet because I love to try out new techniques and products. One thing is for sure, my journey has been interesting since my first layout.
I need a pedicure
The things you do to get the right picture !!!! I was so focused on this pic ( I was sitting on wet sand with my feet perched up on a piece of old tree trunk) that I didn't notice this lady walking past me. Her expression said it all (WHAT ARE YOU DOING?) LOL Anyhow I wanted this layout to be beachy and rough and dry, just like me feet.
Big Shoes to Fill
This is my latest LO. I haven't used paint on layouts and thought it was time I had a go. For the back ground I used bubble wrap with black and gold paint. It was a bit messy but so much fun, I will be doing it again.
Back Yard Fun
A little tip. When I developed these photos, they were much smaller then the standard 6x4 so I chose colours from the spotted paper and changed the white background of the photo to a corresponding colour using Photoshop. Once you cut out your image you are left with a perfect colour match which you can then use for letters or tags etc. Hope that makes sense.
Nose for Wine
As you might have guessed, I don't mind a drop or two of red wine. The background paper is hand made and has a wonderful waffle weave effect. I inked the edges then stamped in gold. The whole effect was much richer then I imagined. It pays to be a hoarder, the black strip to the right of the wine glass is the metallic piece you remove before you pop the cork. It had Brown Brothers on it and I thought it might come handy one day. It did.
