I scrapped.....

4 February 2007

Ive has a burst of scrapping inspiration...Woo Hoo...

I even managed to cover my boring old diary..... so it may have taken me until February to do it...but Ill have 11 months to enjoy it still.

Bummer the photo is in the shade..... but you get the idea...

......and I also finished my album cover for my little 2007 project..... following on from Zina's class at the Creative Edge.

In Zina's class we made a simple layout for the month of January.... it contained 12 photos and some journalling..... I loved the idea and thought an album for the entire year would be very achievable......so yesterdy I finished 'January' and the album cover.... even noting my hopes for 2007 in the front cover.

It looks quite scruffy in the photographs....and truthfully the album is.....it has material binding...roughly stitched and frayed....lots of sanding...gesso...paint....and text paper....and it looks really cool IRL... I want the layouts to contain lots of snippets of the months as I go along...like movie tickets...receipts... brochures ect...so I envisage by the end of the year it being jam packed with all sorts of bits and pieces...not carefully placed at all....just 'scrapped' together.

Mmmmm...what else is happening?
Im on night shifts..... Ian and Mitch are away fishing for the weekend.....Brent and Alex are hanging out here....keeping me company (or at least I think thats what they are doing...lol)

The weather is HOT ... 40 something again today.....

Well...Im off to start another little project

Happy Sunday everyone....

  6. The 2007 album is very cool. I love how there's a page full of photos opposite a page with some journalling. You will have a fantastic keepsake at the end of the year :)
