Challenge Three – Colour Blocking

So I wasn’t really sure what this was but I think this layout meets the brief. It feels like a lot of my layouts – maybe I’ve been channeling early Creative Memories techniques without realising it!

The photos are of three of my favourite Liverpool based singers. Paul Dunbar, Robert Vincent and Gary Edward Jones. All three are amazingly talented and you can’t go wrong seeing any of them perform. Check them out if you’re in Liverpool. ShimelleWeekend - 1 (2)

Challenge Two – What do you value

So the next challenge today was to scrap something that has value to you. Well, it was a no brainer really – the most important, valuable thing in my life is my came… no wait, my husband, it’s my husband 😉

And my home town. The two are intrinsically linked and between them they ground me and keep me sane. And I love them both more than words can say.

Challenge One – Return to Scrapbooking

I was once an avid scrapbooker. I took photos purely for scrapbooking purposes. I spent vast amounts of time and money on paper and glue and ribbon. A couple of house moves left me without a permanent crafting space – my desk was always covered with hairdryers, make up, clothes etc. I just moved house again and once more I have a dedicated crafting space. And fortuitously this weekend one of my scrapbook heroes is having an online weekend of scrapping loveliness.  So here I am. Ready to join in with Shimelle and her army of scrapbook fans. First up – monochrome – not just black and white but scrapping with one colour. So predictably I picked green. A colour I love more than any other. And it has a very special meaning to me. Here’s my first layout for over a year.

My first layout - monochrome colour.

Webster’s Pages

I love Webster’s scrapbooking papers – very intricate and detailed – they’re perfect for cutting up as well as using as beautiful backgrounds. They have a new range for Halloween which you can see here on their blog.

Some digital creativeness

Spent a couple of hours doing some digital scrapbooking tonight for the online circle journal I’m part of. I’ve done almost all of this circle digitally and not with paper and I’ve really enjoyed it – I hadn’t digi scrapped for a while and I’d forgotten how satisfying it can be. Nothing beats paper and glue but when you just don’t have time to get messy nothing beats a few jpg’s and some shadows.
