WooHoo Mag Shares :-)

Firstly here is my Introducing Article in SCRAPBOOK MAGAZINE, who I am now designing for :)

(blogger is back to doing it's turn everything on it's side trick again, grrrrrr, sorry about that)

Secondly if you have the new SCRAPBOOK CREATIONS you would of seen my very first article.

Thought I would share the Layouts and Canvas I completed for it and also a few close ups


Used sand, which I mixed with PVA glue and paint to make the cute little frame. Lots of mesh, and lace, and Texture paste for the title.


Covered a chipboard background with scrunched paper towel, then adhered a doily over the top. Used spray paint to get into all the nooks. More lace and mesh and lots of felt.


The fun bandage technique. Cut, layer and adhere. Love how much depth this gives. Lots of bling, felt and layer.


Background Patterned Paper covered in a serviette/napkin. Stitched all over and added glitter to finish. Love this LO, just the small grouping of photos, and all the little bits and pieces. Lots more mesh and just fun things from around the house.


Trusty old corrugated cardboard. Spray painted black and then high lighted with red. Brackets are covered with texture paste, circles are cut from cloth tape, and the skull is cut out of bubblewrap.

Loved creating this article, and sharing with the Scrapping community.
Let me know what you think :-)
