this this & this........

I was so inspired at 2.30 am...chatting away with a friend... and went into the gallery and saw a really awesome LO.... which drove me to create this.... you see Louise had used a printed transparency with the design of bamboo shoots all over it... so i got thinking how cool it would be to recreate that pattern.... so with the help of a PP and transparency film and some masking fluid and paint. i ended up creating this background..... now thats cool!!

How to:
  1. Place the Transparency film on top of the PP
  2. Trace the design using the masking fluid, allow to dry
  3. Sponge paint all over, allow to dry
  4. Peel the masking fluid off.... "revealing your design"
How cool is this then and what an awesome effect... I love it and will keep on playing...

6x6 Pattern Paper Pads......

Question from Natalie - What do I do with them? I don't really scrap 6x6 and although I have used some pages and joined them together to make a sort of quilt effect I can't think what to do with the rest of the almost full pads.

Ok so i put my hand up and said to Natalie to post the pads to me and I will have a play! So what have done is made a circle album using the non pattern papers and back each page with another color and machine stitched...also making some peep holes. The next album is a 6x12 which i used alot of the pattern papers...i did the same with this one and back each page and machine stitch too... I also made each member of the family a monogram - with the help of my cricut - i cut each letter out 4 times so that its chunky, and last a 12 x 12 page which i just glued to CS, then ripped a page from a music book and place off centre...adding more machine stitching and distressing and inking....of course i have thrown in some little extras there.... stamped so j-spots and punched some tabs and cuttlebug some little people.

So Natalie i hope what i have made for you , you like and I hope I have given some of you some ideas....Mwahxx
