Scrapbooking from Scratch retreat
After a week and half of illness, I recovered sufficiently to attend this retreat this past weekend. Here are a couple of photos of the sunsets over Lake Macquarie, where the retreat was held. There was still the smoke haze from bushfires in the area in the preceding week.
Thursday @ sunset
Friday @ sunset
Saturday @ sunset (my favourite)
As well as enjoying the sunsets I did manage to scrap some layouts - here is one, with more to follow in later blog posts.
This layout was done in a class at the retreat. The white CS had Gesso applied, left to dry and then Gelato crayon sticks used for the background (unfortunately it does not come up clear in this photo), the resulting streaks of Gelato's where then diluted with a baby wipe as I went around and around in a circle motion. Washi tape, a stamp of leaves coloured with Gelato's and a titlel complete the page of my cousin Julie and I. There is about 10 years difference in our ages (me being the elder) and we have been close over the years. All our lives we have got "Julie is just like Margaret" or "Margaret is just like Julie" and you can definitely see the family resemblance in this photo taken in May this year. Love you Julie.
More layouts to come....................thank you for looking
