Being me 2016
2016 saw me delve a little more in Mixed Media for scrapbook layouts and cards. I was able to attend several classes by the very talented Beck Beattie firstly in Brisbane and then Melbourne. That's right have need will travel. Her inspiration layout will be at end of this post. Here is mine:
The first inspiration from Beck's layout was the placement of the patterned papers. I have yet to journal. Some adventures of my own with Embossing paste with a circle design, flourishes that I die cut in white and then stamped colour onto. Most favourite discovery of mine - I was looking to do flowers and could not find just the right embossing folder, stamp etc the aha moment - earlier in the week I was using paper table napkins to create my own tissue paper - hey, why not use a paper napkin with the die cut. Mine just happened to be embossed already.
How special are these flowers - look at all that texture. Love it.
I used the napkin as it came out of the pile, so you get several layers to play with. I could image these with colour, stamping of words etc. I used as is on this layout to get the soft look I wanted.
This is Beck's layout. Thank you Beck for your inspirational layout.
Thank you for looking. Have a great day, Margaret :)
