I also was meaning to put a tutorial on here for making the roses in the post below with actual paper, but none of my images would upload. So you only get to see the finished product. I ended up using tissue paper to start with because my patterned paper was just too stiff. I figure I need to play with the proportions more to get it to work. Anyhow, here's my rose (don't ask why this one uploaded but none of the others would...):
I got a little bit o' scrappin' done yesterday, not a whole lot, though. My ideal day would have been to spend the day scrapping, but my niece requested to spend the day with her, so I obliged by accompanying her & my mother-in-law to the mall.
The sketch for today was done specifically for this layout. I knew I wanted it round & that I wanted the photos round, and then I got stuck. For a week. I finally got myself out of that rut by sketching it out and adding to the sketch as the next few days progressed. I was finally able to get it to fruition yesterday when I got some time to play.
For my example, I used papers from Me & My Big Ideas and Sassafras (I got one of their mini stacks of Sweet Marmalade- love it for this sort of stuff!). The Monster Cards are also Sassafras. The stars are miscellaneous die cuts I had rolling around in my embellishment drawers forever & I cut the jagged felt borders from some of that pre-adhesived felt you can buy at the craft store.The stamps are ones I bought at Michael's forever ago, and the chipboard is from Heidi Swapp.
