Recent Layouts

Right as promised, the layouts done at the Exhall Green Christmas Crop and designed by Cleo Jarvis (Bellaboo)

This had alot, and I mean alot of detail, the tree shape was done using the chipboard tree below, and traced on to a sheets of Kraft cardstock, then the all of the back of the cardstock was covered to bits of patterned paper and lace, left to dry, then machined sewed all over, tree shape cut out, and heart shapes, adding some hand stitching here and there, and but together. The shape around the edge was done using a shaped cardstock and handstitched. Absolutely FAB-U-LOUS - as Craig Revel Halwood would say.

My Mind's Eye - I do believe that Cleo has a passion for cutting out details from patterened papers, which works really well. The white cardstock has various size circle printed on it using bottle cap, cutters and pearlesent ink.

This tree she designed herself and got them made up. Again loads of details, painted white, stamped on top with ink and pattern of your choice. heart shapes cut out from the kraft cardstock, beads, threads, etc, etc. On her original one she had but photos onto the back of Bottle tops, but I've not round to doing that yet - and I doubt it I will at this stage.

And this one is the only one I managed to do on Saturday at Bromsgrove - its a sketch challenge
October Afternoon - Report Card

added a journalling card behind the main sheets.
Rights that all for today, will have to finish sorting out my Journal Your Christmas 2009 album and get them photographed and uploaded.
Thanks again for stopping by...
