Een layout met restjes Prima papier 'free spirit'.
Leuke dare op Dutch dares, ik heb het woordje 'web' letterlijk genomen, een knots van een spin in het web. Ergens bij het Naardermeer, op zo'n dag vlak voordat het echt herfst werd.
Vooral de stempels komen leuk tot hun recht, die heb ik ooit 's ergens gekregen, maar waar ???

Here is the sketch for today, the one that you can use if you'd like to join us and the one that you'll be seeing used by the DT while you hop!
This is a great Nanné sketch, bit like a stamp but I used it to put the picture in the middle.
Did a lot of background on some old paper, used a piece of lace from an antiqueshop as layer.
The circle is filled with hotfix stones, ohhhh so much work because the back (of the stones) is not sticky anymore, finally glued them al with glossy accents.
The picture with my sister and me is almost 60 years old, but stil is beautiful with those handmade dresses.
You can use the sketch in many ways, and the picture is beautiful in the centre...
I made a layout with (part of and a bit photoshopped) a picture of my mum in 1963 ... not looking to bad for a mother of 4 young children ...
I've used authentic paper, lots of small strips and stamping and spraying. Love the Leeza Gibbons flowers, the colors are vibrant!
Sometimes I look at my old albums and really enjoy some layouts. Some are a bit bare without the sprays etc. but I noticed that paper, flowers and pictures often are more present in de the layout. So maybe a good reason to put the mixed media MM down for a while. Are there more scrapbookers that are a bit tired of MM???
This layout didn't come easy. I tried some new things with the background but it was not good. So, I took the middle part of and made a different, simple background. Better, but stil not strong. The pictures are wonderful, Iris in the dress I bought for her in Disney Paris, so happy. The paper is super, Prima, lovely. But not a strong match I think.
Ok next time better, I hope.
Here it's about 30 degrees celcius....so staying inside and doing some scrapbooking is an option ;) :0
Oh, what a struggle, this time. To me scrapbooking is always an escape, a pleasure, but with this layout it wasn't.
The sketch is fine, but I choose the 'modern girl' paper (BB) and that what a bad mistake. The colors are so loud. Strangely well fitting the picture. But.... brrrr. The paper is also very heavy, and some prints are very, very yuk .....
So the first layout I just put it in the bin. Took the foto and the flowers of, and made this one... not much better.
The paper is in the stash that I use for anything else but scrapbooking....
For the next layout I've choosen paper-picture well, so no more frustration hahaha.
Have a good weekend!
This super sketch can be found on 'Stuck on us sketches'. Check out the cool layouts from the other DT-members. Very good. Also, you can win a fine price bij 'scrapbook circle', the kitclub.
I've flipped the sketch. Used a picture of my grazy (but lovely) cat 'String'. The journaling is in Dutch: your beauty and softness, bring me a feeling of sheer happiness, every day!
The paper is a line bij Kaisercarft; curiosity. Sometimes this scrap-paper is so bold in colours and design. Your need a very heavy picture to match up to the paper. But, wel it's beautiful... and I love how the green (eyes), orange and red in de picture is picked up in the layout.
Have a good weekend, hope to see you again... Greetz Patries
I've flipped it and used a misprint that came out of the printer when i printed the pictures for a layout some weeks ago. I loved it, so funny. The family somehow is closer in the 'misprint'.
Used EP paper, a leftover from some years ago, but stil ... love those backgrounds. Did a lot of work on the background. Used masks over the stickers, to continu with the 'misprint' theme. And, did a bit of the oldschool doodling....
This month again a super price, so ... team up with SOUS!
I've made this layout with an old picture of my son, his nephew and our newborn niece. They look so cute together.
I've used 'Life documented' paper by simple stories. The layout is a bit 'old fashioned' with button and string, but it seemed to fit the photo.
Hope you have a nice weekend. In the Netherlands the wether is soooo good, sunshine and birds like its summer not spring. So afther a week with flu I'm going for some nice walks!
I was inspired by the colors on the left top, and started from there.
On the layout Iris, in here new room. Lot's to do when moving ... But a girl has to take time for her nails ...
I love to scrap 'normal' everyday pictures (instead of beauty pictures that are photoshopped), and used al kinds of leftover papers (and some Anna Marie by Prima).
Just visit the blog and you can see so many beautiful layouts made by the team.
I've used a new line by Prima, Anna Marie, lovely colors. The picture was is a box with old pictures, ready to be disposed of. And, because I don't like to trow away pictures, even torn, so instead ... scrapped it.
In 2006 I was a bit thinner ;( ;( and a lot more relaxed as I see it.
