Lots of catching up to do!
This first page is for a new challenge blog called GET PICKY. I almost always use multi photos now so I couldn't resist having a go at their sketch this month and it was a lot of fun.
These are pictures I scrapped a long time ago. Actually these photos where the very first photos I ever scrapped when I started scrapping 4 years ago.
Well I wasn't a serious scrapper then and would have only completed about 6 LOs a year I guess, if i was lucky.
Ive only been a serious scrapper for almost 2 years, any way as you can image the original was pretty BAD!
If I get brave one day maybe Ill show you. hehehe.
Any way this is Paul and our first baby Kaiser. Not a day goes by that we still don't miss this big fella and he really was the most perfect dog ever.
I cant have a post with out close ups. Yes my love affair with Glossy accents continues.
WORDS OR WHATEVER and when I saw him I knew he'd be perfect for this page.
I really liked his raw chipboard colour as I thought it mixed well with the tones in the pattern papers so Ive left him raw out lined him in dark brown texta , gave him some shadows with my favourite grey marker then added some detail with my fine liner black pen, coloured his tongue and gave his cheeks a rosy glow with red texta then finally yep you guessed it more glossy accents for his nose and tongue.
Now onto something so amazingly beautiful and special that my wonderful and talented friend made me.
I cant tell you how blown away I was when this arrived by mail for me yesterday. I really am lucky and very blessed to have a friend that cares enough to make me such s stunning piece of art and I am so happy and proud to have this beautiful LEANNE original hanging on my wall. I love every little bit of it and I cant stop looking at it.
Even Paul said WOW thats AWESOME when he saw it and thats a big deal coming from my husband. LOL.
So THANKYOU Leanne you are such an amazing friend and I will treasure and love it forever.
Now just before I go I also wanted to tell you about my new DT position over at WHITE WITH 1.
I almost fell off my chair when i received an email asking me if Id like to join the design team.
Of course I said YES!! hehehe.
Its a fantastic concept and the rest of the DT are very talented and inspiring scrappers so, I hope you'll find the time to check it out and play along from time to time.
OK thanks for stopping by. TFL
