I tried a new technique for this which is glueing tissue paper using mod podge to the backing card.I then sprayed it all over with blue glimmer mist.I used rub-ons and adhesive swirlsplus sewn on buttons as embellishments.The title is scrapmatts again sprayed with glimmer mist.I machine sewed around the edges.This layout is the colour room.

It is a photo from when my mother was 14...in 1932! She is now 92 and still "with it".I wanted to scrap a few of her favourite photos while she can still recall the details.This one had her talking for quite a while.One of my aims /reasons for my scrapbooking is to record family events,past and present.
Thanks for looking

These two cards were made using leftover pattern paper scraps and Scrapmatts chipboard.The first is a 90th birthday card for a friend of my mother's who was a dressmaker.She loved the dress form and background papers.
The second is for a friend who loves red.I used a scrapmatts card border under the red poppies.

This layout is for The color room.Even though there is a touch of brown here,the colours were blue,lilac,pink and yellow.I used an old doiley which has pink/blue in it plus flowers in the nominated shades.The flourish was glimmer misted with yellow then blue to create the colours that match the cameos.I added some yellow brads and blue buttons.
This was on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence where there were many lovely jewellers shops.

I've made 3 layouts from the Rusty Pickle papers I won on FS2S to send to the flood victims.(see previous post).

scrapmatts chipboard and rhinestones.I used graphic45,Sass Lass,Bella and Rusty pickle papers; then put scrapmatts chipboard hearts(inked),corsets,dress frame on the top.I thought it could become the front cover of a sketchbook for my costume designing daughter.

That antique lace was in my grandmothers stash and the patterned paper is SandyLion "tile" which I've had for several years.

This was an old photo from a trip to New Zealand in 1978.I blew it up,then discovered it had an orange tinge to it. I used this to effect by glimmer misting the Kraft then incorporating the colours of orange,yellow and blue(summer) to decorate my layout.I'm still best friends with these 2 ladies, 33 years later.
