Its a wonderful Wednesday! Time to hook up with lots of crafters from around the world and share your creative spaces. Check out Julia's Stamping Ground for the blog hop list. Don't by shy!
Thankfully there is a lot more creativity going on this week for me. I've been working on a DT assignment using the lovely Echo Park "Perfect Summer" range which is quite apt for this lovely weather we have had this year.
I'm coming to the end of the pack but so far I have created 4 singles and a double and I haven't scrimped at all. You can see I have more left to go too.
At the top of the pic you can see some bark that Louis insisted we bring back from Wales and he wants me to use it on a layout. I'm thinking it might be good in place of a wood veneer if I can cut it nicely. The little blue thingy under my scissors is my needle holder because I have been stitching on one of the layouts to outline the sun. Here's a sneak peak.
Last week I mentioned my log of layouts which caused some consternation! I have to keep a record of what I have made, photographed and blogged so that I don't blog the same thing or forget to photograph something. Also when I've had times where I've not made anything, I can look at the log and find something to share. I don't do them in order because sometimes I get backed up with DT layouts that might need to come before a group of layouts from a crop or be more suitable to a more current subject.
In the pile I found this one, don't laugh. It was my very very first ever layout and I had no internet, no galleries, no patterned paper, no Pinterest, no sketches, nothing.
Yes folks, there are peel offs galore.
I also mentioned last week about how I needed to get sorted and several of you commented about your own desires to sort your craft rooms etc. Thank you all so much for your support but I wish it was that simple! My "sorting" is diet, depression, fitness, work, housework, etc. I am hoping that I can really get a handle on things (which are all linked obviously) over the next few weeks with the help of Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday. If you are taking this class, please do say hi!
Bye for now
