A couple of Wednesdays ago when I shared my desk for our normal weekly round up...
I was explaining how the Shimelle class had encouraged me to use more paints and stamps etc on my layouts and how it had gone wrong because I hadn't put the lines in the right place. It might not be the way I intended it to be but I do like how it finished up.
A standard 12x12 with a facing split page protector to add to the other layouts of our Kos holiday. I haven't done the journalling on these pages yet because I'm still trying to find out the name of the place we visited! It was somewhere in Kos town I think and it overlooked the sea so it was in a great position. Management and I love pottering about in ruins and old buildings and I'm glad to say that it looks like the children are taking after us with our love of dilapidated historical sites. Of course, neither of them were born at the time of this particular holiday and indeed there is a bit of a story as to how we ended up taking this last minute trip but that's for another layout.
Either side of the yellow strip you can see the white acrylic paint that I dragged with the edge of a stamping block. Top left and sort of bottom right is where I stamped over the dry paint... except that you can't really see the bottom right because I stamped too far up.
I think that floral paper has to be my favourite of the whole Echo Park For The Record 2 and I think it really helped to use this collection all in one go too. I would definitely recommend doing that with any collection pack, especially if you are the type to admire them in their packaging! I've got some lovely kits coming up in my DT assignments for S J Crafts because she's just had lots of lovely goodies delivered! I love collections!
Bye for now
