Leave the Nest
I just love this photo of my children off to school, this was Bellamy's first day and they all look so young and fresh faced. I wanted to do something special with it, but it was the only photo I had, and also in Black & White as the uniform is a hard colour to work with.
So I did a layout for Down Under Direct, and used the new Foliage 2 dies, which I just love and have used on every layout since getting them. I have also used Bitty Blossoms, which you can make up as a rose as normal, or by cutting them from brown cardstock and allowing them to spiral, down the skewer, you can make a neat pine cone. Just use hot glue to keep in place. Of course the kids are a lot older now, and looking back on photos like this are why we scrapbook lol
Paper Artist, I have been an artist of some sort or another all my life, with formal training at Art College. Cardmaking, scrapbooking and papercraft have now become my format for atistic expression for almost 20 years now.
