I have been doing a bit of scrapping lately. The kind that has been making me very happy! No assignments...just scrapping for me...playing with whatever I want to play with and well just playing!!!
Playing is good for the soul and the inner creative side we all have.
This LO was inspired by Creative Scrappers #208. The photos really inspired my background design. My husband is twirling my nieces around in the backyard at my Mom's. They had a blast and truth be told he thought is arms were going to fall off before they would let him stop! Anyway, all that round & round motion got me to thinking. One thing led to another and the next thing I knew I was cutting swirls from the patterned paper. Free hand...no pattern. Just letting it go and seeing what happens! It was quite fun!!! I then added the machine stitching. This was fun too as I twirled the paper round & round on my sewing machine!!! Another fun technique I tried was paint splattering using various colors of spray mists. I shook them up, unscrewed the top and then tapped it onto my background paper. Beautiful splattering occurred and without the mess that I have found when I have tried this with paint.
Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup/Homemade Bean Soup, Coconut Lime Soup, Neopolitan Bean Bisque
Embellishments: Jillibean Soup/Felt Flowers and various stickers
Letter Stickers: American Crafts
Mist: Tattered Angels
I will have more playing to share with you soon...hopefully later this week.
Thanks for stopping by & saying HI!
