Layouts and challenges

There is a new challenge from Shimelle, on UKScrappers, called 'and now for something completely different'. She has brought several different techniques together in one layout, splattering paint, layering, stitching, glitter and journalling in several places. It has been done as a step by step instruction which make it easier to do.
I chose to do it digitally but in reality it took as long if not longer to do than if I had done it with paper and bits. Although it wasn't a sketch that we worked to I have copied the instructions pretty much as laid down but using my own papers.

When I digi scrap I often find I am not getting any where with the page so just save it in a folder marked 'work in progress'. Looking in there this week I found several pages I felt I could revamp and make them work. This one I started last August
Play Time

This one was much more recent for the photos were taken on Christmas evening.
Bed Time

Sometimes I can start and finish a page in next to no time at all and this next one is an example of just that. Took me about an hour to do
Tingling Teasels

Today I am grateful to have been able to just sit and scrap without feeling guilty because I did do a little bit of housework before I really got going.

These are both fantastic Mary.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
