This week at my desk I have been trying to create a christmas masterboard to cut up and use to make some cards. I am also hoping it will be a fun thing to do with the girls from scrap club.
I have been inspired by the one we made with Jo Firth Young (we didn't do christmas) last week but I'm not really happy with the results so far.
I used Fresco chalk paints but the first one was awful….
I didn't blend the background colours enough. The one below came out better and I will be able to take sections of this and hopefully make a card. I still think it all looks a bit messy.
Oh well…. practise makes perfect!
Happier pictures to show you. Alison and I had an afternoon to spare on Saturday as the men went off to football. The weather was just beautiful so we decided to take up our cameras and head for the hills. (Nope.. not a stamp, gelli plate or an ink pad in sight!) I took Alison to a reservoir near to where we live where we always used to go with the dog. (Sadly she can no longer walk that far ) These are just a few of my photos, can you believe I took about 40!
It's surprising what you'll do to get a shot…….
Climb over a large very shaky gate on to private property and stand ankle deep in a bog……
Stop the car in the middle of the road, scramble up a steep bank with a herd of curious cows looking on!
Just another mad day in the life of me!
