I cannot believe that July is all but over! What happened there then?
There have been some domestic issues, that I won’t go into here, that have taken most of my time and energy this month but hopefully I am fighting my way through the haze now.
I have been crafting, although less than usual. I have submitted my ATC’s for the Scrapbook Dreams July Swap so I will post a photo of the full set when they arrive.
The other biggie for me this month was 4 days in Christchurch, rooming with Brenda and Elaine, attending SENZ and spending a day with Natasha.
I took 5 classes at SENZ!
In this post I will show you what I came home with after the 3 in 1 class tutored by the very talented Trina McClune. What a lovely lady with a lovely smile! It was full on, trying to produce 3 layouts based on 1 sketch in two hours!
I am not happy with the execution of this unfinished layout! To be honest the photo looks way better than the real thing! I love the idea of this technique but I don’t think it’s my thing. I am more than happy to admire Trina’s work in this style.
See what I mean? It is much more her thing aye?
Layout two was to use 5 small photo’s, all the same.
I love the layering and colours of this one. I’m really happy with it.
The third layout used a single large photo.
With my best girl living so far away now, I don’t get the same chances to scrap photo’s of her very often. This photo is a few years old now but she hasn’t changed at all – a beautiful girl, inside and out!
Brenda took this class as well and has posted some photo’s on her blog that you can visit here.
