White with One, Black with Two June

A very good day to you! I hope your day is going well.. I can't believe how fast the days are going.. I am looking forward to the school holidays where I don't have to go out every day but can stay at home..

Thanks for all your comments on my last post.. I thought I would show you the layout that Bec Beattie had for us to do in her class.. I learnt  that whipped Spackle is not a food but a soft type of texture paste! I also  did some embossing on chipboard which I have done at home but was good to know a few more tips about it..

Becs layout..
and my finished layout which I just changed a few things but the essence is still there..
I sat with GWEN which made it even more enjoyable as we scrapped and chatted.. I would certainly do another class next year!

Well during last week I was able to sit and get a bit of scrapping done...

The challenge over at WHITE WITH ONE is to use
which is a bright red.. and red is such a hard color to photograph and get the shade right, but hopefully my red is ok..
I nearly chucked this in the bin when I first started.. I put red gelato on the page and sprayed it with water, but it looked like I had just had a blood nose.. what a mess.. but thank goodness for gesso which I slopped on and saved the page!!!


and yes I have used new dies from the craft show... the flowers, the brick wall and the honeycomb..

Dance as though no one is watching you..


And the challenge over at BLACK WITH TWO is to use the colors shown and the sketch and the word sweetness  in your journalling..

I found these old Kaiser papers and they fitted the colors and this is my take on the challenge this month..

Sweetness in pink..

Well thanks so much for coming by, I hope you have a great week.. thanks too for your lovely comments..

  4. Wow.......you have been busy! Really Beautiful layouts Lizzy. Love all the textured background you have created. Gesso does come to the rescue quite often. I slapped on gesso to cover where I'd ripped paper , trying to pull something off because I'd changed my mind. It just turned out a little more stressed looking than I had in mind originally. Happy Monday to you, have a great week!
