Last night I took a break from scrapping. I can’t say that I didn’t do anything creative yesterday, because I did a quick card to send with a puzzle piece I decorated for a friend from the Creative Keepsakes message board. Here’s the decorated puzzle piece:
Here are two closeups of the altered puzzle piece:
I had such fun creating this layout from the All Moments Remembered kit that I got on Monday. The paper was perfect for my New Orleans photos. We went back in 2001, it was lovely, and the food was delicious. Here’s my LO:
Here is a closeup of the fleur de li chipboard piece. I painted it brown, then rubbed some metallic blue paint on with my finger... and it was a bit too blue, so then I toned it down by rubbing some of the brown paint over the blue. Then I scuffed up the edges a bit with an emory board. I think it turned out pretty cool...sort of looks like old metal:
In this close up, I layered 3 flowers and added a Prima brad, it has a cherubic angel on it, which goes with the whole New Orleans French theme:
That’s it for now. On a side note, Blogger has been a bugger this morning, and doesn’t let me use the little picture icon to upload photos... the way around this is to put the pictures in by editing HTML. Since I have my pictures on Flickr, I can just copy the HTML code that Flickr has under my photo, and they pop right in. I don’t know why some days Blogger works and some days it doesn’t.
Have a great day!!
