Scrapping to share

I have been so busy playing, and learning how to do things in photo shop that i have not even put my last few scrap booking pages on my blog to show you.
This one was created using Junes Design Team kit from Scrapbook Studios, and I used it for an example for our Winter Warmer competition... Distressing
As you can see by looking at the close-ups I have used a heap of distressing techniques.

This gorgeous flower is from Prima, The white stem is a twig from our twisted willow tree, painted white. (just this twig- not the tree!!). Distressing technique's here..paint, tearing, curled and inked edges and scrunched fabric.

Here is that flower again..just because I love it so much!

Dry embossing has been added to this black paper, via my cuttle bug, and then I softly sanded over the embossing. Tulle is a favorite texture of mine when scrapping, this piece has been left a little rough around the edges

Stitching always adds interest, the edges of the hearts have been distressed slightly using an edge distresser.

...more tulle, dotted with kindy glitz and a tiny heart pin to add a little softness and girl feel to an other wise pretty 'rough, distressed page!

Another page...Aimee again!! Yes I need to do some boy pages soon!
The papers in this layout are all from the Anna griffin range and are totally awesome, I will use more of these papers for sure!

I used chalks to add a soft colour to my chipboard letter and the TwiddleyBitz Oriental butterfly
Spot the tulle..again, cannot get enough of this stuff!! The scallops have been punched out using a stamp'in up boarder punch called... Scallops!!

Check out the little flowers I made by rolling up scraps of paper, they add dimension if nothing else!

I have a couple more pages to share yet, but its after mid-night AGAIN, and I did promise myself an early night so I will save them for another day.

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
