New layouts


It was back to my older stash for this lo, I do love 3 bugs in a rug. I don't really understand people who can only use new stash. If I buy paper it is because I love it and it is just waiting for the right picture, it may take years to come along but maybe that is just me.
I do love silicone glue to add a bit of dimension

Good old Chipboard and MM paints!

I made my own 3D stickers, I went through I faze of hating Epoxy looking sticker, then I found myself glossy accenting the stickers to make them look epoxy LOL !
This LO is not my usual colours but I picked up 2 8.5 x 11 pieces of paper and though they suited the photo.

I used the techniques taught by Lori Laing in her class at my crop, distressing with scissors, wet paper crumpling and paper rolling. I had great fun, that class taught me so much. I am usually the type of person who loves straight lines etc but Lori makes me think outside the box.

I am so please with this lo, not so much with my photography skills but I love the lo.
Thanks for looking. xxxxxx

These are really great. I have always wanted to try, even bought some supplies, but still am intimidated to get started.

Lovely layouts - I went through my old stash as I was doing an ebay sale and decided I still loved it all :) So I agree - old stash is as good as new stash!
