Paint Paint Paint!

I have only been scraping for around 8 months and the thing I enjoy more than anything is learning new techniques, so when I seen some beautiful layouts using paint to create your own backgrounds I couldn't help myself and gave it a try.   I am now a big fan of using paints in my layouts  and am also finding it very liberating to go wild with paint and ink to make my layouts a little less structured.  I am still finding my way and figuring out what works best for me so I hope you like my new layout because I had so much fun making it.

Once Upon A... Sketch April 1st Challenge

Well this is the first time I have done a sketch challenge and to be honest I had a great time doing it, so a big thanks to Once Upon a... Sketch.

I chose to do this challenge mostly because of the criteria to have handwritten journalling on the page, this was the hardest part of the challenge but I am really happy I gave it a go.  

There are many more great designs at Once Upon A... Sketch April 1st Challenge so please take a look at them all.

The Puppies...

Introducing the Puppies.... as you can see they are not puppies at all anymore, but the Beagles are still my little babies and I really enjoyed working on a full page layout of them both.  I wanted to keep both layouts kind of similar and have them displayed together.  I was very happy with the end product even though I spent an excessive amount of time on the Journaling and to be honest I struggled using pink for the first time.

This was really my first attempt at journaling but once I was done it made me a little less scared of putting words on the page, now to attempt  Journaling in my own handwriting.
