Aezine Challenge is back!!

I am so glad that Ali Edwards has begun setting the challenges & sending out the Aezine as it does give some direction.
The challange was to pare down your supplys. Well this is impossible. As a realtively new scrapper, I LACK supplies!! I have had kind people send me supplys for birthdays & then there was the orange stuff my teamies gave me for the challenge I did on the forum Bumbleberry Cafe.
I never have stuff to hand for new projects. I am very slowly building a collection of papers & embellishments but as I am on a very low wage, they are not top of my list. I am also a card maker so a lot of scraps are kept solely for this purpose. I only buy mulit purpose stuff & carefully chosen paper.
We were challenged to make a layout from something we haven't used in a while. I chose metal tags & decorative edged scissors. I have never scrapped 8.5 x 11 before so this is my very first attempt. The title is hand cut using computer font Lucida Hand & printed onto silver pearlescent paper. I also used metal photo turns which I have but hardly ever use. I had to paint silver as mine were all pastel (probably why i don't use them often!!) Papers are from amethyst pack. Clock face was given to me by Gillian.


I made these embellishments myself as I had nothing suitable for a boy in black & white. I simply typed the words on my computer in different fonts & selected black text boxes so the writing turned white. I cut them into stips & stuck them into a rectangle metal tag. I then used a star tag to stick over a piece of silver paper cut into a star.
I am very pleased with how this page turned out & made a second one about myself based on a Cathy Zielske design from her first book. I will share it later this week. Getting a decent photo is proving hell on earth!!!
