Arty Girlz & A Layout

Arty Girlz this week is Triangles. Well I made a bit of a mistake with mine, but have managed to save it from the bin. The gold embossing was only meant to be along the edges & across the corners, but I was too impatient for my distress innk to dry & the embossing powder stuck to the whole piece. It has totally covered the pattern I had stamped!! So I rescued it best I could & as it was hard to get a photo of being so gold & shiny I turned the photo to focal B&W so a lot of the colour is turned off. It was meant to be a brown & green piece with gold traces..hmmm back to the drawing board on this my friends!
Image is Nina from a dear blog friend, Rein.


Below is another scrap layout I did over the last two weeks. Both myself & a few of my teamies were needing some inspiration so when I found two sketches that made me think "Yeah! I can do them" I shared them. This sketch is from the March 2007 issue of SI. The sketch is by the ever so talented Anne Parry. I have wanted to use these pictures taken during my glitzy 40th birthday photo shoot preparations, but nothing would ever pull together. Papers are CherryArte. Bits from my Heidi Swapp kit & Thickers for part of the title.

Looks great Paula, despite the EP 'accident'!! You realise I do that too... it happened on the PVC torso I made last night! Makes it look as if I'm rubbish at embossing... not! I'm just impatient!! ;-]

Love the layout girl. I guess you had some decent light!!
I adored your vision for the nursery, soooo damn cute! I may have to steal some ideas. I saw some cute apple crates I think I am getting to use as shelves........just gotta get Steve to pay for them!
