Blessed with beauty

We had a wonderful conference beginning of June with Scrapaway and we really had a marvellous time. The venue was lovely and the food was just absolutely YUMMY!!! We had a spitbraai for lunch and then the most DELICIOUS desserts made by Cheryl! The day was a huge success and I loved teaching this wonderful group of scrappers!

I used the gorgeous paper from Pink Paislee , imported by Scrap Shack Studio especially for the conference. With my layout I tried to teach different techniques that can be incorporated in other layouts and cards. The embossed circles were created using a 50c coin and then distressed it with charcoal cats eye. Then followed some "bullet holes", paper weaving, paper frills, folding techniques, layering and tearing, distressing and inking and some hand drawn journal lines and borders.

The lace border around the photo softens the look and the beautiful journal block is perfect for the title! Of course I had to add a blossom for feminine touch and some buttons for flair!

This is a lovely design for very bold papers or different off-cuts you really love! If you don't like the distressed ink look on the circles just leave them plain for a lovely detailed effect! (It's me in the blue shirt age 5!!!)

Happy scrappin'
