Publications - Scrapbook Magazine Issue 64

Aaack it has been ages since my last post!  I have just been too busy creating and dealing with my usual chaotic life to keep up with my blog!   Nothing I can share yet but as it has been a while since I shared any publications I decided to do that for today.  These layouts were done for Issue 64 of Scrapbook Magazine for an article I did on making your own leaves and stems for your layouts.

This first layout was using patterned paper, florist tape and wire to make the leaves, stems and curlicues and I used Bo Bunny Alora which is definitely a favourite of mine as it is so bright and gorgeous!  This is my beautiful best freind and her family.


This next layout is of my parents in law and I used primed Canvas from an artists book and mists to create the leaves and I used Bo Bunny Country Garden for the layout.  I don't normally do such bulky layouts as otherwise they can't fit into page protectors but I am doing a few like this of the family that are going to go in a few 12x12 frames and up on the wall :)


For this layout of my Mom when she was young I used rolled tissue paper, fabric and embroidery thread for my leaves and Bo Bunny Serenity for the layout.


I had to do a sheet of leaf and vine templates too so for this last layout of my little sister I just used the vine template to draw onto cardstock and paint with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. 


That is it for today and we have a busy day ahead of us again today so I had better crack on with that.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
