I have just finished a double layout about our recent trip to Port Victoria. I had 14 photos that I wanted to include in the layout and instead of going for the option of printing them in a reduced size I decided to print them in a 7" x 5" size and place them in a booklet.

I have used a Doodle Bug card for the background that has felt dots. The patterned papers I have used are an old Basic Grey range, I am trying to use up some of the millions of pieces of paper I have collected.

The embellishments are created by stamping, I have stamped on blue velum with StayzOn Ink (fish, suitcases and tag), I have also stamped and embossed on white card. Some of the images created like this I have coloured with Twinkling H2O's (ie shells). The chipboard has been painted with acrylic paint and on the brackets I used UTEE to give it some shine. The texture has been created by keeping the heat close to the chipboard and making the paint bubble. I have put two eyelets at the top of the photos booklet, which has a 1/4" spine, to thread the twine through and then fastened with a brad to make the appearance of hanging pictures

Ray hurt his back the Monday before Easter so our plans of going to Whyalla and then on to Port Lincoln for my sister's 60th birthday celebrations did not eventuate. He is on the mend though so hopefully we can get up to Whyalla to visit Mum soon.

Thanks for dropping by
Till next time
