I'm Back!

Hello all. My apologies for being absent from this blog for a while. I had a wonderful overseas trip - you'll be seeing a lot of holiday pics for a while!

I must admit, I missed my scrapping! I'm back into it again now and everything seems fresh and inspiring.

This is the first layout I've made since I returned and I created it just for the fun of it. As usual, my Dusty Attic chippies and paints were the first products I turned to.

I don't know if it's a reflection of all the gorgeous colours I've seen on my trip but I seem to be even more obsessed with colour than ever. I didn't think it was possible to be more obsessed than I already was! I've concentrated on colour and texture on this page, keeping embellishments simple. Having said that, the piece of the large Dusty Attic Chevron Panel is a feature and draws a strong focus to the photo.

I painted the Polaroid Frame roughly with Soot and Navajo White paint. My favourite piece on the whole page is the Mini Heart Button. These always seem to add that special something to any page!

I made the background mainly with Colour Blast paste, Heidi Swapp Color Shine and LSG Magicals.
