More Class Work

Well, I have to say I am absolutely loving the Pop of the Page 2 class over at Studio Calico. I have even kept up with the challenges! But I guess that is because we only have weekly ones instead of one almost every day! So the challenge was to be inspired by something from the third pdf that we received. So this is my result:

I am really pleased with how this one turned out. I was inspired to use some glitter, which is on the tag sticking out and on the wood veneer shapes, and I was inspired for general layout too. Having so much fun layering and adding bits and pieces. Loving these photos too, just look at my little boy, what a little cherub he was. Don't get me wrong, he still is my baby boy, just now he comes up to my armpit and plays World of Tanks with his father rather than being cute and cuddly! Well he still is cuddly!

And can you believe, I have been so inspired by the class and video I even have another layout on the go right now!

Catch you soon.

Stuff, it is such a useful word! You own stuff, you have stuff to do, sometimes you just want to do stuff all! Anyway, today I have stuff to share!

Firstly I have a new nephew! That is pretty big stuff! He was born back in April and is such a sweet little thing, so cuddly just like a little koala.

This is Alexander, isn't he just the most gorgeous thing you have seen?!

I have also started another class over at Studio Calico and I have done the first two challenges already as well! The class is Pop off the Page 2 with Jen Jockisch and it is all about layering and building interesting pages. So the first challenge was to lift or be inspired by one of the pages in the first PDF, and the second was to embrace mixed media.

I am having huge fun using my Silhouette too! Especially when there are great cut files that come with the class!

I also have completed another two challenges from the previous class - Bright Ideas. Yes, I know that was back in February, and guess what I am not quite at half way through the challenges. But I plan on doing them all.... eventually!

So these are water colour resist and texture challenges.

This is my water colour resist. I wrote the title with white glue that dried clear, then used mists over the top, blowing with a straw to get the interesting patterns.

This one was to include at least three different textures, even if they were flat textures. So I started with some mask and ink work, layered with papers and embossed cardstock, chipboard in the title, a flair button and a crocheted flower. I think that covered the brief!

So, that's all from me for now. Til next time....
