I Scrapped!

Yep... I scrapped!  It's been a while I know, and I had to do a little dusting before I even opened any of my scrap supplies.... but I did it!!  :)

Too many things were battling for attention and the time I was dedicating to scrapbooking was sadly compromised, so much so that I felt it was affecting the standard of my work... and therefore my enjoyment of it.  I consequently stepped down from many of my creative commitments and endeavours, but that familiar itch was always there.

Anyway, I finally had to do something about persistent itch and what better way to do that than to showcase a photo from our Christmas trip to Tasmania?  With a gazillion shots of the stunning Cradle Mountain, I am definitely spoilt for choice for the next 12 months when it comes to the availability of material to scrap!!

So here it is... a 'just because' page to blow away the cobwebs.  I might start browsing for cool challenges next.  Any suggestions?

Oh, and my apologies for the shocking photos.  Hubby has taken both of my good cameras with him on his 'boy trip' to the Kimberley, so my iphone camera had to do!

Up close and personal...




Lots of Prima papers, buttons and flowers, gesso, glimmermist (painted on, not sprayed) and stamping.

I had almost forgotten just how much fun the 'gettin' messy' part was!!  lol



It was great to be back in amongst it... I'm already planning my next one!

Cheers for now,

Jules

HI Julie, im so glad you had the itch and decided to tend to it, i took a class of yours a while back at Miss Arts and became a fan of your work then, i would often hit your blog and thats when, i think, you had pulled back, words cannot say how thrilled I am that you are scrapping again, I know that scrapping can really take so much of our personal time, so im glad you are at it again.

this is just gorgeous, love the colours, the details, all the misting, stamping, is fabulous and i can recognise your work anywhere.
