Scrapping Time ....

Last week my friend Elaine came for a crafting day, well we normally meet between 10 - 3 and get a couple of layouts done in that time. I have normally designed something to teach, and then we do a layout of our own after lunch. Lisa tries to join us as often as she can, and I try to encourage others to come to any Saturday classes that i arrange. We did 2 very different layouts this time, one very bright and funky (which i had designed previously ready to teach) and the other more grunge. Elaine had brought the background paper with the gold print on it as she really wanted to use this in the afternoon. She was at a bit of a loss as to what to do with it, so i looked at it for a while and then thought, this needs toning down, so i grabbed some stencils and used a sponge to apply distress ink through the stencil, when i had finished i wasn't too keen on the blue that i had used, so i reached for a Bermuda Bay coloured ink pad and used the new Stampin Up heart stencil to add some more detail and to ink the edges of the full sheet. I then felt it was really to use as a background and started to build up on it, here's the result ....

another layer of paper to add behind the music paper and of course a photo ! and might be just about finished :)
