Some new Sneak Peeks for the class at Paperarts

For my next class - this is the really distressed look - water and screwing up paper, I know you like it really, I love the way it creates a look like material. Again there is no fussy cutting, just punching and water mainly and inking of course !! They've still got the class down as Rachels but I'm afraid its really going to be me....book here !!

Ooops forgot to post these !!

These are the pages I did at the Swindon 48hr crop....I did teach 2 classes too, but even then my efforts are pretty useless for 48hrs of scrapping.....I'll have to go again and try harder next time !!!

I was practicing trying to get the 'blur' with my new, 2nd hand lens, a Sigma 24-60mm F2.8. Ds4 was a very willing subject luckily...its nice to have loads of photos of them at the moment ! I used an EK sucess punch, some assorted stamps and a scrapfx chipboard key.

This was paracticing with my other new 2nd hand lens a Sigma 70-200mm F2.8, again trying to get the 'blur'. Dd3 was only willing if she could keep hold of her phone and wear her flip flops. I used a Marianne die for the leaves, Petaloo for the flowers and a Martha Stewart punch.

Another page of practicing, I've taken several hundred photos lately of the children - well those that don't mind having their picture taken - this is dd3 playing in the woods and stream near our house. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the inside of the circle on this LO, a Tim Holtz mask, Marianne leaf die and some Prima flowers.

This was the PaperArts class

I'm still lovin' those authentique papers, this time we went with the autumn theme, with photos taken in the park with two of the girls playing around.... I loved the Marianne dies too, it was a bit of a pain to do 4 sets, 15 times, but I did want some for myself. Sue sold out, so maybe next time she has some in !!!

Sneak Peeks for my next PaperArts class.

Here are some peeks of the next class I'm doing at PaperArts. I've used Authentique Papers, Marianne dyes, some lovely coloured cardstock and ribbon.
Its a real Autumn theme, but then again it doesn't have to be, the dominant colour is mustard yellow, with brown, red and orange.
I think you'll enjoy it, and honestly there is no fussy cutting at all on this one !!! Really I'm not lying....
