Scrapagogo 2013 last layout

Having spent all evening scanning in old photos of the children, I thought I'd have a rest and post the last layout that I faffed around with at Scrapagogo. I loved the original but it was too clean for me as usual, so I've added a few bits, inked and distressed it, and now its ready, I think you'll like it !!

Scrapagogo 2013

Here is my take on the classes I took at Scrapagogo for the first time this year. Most of the classes were very clean and tidy, you know me, I can't do clean & tidy, so after a bit of added muck and other stuff, I'm pleased with them. They're not all shown because I haven't quite finished them, I'll add the others later

Here is a link to the actual classes https://www.gogo-getaway.co.uk/gallery.php?cid=101 you'll be able to see the originals before I pimped mine up !!

Sea Life

A challenge to use non 6x4" photos, not too hard as I use all sorts of different sizes on my pages, but I did particularly like these round ones !

PaperArts On Tour 2013

Well what fun we had......onsies, hot chocolate, chocolate fountains, make & takes, awesome food, classes and lots & lots of laughs...

I wasn't too mean this year, and remembered by Sunday that most people just wanted an easy layout, without tons of fussy cutting, so this is what we did, or started to do, most had got the basic idea and just had the photos to add ! Hopefully they will be finished before next years PAOT !!!!

 Saturday evenings class was an experiment with tea bags, I thought it worked very effectively. We mixed the tea leaves with some gesso and spread it like sand on the layout, dried it, we then dribbled another soaked teabag over the top to give the old fashioned tea stain. After more drying we inked it with Tim Holtz's distress ink.

 Early Saturday mornings class, a few minor disasters at the beginning, but luckily they were sorted and we did progress, I introduced the ink stain splatters which everybody had a go at, and even those who thought they wouldn't really like them did and a high sale of stains was reported from the PAOT shop......

So that was another very successful PAOT, looking forward again to next year already, I know spaces are selling fast already so get in there and book if you want to go !
