Getting my mojo back :)

Here are a few layouts I did this week. The Ladybug one was scraplifted from a talented lady on the CTMH boards Kate. I saw her layout using the Splendor papers and immediately thought of these pictures of Caidan discovering all the ladybugs in our grass. The other one was just great, getting dirty and inky fun! I've been wanting to use the Passages paper for a while and they just screamed grunge and distressing so I pulled out my inks and my new Tim Holtz dies and had a grand ol' time. It's nice to have a bit of my mojo back :)

Can I just say...

I am loving my 52 card pick up class at Big Picture Scrapbooking !! I'm learning some fun new techniques and some just "out of the box" ideas. I'm totally debating taking the Claudine Hellmuth class but not sure if I want to commit to another class over the summer. What to do..what to do... :D Here are some pictures from my current class...hopefully you'll be inspired to try something new too! The first picture is printed on a transparency, layered over pattern paper and stamped on with stazon. The second is using bleach and clear heat embossing to add detail. The third is painting with acrylic and using a glaze pen for journalling. The fourth is great for all the little scraps you have because you use them to create a mosaic and thus creating your own patterned paper. How smart is that?? And this is just a small sampling of the inspirations we've been given in just over 2 weeks...and there's 8 weeks left! It's going to be a great summer~
