After using Facebook I haven't really bothered with my blog, in fact I havent bothered with it at all and I have enjoyed the time away. It's been too long to catch up so I'm just going to carry on as if I was never missing and try to update links as and when I have time.
So, the reason for starting is that I entered a scrapbook competition because my Greek friends have entered and it looked fun. Until I realised that it is at least a couple of years since I scrapped a 12x12 layout. I needed to upload my layout and everyone else has blogs for theirs so here I am again.
The subject for the layout was given as 1000 steps from your home and there have been some amazing layouts entered which put me off starting. The deadline was yesterday and true to form I left it until... yesterday. My best friend Helen came down and we went down to my new studio for a few hours armed with Marmite crisps, biscuits and coffee (thanks Helen). I managed to put the layout together in time to photograph it before dark but when I looked at the others it seemed old fashioned, like looking back over old stuff. Still, it made me want to do more and there's always Pinterest to see what the latest trends are to see if I can get a bit more 'with it' for my next pages.
This is my entry, I should have given myself more time because I don't like the title and I would have liked to tweak it more and embellish it further but it's done and I quite like it anyway.
The corrigated 'tin' was made from painted pieces of card but it looked too flat so I mixed darker paint and UTEE to paint on without heating it as I didnt want it to look glossy. The eggs are polystyrene shapes cut in half. All of the supplies are a few years old dug out of my stash.
