A longtime not blogged
Well I haven't blogged since August 2009 so its getting on to be nearly a year. Why not well I need a break and I wondered what was the point of me blogging when I did have a scrapbook business. Well I'm back!
I have been busy since January taking lots of classes with Big Picture Scrapbooking and have learned a lot of different things and made lots and lots of scrapbook pages. Currently I'm doing a class with Nic Howard called Dimensional Details. We're only on week 3 and I'm loving it. Each page is taking a life of its own and I'm using all sorts of techniques I don't take the time to use normally. Take this layout for instances. The eyes on the skull are from a necklace I purchased at Kohls just for those two beads! I now need to find a use for the other beads as the necklace won't work any longer.
The special technique on this layout is masking. I used a Tom Holtz Spider web mask and some silver glimmer mist. I did this over the background paper and the black patterned paper. I then added the color to make the whole layout pop off the page!
The skull and the hinge are both Tim Holtz grunge board - which I'm now in love with. So easy to use. I found it at Tuesday morning at a really great price. I even gone back and bought more after using it. If you have a Tuesday morning I recommend going and seeing if they have it. He has some great video's on his website on how to use it.

Well blog readers that's my first post in a while but I promise to be back more regularly!
