I am so blessed to have the most amazing network of friends and to, once a month or so, catch up with some of the 'locals' for a crop at my place. The day is inevitably filled with lots of chatting and laughter and for some of us, not so much creating! :P Having said that surprisingly, for me, I scrapped a layout!
Yet again .. no mixed media! :O LOL! Now that I've scrapped three Clean And Simple layouts I feel like a breath of fresh air has swept through my creative soul and that I'm ready to dive back into the world of mixed media.
I've used the sketch from this month's challenge at Let's Get Sketchy. I'm not sure how I 'stumbled' across this challenge blog site but I'm glad I did! I've really enjoyed working with the simplicity of this month's sketch and look forward to seeing what the new sketch is on the first of each month.
I must confess that one of my 'local' girlfriends whom I get to scrap with once a month is the very talented, and much admired, Ros Madley. I love pretty much everything Ros does and having the opportunity to scrap with her and watch how she does things is wonderful. So yesterday, while I was adding the final touches to my layout I pestered Ros about where she thought I should put my beads, whether she approved of my muslin, whether (when it was finished) she thought it was okay. LOL we had a lot of fun! PS: Thanks for putting up with me Ros!
