Creativity Boot Camp - Day 3

Oh! my, todays word challenge over at the Creativity Boot Camp was multilayer. What on earth did this say to me? Initially it made me think of winter clothes, it is said that to keep warm rather than add bulk with thick jumpers, lots of thin layers are better. How would I photograph this in June? I thought and thought all day, I was still thinking when I started to prepare dinner, I was feeling pretty down that maybe I would fail on day three. Then look what I saw! Dinner is still sitting on the counter half prepared, this little piece of inspiration needs to be recorded ASAP!
The photo was enhanced using Picasa, not bad me thinks for free software. Something is dawning on me, each day the project immediatly speaks to me, but what is recorded is something that comes later. Hmmm! what does that mean? Probably something like there are more layers to me than an onion, Hmmm.

Clever idea, the onion is the original multi-layer!
Irene said…
Wonderful photo! Made my eyes water though!

Layers do unveil in at times and in way we least expect it. Great shot and use of the word multi-layer.
Carol Anne said…
I love that the idea came to you when you were least expecting it!

I'm not the only one with onions on my mind then? My first thought when I read the CBC word prompt was onions and Shrek!
Great photo!
Hope you're enjoying the camp!

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
