4x6 Photo Love

Each Month over on 2 peas in a bucket, there are four free classes/challenges. Shimelle Laine is hosting 4x6 Photo Love. The idea of the class is that each month since January we are making a page with an  extra photo on it. January was 1, February was 2 and so on. This month it was 4 4X6 photos.So here we begin getting a bit fancy, with a hidden photo. Also the Studio Challenges theme this week is to raise it up, although its a simple page I wanted to do something to make it special. I cut out some of the clouds and sun and raised them up to give it dimension. Here is my page
I've no idea what's happening with my photos at the moment, they always seem dark and not so sharp. May be I'd better start by polishing the lens!

Great layout. I tried this challenge too. It really lends itself to your city view pics. I love the city scape one of London, I have this as a painting on my wall. x

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.

Stuck?

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.
