playing with ....



... grunge paper & distress stickles & melton wool felt & tim holtz stamps ... I love the way the grunge paper holds curls and folds ... and yet remains totally pliable ... i clearly have autumn on my mind.

Speaking of ... check out the Fall 09 edition of Canadian Scrapbooker ... it is stellar! and i do mean stellar! This is my fave issue so far ... the art is excellent, the articles, excellent, the cover shot, excellent ... I haven't read through the whole edition yet but I have looked through several times and read a bit ... my recommendation ... buy it!!! totally inspiring stuff inside!!!



WARNING: YOU ARE APPROACHING A SHAMELESS PLUG

okay and if you flip to page 61 of said issue ... you will see a layout by me ... and it's a weird one ... first it's very very simple, secondly it has a lot of journaling and third ... it is an 8 1/2 x 11 sized layout ... the one and only that i have done ... and there are no pictures of family ... how weird is that???



don't say you weren't warned! lolzy

super congrats on being published - i couldn't have picked this out of the crowd as your work - isn't it awesome to step outside of the norm?

ps - can't read the journalling what's it about?
