Craft Den Scrapbooking class

Finally managed to make it to one of the Thursday night scrapbooking class at the Craft Den. Lynne provided us with a basic idea of cutting away the edge of a piece of Daisy bucket designs Playful Petals: Katy and the idea of the 'grass' and then left the rest pretty much up to us. The curve of the edge said more 'tree' than ground to me so I used it vertically rather than horizontally. Nearly got it finished too - just had to add the wording on today which was a bit problematic - see this is the problem if you're on a self-imposed stash free month.
I tried to print out the writing on the velum but my printer was not having it so I printed it out on plain white and laid the velum over the top. The leaves are hand drawn and finished and I put some left over swirls on the 'grass' to add a bit of interest


  1. This is lovely. I agree the paper up the side looks like it belongs there, very treeish.

    Got a class myself on sunday at our local shop learning Glimmer Mist techniques. Can't wait :P

  2. Love the page Louisa I'm with you too I prefer it on the side like a tree. Hope to see you soon xx

  3. Love your finished layout. Hope you can join us again soon. Lynne x

  4. What a cracking scrap page, Dawn. I bet you're pleased now it's finished.
