Pocket full of Poetry .... and colour

31 July 2013

Now why would I start a blog post with this title. Simple. It is the title of my new favourite song by Mindy Gledhill. Her new album will be out very soon and I can't wait. I was listening to this song when I came up with the design for my new layout for the 4th summer colour video.
This is the layout I came up with. Like last week I used black but this time I paired it with bright colours.

Here is Mindy's song:


The 4th summer colour video is longer than usual as I opted for live commenting instead of the voiceover. The lighting isn't its best as I filmed the whole process at night. Please play along with the summer series and upload your layout using the inlinkz buttom just beneath the video. You might win a fabulous prize from me at the end of the summer. 



With paint on my hands

I'm typing this post. I have been painting all day and hope to finish tomorrow. I have been scrapbooking during the evening period even though with my boys staying up late, it is quite often interrupted me time. I made several layouts with the Scraptastic kits, but I won't show them all just yet. One is for the summer colour video series and the other for our Online crop which will be held this weekend. I can show one of the three I made. Once again I have ventured into the white space zone. This layout show how easy it is with just two patterned papers to create a layout. I love the flow created by the die cut and the circles. 


Don't forget to join us on the Scraptastic forum for our online crop to celebrate Scraptastic's 3 year birthday:

YAY. Well yes? I'm happy it is Monday. My boys are all on summer camp this week which means it'll be quiet at home during the day. 
Plans this week:
  •  today I'll be sorting out Elouan's room and prepping it to be painted 
  • Tuesday & Wednesday: painting
  • Thursday cleaning the house and finishing the chair covers.
  • Friday: scrapbooking
I really hope I'll stick to the list. I am still enjoying my Scraptastic kits and think I'll have nothing left by the end of the month. On this layout I used my cameo to cut out some circle shapes. I added a bit of colour to them using my gelatos. 


See you tomorrow when I'll have a winner for the Gardeners' digest.
