Off the page...

Tonight I have decorated a tin for a friend, who's neice liked the one I did her son a while ago. (Confused? I am!)

I used MME 'quite contrary' papers, well, one sheet of actually, but I used both sides. I love the colours of this line, but you can't really appreciate them in a photo.







Now I have been experimenting with different styles of detailing photos. These two styles take a lot less time to upload, but which of the two do you think is best? I would really appreciate my readers imput here!

Slide or Collage?

If I get a minute I shall write up a post explaining how to easily acheive both.

I did the whole tied ribbon thing, as I have seen it looking good so many times, and loved the shabby effect, but I don't think I really nailed it! Nevermind - she can always cut these off if she doesn't like it!

I have somehow run out of photo paper, and when I tried to get some in the supermarket today, they had also run out! Disaster! So hopefully tomorrow I can find some and print off the photo I really wanted to scrap next, otherwise I shall be attempting this one instead....


Makes you want to dive for the baby wipes, doesn't it?!

Take Care - Ju xx

oh she is just going to love it - it's really gorgeous.

Now as to which I prefer, well both are good - but I get more of a close up of your work with the slide, so it's better on the detail.
