I made two pages in my last scrapping session, but because one was for an online challenge I didn’t want to confuse things by showing the other one as well.
This is just a simple page which celebrates a very big occasion.
Gorgeous Man’s graduation where he officially became Dr Gorgeous Man 😀 Excuse the scribble hiding his real name.
The owls and florish were fussy cut from patterned paper (not the same one) and the text
box circle is a Kaisercraft rub on.
I’m discovering that rubons don’t really hold up well here in PNG. The Kaisercraft ones have held up the best and if I was going to buy rubons to stash that would be my brand of choice, but some of the cheaper brands have suffered from the humidity and stuck to the plastic. I think I’ll end up using the partial rubons as a grungy sort of background at some point.
Today I need to restuff a platypus. This little fellow accidentally ended up going through the washing machine.
And became horribly lumpy and misshapen as the stuffing inside felted. I promised a distressed Gorgeous Girl that I would carefully unpick one side and restuff and sew him back up again. Then, if there is time I’m going to tackle on of the
gazillion online tutorials I’ve bookmarked to try.
I find, that because I quilt, most of my time on the sewing machine ends up being used for the big projects, like the current quilt in progress, and all the cute little things I want to make get neglected. So this year I’ve committed to spending some time each week to working on either one of the myriad place mat panels I’ve got waiting to be used, or a small pattern from a book/magazine in my library or an online resource. I’ve spent the last two small sewing sessions on placemats, so time to try an online tutorial.
I hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by.
