For the embossing on the paper strips I laid the paper over my scalloped ruler and rubbed my embossing tool over the back of it then sanded the front lightly.
I alos got around to have a play around with some more paint and the August sketch challenge over at TSE. I had so much fun doing this page.
For the title I swiped the page with some paint and then stamped the creative imaginations carefree and antics stamps straight into the wet paint. I didn't get the real defined image I was after so outlined them in the white and black gel pens when dry.
I also played around with layering the same white and black rub ons. You can't really see the effect though as the bulk of the white rub on is on the pale pink Fancy pants paper.
I have a pull out Doodlebug stamped journaling tag tucked behind the photo mat that tells the story of how whenever we went into Fremantle to see Bec at Scrapindipity we always had to pop into the Fairy shop and to Culleys for lunch. Asher got to pick whatever she wanted to eat for lunch and nearly always it would be a Jam sandwhich and a strawberry milkshake. This is a memory I wanted to scrap as I can remember going to the same coffee shop with my Nanna when I was Asher's age.
What else has been happening out here
-My little cheeky rat got into trouble at school yesterday. She had a small dinosaur at school, put it in her desk then went on to tell the teacher that another boy in the class had taken it. The boy in question is autisic and got a little bit upset about having to turn out his pockets so to speak. So today Asher had to go and say sorry to the boy and to her teacher too. While in the shower this morning she came in to me and asked if she could take Layth a pressent and make hime a card. So she raided her dinosaur box, wrote I'm sorry on the tag and drew a picture of a dinosaur on the card. And yes this crazy scapnut took pics of the dinosaur and card with my little rat and have plans on scrapping them for her school album.
-I've been sick with a cold and sore throat. Only now just feeling better this afternoon. I went to the doctors and was told I had a slight infection, not enough to be given any antibiotics but enough for two days of work. I wasn't going to say no to that. lol
-I'm waiting to hear if I get through to the next round of idol. Friday is a long way away. lol The next challenge has been posted though and it isure is a challenge and a half. To do a page using NO ADHESIVE. I have a few ideas in mind and will start working on it tomorrow night after all the usual Thursday shopping and housework is out of the way.
Well that is about all from me. Till next time, thanks for stopping by and any comments and happy scrapping.
