Well here we are at last! It has taken me the last 5 hours to connect to the internet via my 3G card that has finally started working again after 5 hours of almost continual reinsertion. My ADSL landline has been problematic for the last 2 months & we have reported it a bajillion times.
A very frustrating evening where I have got absolutely nothing else achieved. The only internet service provider that covers our area has proved itself incapable of providing us with 24 hour internet despite the fact that we pay for it so we just have to take what we can get as no amount of reporting has got the problem resolved thus far. Hence my blog-hopping is practically impossible.
Here's my 2nd page created for My Creative Scrapbook using the latest kit I was sent (see HERE). I went for a neutral scheme with this page using a strong black border & distressing & heavily inking the edges of my page, tearing, folding & adhering to create some interesting folds & creases.
I fussy-cut the frame around my photographs then marked with a pencil where I knew my photos & frame would lie on the page then stamped with various shades of brown ink using the border scroll stamp that came with the kit.
I used white acrylic paint on a sponge to add all the splashes of white you see around the page & on the elements.
I fussy-cut the framework for the photo out of a sheet of Prima Lyric patterned paper using my Exacto knife & used various Lyric stickers & chipboard elements on my page.
I adore the Prima metal embellishments - see the metal clockface tucked underneath the flower cluster above. I use Tombo Mono adhesive to adhere. They are great for making a page look more masculine.
