Hello again! Today I am sharing another layout featured earlier this year in Scrap 365 Magazine, which you can subscribe to HERE. It is an English based magazine but anyone, anywhere can subscribe at a reasonable rate. It is bi-monthly so produces 6 issues per year, each packed with ideas & eye candy. It covers EVERYTHING from easy to advanced, with many different styles included & one of the regular galleries is the PDQ - which stands for "Pretty Darn Quick!" - pages that can easily be recreated in an hour or less...
My layouts usually take me about 3 times that long so I always
play along with the PDQ if given the opportunity as it is a fun challenge.
Using a patterned background paper is always a good
starting point as it immediately adds more detail!
Being a mixed media gal I can't resist adding just a touch
& splattering is quick & easy & can be dried off quickly.
I used a selection of Prima flowers & embellishments, each with a different colour, texture
or pattern. Selection is key when working speedily. I keep my stash well organised so I
can find things easily. I use open topped baskets & containers so I can fish about in them
or tip them out & pour them back in. Definitely a quick way to stay tidy but still be efficient.
I misted up the doilies then dried them off quickly.
If you keep your heat gun plugged in and have craft tweezers
at the ready this need not take more than a few minutes.
If I'm pushed for time I use my glue gun to
adhere everything as the bond is so instant.
It is a lethal weapon though so be careful!
