Amaze Yourself DOUBLE-PAGE Layout
for 2 Crafty Chipboard





Over the weekend my Design Team post went up at 2 Crafty Chipboard HERE.
Sadly my term there has come to an end, but I have loved every minute of it
& am now a firm fan of 2Crafty for life!!  ANY LOCALS WANTING ANY - I WILL
STILL BE IMPORTING IT SO LET ME KNOW - IT IS UBER GORGEOUS!!


So I made a DOUBLE PAGE!!!!!!!!
Haven't done that in a few years.  Since 2012 actually!
And you know what, I enjoyed it!!


So here is the LEFT-HAND side close-up.  You can refer to the 
2Crafty post, linked above, for all the chipboard detail.  

The reasons I created a double-pager are :-

1.  I'm teaching classes locally so it's good to have a sample of a simplish
 double-pager for those that want it {it's the most popular way people scrap here}

2.  I actually wanted to record all these photos together anyway, because
 they tell a story as a unit, so it made more sense to do a double page.  


Here is the RIGHT-HAND SIDE.  I used white cardstock as I wanted the mist work to 
stand out clearly {to teach people how to do it in my classes} and also because cardstock
is cheaper than patterned paper & keeping costs down on class pages is key.

I used packaging instead of patterned paper, gauze & dry-wall tape {as those are both
cheap & easily available products in Africa where scrapbooking is expensive} but of
course I couldn't resist a couple of lovely flairs & Prime flowers to finish things off!!

So what do you think?!?!
Weird for me I know but as a class page I think it's really do-able & I'm 
excited to be able to spread the mixed media love around South Africa!!

I think as a class page it is fabulous. Love the photos and the chippies are amazing. A fabulous page. I love doubles.... I always have soooooo many photos that I want to use. That is why when I get back and eventually get to scrapping I am going to do project life.
