My Inner Baker - Jun 2017

I really enjoyed using inspiration from Double D Challenges Blue & White comp. Somehow these colours didn't suggest a card to me but a digi scrapbooking page instead and I channeled my inner baker.

For some years now its been difficult for me to follow recipes and concentrate enough in the kitchen to do anything except for what I know best. The last few years I have been able to follow the backs of packet cakes or cupcakes.

But very recently I finally have enough headspace to look at recipes again and bake things. It's a small step to some, but a giant leap forward (to quote a famous quote - thanks Neil) for me.

So I used this blue and white challenge to come up with a page featuring my most latest bakes and a bit about that for me. I used IRL items which I don't use that much these days - like the window (which I made into a cupboard) and the basket, and the french metal gate. I loved the colours of the challenge- all those blues and checks, metallic, greens and white.

My Inner Baker - digi scrapbooking page Double D June 2017

It's hard to describe to others how I put a page like this together, considering its so many elements over so many different kits. I do alot of changing colours and lighting on pieces to get them to match - particularly things like the key, whereas others like the tea pot I didn't edit at all. The basket, for example, was light brown cane with two teddy bears in it. I cut the teddies out and made the basket white and put my flowers 'into' it. The French metalwork was in gold and was around a fancy doorway, and I just cut out the bit I wanted and repeated it to make this pattern. The checked heart I used above the photos, but I also upsized it to make it the 'table cloth' for my basket. It was originally brown and white. I used a combination of material items and hard surfaces like wood and metal to match the inspiration photos.
