green & orange card

The first thing I've stuck down in 7 days. Made this card for The Color Room Card #73. Love these colours, but lacking in paper skills, so I used my rubber stamps to get patterns. I loved the #73 sketch but lacked the right sized circles to do it complete justice.


I've had trouble this past week scrapping. I thought this weekend I would be able to scrap - but no, I could colour match, but unable to stick anything down and start working on anything!!! At 4pm on Sunday I'd had ENOUGH. I took pics of myself with my double sided tape and scrapped a page - "lost 1 mojo". I ripped, pounded and inked my way to a page for The Boxx fortnightly comp ending 28/8/11 set by Julie (I love Julie's comps and will try desperately to get something entered for them). It's not what I wanted to do, but I'm sooooooo frustrated!!!!!!!

Admit One 1969

Style inspired by UK "Emma" at The Color Room, palette and sketch from TCR #70 (the color room, and in the Fortnightly Challenge at the Boxx 
I spent alot of time wondering how to get my pages to look like Emma's and got to pull out a whole mess of old rubber stamps and paint them to fit the palette. I really like how some items on the page hide or blend into the elements and its only when you look closely that you can see everything. I love how using only bits of patterned paper makes it look like the colour is sprayed on. It nearly did my head in to set it all up.
Do you like my pic of a galah?

Tattoos of memories

My entry page for the Scrap That Song August comp & Bird is the Word "Memory" Sept comp. I took my inspiration from the Green Day song, but I feel a bit out on a limb because I connected in this song in a rather dark way, whereas other entries took a happy spin off it. Oh, well. I've always wanted to do a golden page. I was also inspired by a card my brother sent me from England - it's below. Maybe one day I'll do a completely golden page!
Ingredients: ripped up golden envelope, Gold pens, Kaisercraft jewels, Prima flower, Karl leaf punch, Collage Press letters, Bazzill Mystique, American Crafts black ribbed cardstock.

What's next...?

Well, I guess next I should work out how to add some of my pages! I will read up on that and see if I can get something up on the weekend.

Oh, and I got the editable banner above from a site - but not sure how I link back to there or where I put where I got it from, darn it, though I found it easy to edit with my trusty Fireworks program.

I am a fish out of water!

I have a follower!

It's amazing - but I already have a follower.. just no idea how to thank that poor person. I've had to go into the Scrapboxx where we both have an account to say thank you. Sad, really. It's taken me 15 minutes to remember how to get back into an area to add another post!

I am blogger impaired

I've worked in an IT field for 12 years, but I've never had anything to do with Blogging and have no understanding of it at all. I am lost most days trying to post on other people's blogs, confused over all the log in accounts (why can't I just use my beloved account?) and have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to blogs.
So, I admit - I am Blogger Impaired. But I would like to try and setup a blog so I can communicate with others and add posts to their pages, which at the moment is so hit and miss i usually give up in the sea of log in accounts and errors.
