That's New

I've spent a little time this year trying out different scrap products from suppliers I've never bought from before. It has been really interesting seeing different download processes, purchases, and of course, products for digi scrapping different to those I've had before.

I've bought items from :
As well as my favourites :
As of last year I also started finding material in the Clip Art world and went out to digital artists and got cool things like silhouettes. Like :

I made brownies!

This is a first for me. I bought a cake mix a while back, was just afraid to tackle it with so many extra ingredients which just sounded wrong. But today I bit the bullet, pulled out the box, 3 eggs, 2 tablespoons of water, and 200g of butter, added a little something I thought it needed (chopped hazelnuts and macadamia nuts), and then went to work. After I baked it, it said to let it stand 5 minutes and then put it on the stand. Put it on the stand? How the heck do i get the whole thing out, when it didn't ask me to use oil or baking paper?

I went online to Donna Hay (she really does know everything) and watched her make her brownies and saw her cut hers out and then put them on the cooling tray. Ohhhh... now I see.

I went back to mine and did the same. Amazing that they all came out without a hitch!

I then dusted them with icing sugar, and took photos! Got to record this moment.

I'm excited I suppose because I've never made them before. They don't show up in any of my Nan's recipes, but I've always loved them. I just hope they are all edible!

Not bad for a first attempt

ARTastic June 2014 DT

Here's my June 2014 Design Team layout - and my last for the ARTastic Design Team. I've decided I've just got too much on at the moment and something has to drop off. Unfortunately that looks like ARTastic Design Team to start with.

I found this one the most difficult of all the challenges so far - very Aussie, very yarn-like and could find no parallels at all. And the colours in the example VERY difficult. So, I focused on the Aussie component of it in relation to myself and my art. (yes, I paint in my spare time as well as scrap).
