Big Picture Scrapbooking

All of my projects posted today I made as part of the Big Picture Scrapbooking course I am doing- Dimensional Details by Nic Howard.  Keeping up so far, which is a small miracle and am very glad to be doing it.

Below- focus was on multi photos.  Not my thing usually but very happy with the result. Notice the inking up behind the photos.  Like this idea.

The canvas wasn't a project for BP per-se, just needed a LO break.  Used Nic's concepts of the week to create the mini canvas for a friend's birthday.  Was intending to use the gel medium but didn't.  Long story. All good.  Will use it soon.

This was week one.  Can't remember the focus.  Quite different for me to use circles I realise.  Dug into my stash for this one. LOL

Titles was the theme for below.  Quite like the separating idea (i.e. pot-ter-ing).  Hadn't done a washi banner before either.  I made the dragonfly during the outing (LO theme).

LOVE this last one.  The pic doesn't do it justice.  Sewing is the theme.  Stitched the wrinkle ribbon, around the border and hand sewed the button.  And yes my boys are growing up.

"You": A mini

If you want a mini album that is fairly quick to whip up and cost effective, then this is one for you.  Here's the link (thanks to Trina Mclune, who had this posted on her blog a while back):

The mini is made with one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock, and then scraps can be used for the pages.  The original is Prima and gorgeous.  Obviously the style can be altered to suit.

It's looking a little empty here- but the journalling really completed it.

Love this peep hole idea- from Trina's Smash class.

There you have it.  Off to Lyn's class this afo.  LOs using 7 Gypsies and Studio Calico.  Should be good.  Arohanui.  Sally.

I think we have had rain all week.  I might be wrong but it sure feels like it.  There was a time when the boys were younger when constant rain would have completely done my head in.  Now it just does it in a little.  LOL

So LOs 'Retreat' and 'Friends' are Lyn Jordan's class ones.  The papers/ embellies below are much more my style.  There's a big pocket in the retreat one ready to fill- now to find some bits. LOL  Vicki I think the photo of us was one of yours, thank you!

'Be':  Like the simplicity of this pp and the LO itself.  Journalling says "To my wee men- always be true to yourselves.  Always be you".  Photos 2 and 3 are by Steve Hussey.
