I was challenged by the lovely Gybogi http://scrapingthemoment.blogspot.com/ from Hungary, to a game called "from what a beetle comes." It makes a fun translation lol The challenge is to display my first layout. I started out in scrapping 15, yep 15 years ago! Can't believe it really. My first layouts are so funny to look back on. I'm sure my kids could do a better job.
Sadly I don't have access to them as they're in storage. So I did the next best thing and found some of my old layouts on line at one of the on-line shops where I used to be on the design team. Luckily I found these still in the gallery. They're all from about 5 years ago. I think there's still plenty of similaries to my style today. I'd love to know which one is your favourite.
So here we go.lol
The first two were layouts I did using my waxing technique. This first one I altered the pic before waxing. The technique is a bit rough on this one. The theme was to scrap a page about what your legacy would be when you're gone.
Journalling: They are my eyes to see
They are my voice to speak
They are my heart to love
They are the very best of me
They are my legacy.
I love this one of Jera throwing stones. I did it on a canvas. Love the wax effect on the water and rocks.
The theme for this one was "My Home"
My journalling reads: No bricks and mortar will ever hold my heart.
No material possessions will ever be my love.
Wherever my heart is that's my home.
This Christmas pic is 6 years ago. Lots of paper tole on this one. Such a cute pic.
This one was done as an introduction to the team.Journalling reads: Who am I you may ask! But the answer is not so simple.
I'm many things to many people. A mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend.
I'm a Midife, a Teacher, Astrologer, a Scrapbooker, a humanitarian.
But my greatest achievement and deepest love is as a mother.
This one just because I love that beautiful face and those sweet curls. Got no idea what I was trying to do with the inking at her mouth.lol
OMG this was a family tree one. Showing my arty side, lol. I painted most of this. That pic is hilarious. That's me on the far left with my 3 bros and 2 sisters.
Journalling says it all.
Like a bird perched out on a limb, I have always lived my life to the sound of a different tune... when the wore florals, I wore stripes. (and a terrible spiral perm! OMG)
This one is an album for a series of layouts with reality themes.
Last one I promise. This was to show I could do a white space lo. Love that pic.
So that's it for the trip down memory line.
Now I challenge you all my dear readers.
Please let me know so I can go and laugh right back at ya'. LOL
Have a great weekend.
