breaking the rules!!!

ok so second page of the day, this time using Amy Tangerines class by Studio calico which is called stretch your kit.

I was a bit disappointed when i opened the first assignment from her as I love her products but wasn't totally in love with her scrapbook page, plus I was also put off by the fact that I thought it would relate to the new kit that we will receive this month but instead it focuses on last months kit, of which I have already used most of. 

I was not going to be out of pocket tho, i had paid for the class, which runs all month so I'm hoping it might get more inspirational, so I am going to make the most of it. I decided to do my own page based on the steps that she had laid out but with my own products and with my own style in it. 
here it is:

it uses paint swooshes (you'll love that bit Carole!! :) )
and layers of punched strips of paper... she had used one large punch which had a layered effect but I made do with what i had to hand. 
I also just received a new shop delivery and in the box, was new sizzix dies, they are kinda like nestibilities but sizzix own range. love them a lot!!
thats how I managed to stack the stars up and i LOVE how they look!!!

I also didn't have an A in the sparkly alphabet so had to replace it with a tim holtz grunge 'A' which i painted in the same colour as the pink swoosh at the bottom. I also managed to add a little of my other have product at the moment in.... the washi tape! really love it and am likely to use it to death :)

also for Aunty chris here is a picture of Elsie moo with her toy horse in her mouth last night, Mum noticed and said aww look she's so hungry she could eat a horse, so I grabbed a photo and that will be the title when i get around to scrapping it.

its amazing how big her eyes look, especially in that first picture!!! 

anyway enough from me for now...

see you soon xxxxx

    How come it always looks great when other people are brave and do it on their layouts, but not so much when I try?!

    Loving the stars too.
