This was the scrapbook that I entered into a competition recently.  It got first!  I was very happy with how it turned out 🙂  There really is not much to talk about here, as you can see it all when you look at the pics.  I could go into a lot of detail in regards to techniques etc. but really all I wanted was to show you my recent project.  If you would like to know how I acheived a certain look, then please don’t hesitate to comment and I will happily get back to you.

The theme, as I’m sure you picked up, is Godly, modest fashion.  I’ve written a few tips and thoughts on this which I hope will help you all too.  It’s hard to pick out the most important points to write as I have much to say about this topic and in this scrapbook, little space to write it.  But I really do mean what I’ve said, and I hope that you all will perhaps learn something new today.

P.S.  My photographer friend, Rhesa, who does most of the photography on this blog, has started up a blog of her own.  I would love it if you could go on over and check out her blog on photography, life, craft, fashion, and more… http://mybuttonodyssey.wordpress.com/

As an interlude…

Here are a couple of cards that I made a while back.  I really like them, pretty much my style 😉

Ok, so the first card is focused around that rose image.  This is mostly how I like to create my cards.  All around a centre image.  Then the details are added.  This prevents the card from becoming too busy, though some may describe my cards as busy…?  I love lace and florals and I also believe it gives cards a lovely vintage look.  This antique photo was improved even further by the addition of the pearl detail on the sides.  The cardstock that the pearls are sitting on was punched out with a square punch and then turned on its side.  A handy tip to keep tucked away in your creative mind. 😉  The scalloped edge of the green cardstock matches in nicely with the lace.  Although I don’t like my cards being too matchy matchy, I do like a few similarities to tie the look in and create an obvious ‘theme’.  Enjoy the photos and scroll down for my description of the second card.

I love this card! (below)  This was a card that I gave to my good friend Rhesa (this blog’s photographer actually).  I like how this card is rather vintage while still being colourful.  It’s so easy to keep to boring, neutral colours, but something tasteful and colourful is always a better option.  I’ve picked out the rather unusual mustard green colour in this card and tied it in by using a matching ink around the edges and a similar coloured ribbon.  The white dots on the side are not adhesive pearls, but are in actual fact created by some 3D paint – the kind that you can buy coloured and dries raised.  I could say much more about the ripped edges, layers, lace, and ribbon, but I will let the picture speak for itself.  I hope that you will be inspired in your crafting and pick up some helpful ideas to store away in your mind for later use.  (Click on the photo for an enlarged image)

Just a quick update:  The next fashion photo shoot will be taken next week.  The next post will include photos of a scrapbook that I did recently for a competition.  My inspiration?  This blog!  The scrapbook is about modest fashion.  Included are pictures, some tips from yours truly, and a whole lot of papercraft yumminess!  I look forward to sharing it with you soon 🙂
Have an awesome weekend!  The sun is shining here today, and I’m still in my PJ’s… ooops
