This past Friday I had a small surgery (no surgery is small when they knock you out) but with healing I haven't been able to play for the past few days, I couldn't stand it any more I need to get my hands inky. I told myself OK Peggy you only have about 1/2 hour before the pain sets in...lol
So I decided I wanted to create my first page in my scrap journal, see over on face book there is a group called Keep On Scrappin and it's about creating a simple notebook style scrap booking, using only scraps and bits... I said OK only use what is in front of you. That was leftovers from my dreaming of spring project. This is what I came up with for my first page.Step 1- gather a simple notebook, gesso the first page while it was still tacky I sprayed glimmer mist and distress inks, then ran my wet brush over it all to smooth out the colors. Added some script stamp.
Step 2-look and see what scraps were laying around and I had one full sheet of Marion Smith's digital page left with strips of some other pages (small strips of torn paper love), inked the edges and of course distress the edges of all paper with edge distresser or you can use a pair of scissors.
Step 3-found this cute picture of my daughter Olivia and our cat sitting in my scrap room enjoying the warm sun that shines through my bay window (I love this picture).
