hello Gold Coast

Finally after settling the homefront, I can get back into some scrapping, sort through photos from my trip.
It was a fruitful trip... the weather is really cold there... thankfully some days we get some sun.
I hope to post some pictures of my trip later.
As the usual scrap-a-holic I am, I headed to a newstand and bought a few scrapbook magazines.
To my surprise.... see my find!!! My LO is this issue.... oh... what a happy moment!
Here is my LO using MME papers..... thanks SBM for choosing my LO!
Made my happy day! And finding it in Australia is really a delight.
Now back to my scrapping, here's 1 I did using Websters Pages.
"Solitude" I use a Pencil Lines sketch #193... I love love this sketch!
I stash it away and I knew I will use it someday.
Some techniques:
- use a mix of yellow and black mist (loving the black one by Heidi Swapp)
- use string and just coil it around
- use motifs from the gorgeous WP papers
- using just 3 main colors (blue, yellow and red)
Hope you like this. Enjoy the rest of your week
I will have some happy news on Monday and come back for a RAK.

What a fun surprise to pick up an Australian magazine that just so happens to be the ONE! Really, really cool, Wendy, and what a beautiful page that got published.
And I love your Webster's layout based on that Pencil Lines sketch. What a fabulous way to do your journaling, and what a lovely, artsy photo. Adore you cut work, splattered misting and twine coiling. I could look at this all day!
Welcome home from your trip!
