My first scrapbook page!


Just wanted to share my first ever scrapbook page with you - made at the weekend. I have happily attended crops locally for a few months now where everyone has been scrapping except for me and I finally succumbed to the pressure! 
I decided the best start point for me was plain white paper - I added tissue tape, texture paste through a stencil and some remnant rubs. I then got out various paints and just started playing.

I knew which photo I was using so took my colours from there. I added some die cuts (including scribbles and splats) and stamped some text.
I decided to tear all my edges and mount on some more card. I found the 12x12 pink sheet but needed to tone it down a bit so brayered some chalk paint on top.

The photo is of me, my sister and nieces taken on Christmas Day.

I would like to enter the following:
