Learn Something New Every Day - 2008

I have enrolled for Shimelle's excellent Learn Something New Every Day, as I enjoyed last year's so much. Although it doesn't start until September 1st I have been busy preparing for the first day of term.

This year I decided I didn't want a standard 6" x 6" album, so I've created a 15-page concertina-fold book, which measure 6" x 4", and it's now ready to go.

The papers I'll be using are from the Muted Mission collection in the Now That's Funky CD, by Funky Hand

This year I intend using less photography and more rubber stamping techniques. We shall see how I get on!

Two more six by four experiments

I have quite a lot of large stamps by Stamp Camp, but I'm never very happy with just stampiing and colouring them - I just don't feel I get a good effect. However, I love using the stamped images in Photoshop and this is using #S167 [Floral Bamboo]

The second uses images from several smaller flower stamps by various manufacturers.

There were about 25 layers in each of these images, to build a texture gradually.

Thanks for looking :)

Six by four challenge - August

This is for the first 6 x 4 challenge on the Stamping Mad forum. It's for any style of crafting, so I have chosen to combine two images from Joanna Sheen's Dancing with Shadows CD, and manipulated them in Photoshop.

I really enjoyed creating this, so I may add more before the end of the month!
