The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Another Shadowbox Layout

Heritage Layout now in the Shadowbox

Hello Blogging Friends...

As promised on the last post, I said I would post this Shadowbox layout next to show you all the sample we will use, as well as a couple of other layouts, when a group of us get together to design a layout this weekend at the Fall Flurry Crop in Walford with OC Scrapbookers.  The activity is call Bring It-Make It-Take It and it will be set up cover part of the day so that participants can work with several tools and techniques to explore how to design and layer up paper and embellishments to complete a dimensional layout ideal for framing with a Shadowbox.  These types of layouts are excellent for gift giving.  As the holiday season rolls around, think of all the themes one can choose from to make a dimensional layout for a Shadowbox featuring one or two pictures.  Of course, the sky is the limit!  The activity that I have planned for Saturday at the workshop will focus on 6 participants so that we keep it intimate enough to be able to focus on questions and be comfortable enough to work with the Cricuts and die cutting machines. 
I plan to spend time, answering questions and providing my experience in various methods and techniques.  We will be playing with various tools, experimenting with different techniques and methods that participants may have always wondered about and have wanted to try.  Anyone who is attending the weekend in Walford and want to join us, you must register with Deb at OC Scrapbookers to get a seat. The first 6 to register will get a spot as space is limited to 6 participants.
This picture has my Grandfather and Grandmother in it with my Great Grandmother and two of my Aunts when they were children.  This picture was taken in 1938.  I am looking at a few heritage pictures  from both my side of the family and my husband's side.  They are fun layouts to design and I'm looking forward to this weekend's group as we put our head's together and design an awesome layout.
