I worked with patterns and colours that really filled the pages and I feel that I have really stepped up a level in my abilities. Now, I know ,there is a lot that can be said for inking and edging etc... but I purposely turned up with ONE BAG for the day and for the most part made myself scrap from that and well, inks were not part of the picture. Also I did not journal, but I think that, that is something I prefer to do alone and I also think I will try to take pictures of my layouts BEFORE I add journaling in future. I will keep the journalling between me and the recipient of the scrapbooks.
Meanwhile, here they are and with thanks to Beata, Marlene and Lea for their input and company!
