In bluebell fields
I'm trying out a new feature from Blogger in post dating a couple of postings. Yes folks I'm on holiday, and currently sunning myself in Greece, but here's something I prepared earlier!
A few weeks ago J took me to a bluebell wood, amazingly very close to where we live. He had stumbled across it when he was out running. It was the most breathtaking sight, and deserted except for an elderly couple who said they'd been to see it every year for 20 years!
Scrapping it turned out to be a nightmare. I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple to showcase the bluebells. I decided to use some new Heidi Swapp ghost letters for the first time, and used Glimmer Mist to spray "Bluebell" down the left hand side. Unfortunately some of the letters bled, some were not clear at all, so I painted over the top which then looked like something a five year old would do. So I had to stick some paper over the top, and this time I resorted to using stickers (by Twelveby12). The stamps used are by Cavallini with blue ink by Stampin' Up. White felt by Queen & Co. The paper is Periphery by BasicGrey.
Check back later folks because other posts will mysteriously be appearing!
