my fave!

Time for a silly layout!  :)

This layout is using my Counterfeit Kit - Hi May and documents my favourite meal.

Now, don't go thinking I eat burgers all the time!  I don't.  They come only a few times a year, and I enjoy them sooo much!

Washi tape, lace, date strip and staples.  When I had finished the layout I couldn't stop staring at the bright silver staples.  They were too distracting so I coloured them gold and they blended in much better.

I made my kit heavy with paper-clips with the intention of using them on as many of the layouts as possible...

The title is from the set of alphas that I couldn't use as they were.  I included them in the kit to force myself to use them.  I gave them a coat of gesso and then navy acrylic.  I also painted the rounded sided diamond wood shapes that in used in my counterfeiting and added them.  Kind of like restaurant rating stars, don't you think?!

Here is the 'journalling'.  I always say I am better at lists than writing sentences so my journalling takes the form of a list of ingredients, bullet pointed with buttons.

Now, the perfect burger has to have all of these things, preferably in this order :)
And don't be stingy with the tomato, onion and lettuce - it's meant to all spill out the sides when you try and take a bite!

I'm also tagging on another layout.  I don't like this.  I got stuck and stopped and can't progress any further.  It's been put away in an album.  Not sure what is wrong with it or how to make it better.  Please tell me you guys have ties like this too...

It's a shame because I loved the paper.  I don't feel I have done it justice.

Thanks for stopping by


  1. You are making me hungry:) LOL

    For the second LO, what about a verse up on the right.

  2. You made me hungry too and I just had breakfast! Love that layout laura.
    How about some scattered buttons on the blue horizontal & vertical lines? A journaling block partly tucked under the top right of the photo if you wish. Or balance it with some small elements top right corner of the page.

  3. Great fun layout there Laura.
    As for your second one how about some nice navy birdies or butterflies swooping towards the top right corner? Just a thought?

  4. Super cute layout and well done with that background paper, this theme fit's it perfectly. I agree with Julene with the buttons I think a cluster in the right corner and maybe some journaling will work

  5. Love the idea of the first page - great fun! As for the 2nd ... it looks pretty good, but perhaps some layering to soften the hard edge of the blue mat against that fabulous background pattern?

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
