A Scrappers Weekend

Yvonne, Ginger, and Sheryl

What happens after you get rid of the wicker furniture set that was taking up space in your basement? Well, if you're the crafty sort, it's another excuse to throw a scrapbooking party! Four of us got together again for a Second Annual Basement Scrapbooking Party to socialize and get caught up on projects before the Western WA Scrapbooking Retreat this November.

I worked on another Cloth Paper Scissors magazine contest called "Home Sweet Home." I don't like my final work, so I'm unsure if I will start again or not. We'll see what this week brings. Below are the two houses I finished during our creative weekend.

Character in Color


I worked hard on those hands! I finally found the path from "girl with big hands" to a girl holding a butterfly in perspective. I played around with some different techniques on adding shadows...but ultimately liked the way I've been doing it. I'm sticking with what works.
