Some Dots, Some Snow and a Friend

Round 6 of Project Scarp-Away has been completed, I made it through to round 7, yay. We had to make 4 coasters which were 'dotty'. Teresa Collins was the judge for round 6 and this is what she said of my entry "this was so innovative with the tissue paper. loved the texture and dimension!!!!"
I made my coasters from chipboard, covered them with tissue paper before painting on the dots. I used 2 painting techniques for the dots, bubble wrap stamping and I used the packaging from some tulip bulbs as a mask for the smaller dots.
and here it is, the first four pages are what I used for my submission but I have made it into a mini album so have made more than the required four coasters.

Round 7 is to make a layout about a tragedy in your life. Ideas floating around my head so we will see what happens :)
Been coooold today, with a thick coating of snow on the mountain

Allison came to visit today, Elizabeth and Lucy enjoyed spending time with her

Dave's at soccer training tonight, brrr, so I might just get a little scrappy later :)

Pin It Now!
