New Layouts!

The southwest monsoon created heavy floods in Metro Manila.  I've been staying at home since Tuesday because the roads going to my office were not passable.  Whew!  Thank God our house was not affected and we were safe during the downpour.

To make myself busy and productive during the rainfall, I created so many diecuts and two mini albums.  But I haven't decorated them yet 'coz I'm saving them for my future projects.  Will share them with you once done.  And since I had a lot of spare time, I was also able to take photos of my new layouts which were done during our class with the Philippines' best, Iris Babao-Uy

These are the four layouts I made:

Layout 1:   Every Child Needs a Friend

I love creating the swirls and old handwriting as the background in this first layout.  We used the Derwent Inktense Blocks and I enjoyed using it.  Cool!

Layout 2:  Celebrate Today

In the second layout, we did misting and application of Texture Paint.

Layout 3:  My Little Prep

Layout 4:  3 Sis

In the third and fourth layouts, we used Distress Inks and Distress Stains.  I couldn't remember anymore which of the two was colored with the ink and which one was made with the stain.  Their effects are almost similar.  LOL!

Attending scrapbook classes have so many pros.  First, you don't need to think of any design on a layout.  Second, you will learn new techniques from others.  And lastly, you will earn lots of friends with the same passion as yours.  The only problem is that one must save enough for the materials and mediums if you want to own one.

Well, the rain has stopped and the sun made his appearance already.  Tomorrow will be another busy day and I thank the Lord once again for the guidance during our darkest nights.

Looking forward to a brighter tomorrow!  It's weekend anyway, a time to have fun and bond with the family. 

Thanks for the visit!
