a fine brown pen

Fiona's class

Sorry ladies bit of a delay in his month's creative department- I'm blaming Year 6 and a new baby!!! Layout under construction and will be with you very soon-promise. Sue has been nagging me! Lots of nagging but World War II has taken priority as has 6 religions of the world and a talking textile! However, I can tell you that the papers are bluey grey and cream with a little bit of brown, kind of vintage looking with a bit of sparkle! My title is 'Joseph' and I'm using a baby photo , L/O would suit black and white photos very well. You will need a 7x5 landscape photo and a dark brown inkpad-of course, also some 3D gloss, and a pokey tool.
Love Fiona xx

Mini album

Well here are the bare bones of the mini album for Saturday's class. It still needs to be embellished I hasten to add!!!It measures approximately 14cm square- back page, 2nd page measures about 14cmx 8cm. You will need a turquoise inkpad and a fuchsia pink fine liner pen. A cropadile or hole punch that will punch through mountboard would be useful, however we do have a cropadile on tool table, some small circle punches would be handy too. I used 'Crystal' Stickles to add sparkle.
See you Saturday,
Fi xx
