This time last week

Well this time last week my first retreat class was over and done with and I have seen some lovely versions being shared. It is based on a simple grid of four pieces of patterned paper, one of which is suitable for journaling, and a strip of paper to hold the title. The rest of the page is a little doodling and some stickers. The image shows mine without the journaling on so delegates could focus on the design and not my random mumblings!

Layout two from this class was a minimalist page showing how to make the most of stickers left of a sheet from a collection and a few pieces of paper. I was again super impressed with the variations of this page created.

Again plenty of doodling on this page and a hint of washi tape around the edge of the page to pull out the colours in the photo if the papers don't do it. This is a great technique if you've great photos with awkward colours in. Scrap your page with neutral colours and then use small pieces of washi tape to pick out the colours in your photos.

I'm sure the other teachers from our weekend away will be sharing their projects too over the month.
