A blog about scrapbooking with little or no artistic abilities.
What is the Accidental Scrapbook???
I started this blog, mostly for myself. I have absolutely no artistic talent and I have failed at scrapbooking
too many times to count. Now I am giving it another try with new supplies and scrapbooking classes.
I plan to document all the new techniques I learn here in this blog as a way to track my progress.
If I accidentally inspire someone else along the way, then that is the "icing on the cake."
This past Tuesday was my Latest & Greatest class at Memory Mania. This class is meant to showcase the newest & hottest products on the market. In the first layout we explored baker's twine. It seems like every company out there has come out with some version of twine this season. I'm not sure yet if it will be something I'll get hooked on, but then again I'm usually two or three trends behind anyway. The paper is the Union Square line from My Minds Eye. We used Glossy Accents to highlight the Eiffel Tower and the Camera
Love Layout - Latest & Greatest Class
The next layout we did showcased Tim Holtz's new Distress Stain (we used Faded Jeans) and Kraft Resist Paper. The paper is Le Cirque from Graphic 45. We used the glossy accents to highlight the Le Cirque title as well as the "Of My Life" words and the photo corners. We used the stain to color the kraft paper, title, and the mesh ribbon. We also used a paint dabber to ink the edges of the layout and photo mats.
