noT a ScRAPbOOker

Pen and I visited ArtSpecially in the Netherlands earlier in the year and if you ever get the chance, I would recommend it. Although not a scrapbooker, I decided I wanted a more visual record than just digital photos stuck on the hard drive of the PC. I came across this fab free tutorial from Donna Downey which was the sort of look I wanted to create. I really like the feel and texture of these newspaper layered pages apart from which I knew I wouldn't be very neat at doing this so if worked well LOL

So - on arrival in Amsterdam on a lovely warm day.....
There were lots of workshops to do in between the retail therapy....

You may recognise some of the faces here......

I'm glad you aren't a Scrapbooker as quite a few of them are very predictable - I think yours is brilliant and very artistic.
