While I was interstate on holidays back last November, I received an email from Scrapbooking Memories magazine, asking if I would participate in a Kaisercraft challenge. Given the timeframe, and because we were on holiday, I declined the offer, albeit with thanks for being invited. Sharryn, from Scrapbooking Memories emailed me back and asked if I would please reconsider, and she extended the deadline. After discussing it with my husband, I accepted. I very nearly didn't.
That challenge in fact was the second of the Masters challenges. I didn't yet know that yet though. I wouldn't know for another week or so that I was to be announced a 2008 Master.
So, anyway the results of that challenge appeared in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 11 No 1 a couple of months ago. Only a couple of small images appeared in the magazine, so here is the entire album:
It's a bit of a clean look for me. The temptation to cover the acrylic pages with loads of patterned paper was pretty severe. But I resisted. Otherwise it'd just be any other mini album, wouldn't it? I deliberately preserved the transparency of the pages and used heaps of transparent elements like rubons and swirls to build up the layers of pattern.
Sigh. That holiday seems a million years ago as we head into Winter. We all have colds, frayed tempers. I heard so many tantrums today that I threw my own tonight. Sigh. Anyway, I'm off for an early night.
