14.01.10

Yes, my SM Master's 2009 projects to share. I am not sure if it was my achievement or my shaped layout that received a HM so I won't share either of them until I find out.

ETA: Thanks Michelle for letting me know it was my achievement layout. Wow, a bit surprised as I thought the journalling wouldn't read well when shrunk to fit in the magazine. Interesting.

So then, here is my shaped layout. It took me ages and I agonised over this layout the most.




I beaded the flowers down the bottom, it was the first time I had done anything like that and I quite like the way it turned out too.



Here is the double. I find this layout tremendously boring but I wanted to create a balanced layout using big photos, I think they are about 5.5"x3.5". Just click on it to see the full layout.



My mystery poject which is an altered book I did for Steve. I will tell you now, individually gluing together 246 pages of a book is not fun. Also cutting out about 200 of these pages to create the recesses was equally not fun. A not fun project, but I love it to bits because it is Steve all over.

















I have some more 365 photos to share, but the post is already image heavy enough as it is. I can't believe I am still keeping up with it also, it's as if I am enjoying looking for stuff to photograph. Who'd have thought?!

    Oh wow Beth - that book is amazing - what patience, but it paid off, its a one of a kind. And I absolutley love that beading on the butterfly. I can totally see why they considered your entries for the Top 10. Isn't it funny how they choose some of our 'not favourite' ones for HMs?
