More on Day One

So two posts for one prompt…good or bad lol.

I managed to get a whole layout finished this afternoon for the first prompt in the class so decided to share it.

It didn’t turn out anything like the way I planned. I wanted to use my new acrylic alphabet stamps but the ink wouldn’t stick to them and when it did they came out very blotchy. I went back to my trusty Thickers. Part of what I want to achieve with this class is to expand my scrapping style as well as improving my blogging, because until now I have just matted, layered and stuck things on which looks lovely but I want to be a bit more adventurous! I failed at the first hurdle with that today.

Despite that I am very happy with how it turned out in the end…

The title is inspired by The X-Files, as I am rewatching all my old episodes of it at the moment, and I’ve just used the photos I took yesterday from the prompt along with a screenshot of the beginning of yesterday’s post.

Onward to day 2…I have the beginnings of a layout in mind, now I just need to work out a way to do it as I don’t have a photo specific to that day but it was a pretty important event that I would like to document somehow.

Hi, I'm from the class and just started today. I was looking for some inspiration and found your great layout. I love your first scrapbook page. I really like how you put a screenshot of your blog on your scrapbook page. How many of us actually have a photo of our blog and you know that one day we will try to remember what it looked like. Great idea!
