Heritage Layouts

I have been busy doing some more layouts for my parents album. I have just had some more photos printed and I am really keen to get them 'scrapped.

I am also going to run some classes in May/June about creating Heritage Albums so I really want to have more examples for the class participants.

So here are three more I have completed ...

I really enjoy the vintage look of heritage layouts, there is so much that can be used in the designs, from current trends to shabby chic. The imagination can run wild!

Till next time ...

A Quick Share

I've been doing some scrapping, getting ready for an Expo where I will be 'showing' scrapbooking and highlighting "Heritage Scrapbooking'.

I was experimenting with some handmade flowers after watching this video, Handmade Distressed Flower Embellishments, and here are the results ...

They were a bit fiddly but definitely worth it!

Here is one of the layouts I have done -

I shall have to photograph the others in the daylight tomorrow so I'll post them tomorrow night.

Till next time ...

Bruno Torf - A Garden of Memories

Haven't scanned my completed projects yet :-( Life is moving too quickly! My 365 Blog is being kept up to date though! Yay!

We visited Marysville yesterday with my Dad who was staying with us for the weekend. Driving around the destroyed town was quite a moving experience. Bruno Torf's Garden was open to the public so I took the opportunity to visit it.

Bruno was there and I really felt the heartbreak of what has been lost, but a the same time, he is determined to re-build his beautiful little piece of Earth.

Here is a moving video of the amazing garden before February 7th ...

I wanted to share the photos I took yesterday ... with signs that nature is determined to restore itself! I also think the figurines look sad too don't they!

And here are the remains of the gallery ...

My goal is to get back there in 12 months to see the changes!

So until next time (hopefully with some great shares) ...
