This is a bit of a test run to see if I can follow instructions!!
Just read Blogging 101.
Well I managed to get there and my draft was there!!!
My very first blog post! I couldn't have done it without
Louise’s 101 lesson. Thank you so much.
I got good at re-sizing using Paint and ‘saving as’ I just
hope the quality is ok.
You have mostly seen the cover that I made using heavy duty brown
card that is used in commercial pattern making. This was courtesy of my
daughter. I applied the base coat, then
crackle medium then the warm white paint that crackled nicely.
Then I stenciled letters and some patterns in colours I
like. Then I attached the sari ribbon and some embellishments. I printed the
words and embossed them to make them 3D. And the back cover has some stenciling as well.
Next I did the first page which was a lot of fun.
I loved the idea that Louise had for the pockets at the back
and shamelessly copied( thanks Louise!) But maths is not my strong suit so the
spacing was a bit wonky. But hey it
I have written a blurb in the front and some lists of
prompts (that probably wont be needed, but I thought I should include some of
my inspirations that helped me to choose my theme.
I think I will leave it at that. I am exhausted from the stress. (a picture is round the wrong way!!)
