Scraplifting is a Challenge

Snake Charmer Scrapbook Layout by Alicia Redshaw

This post has been in my drafts folder for a few weeks now, and I just haven’t seemed to stop long enough to finish it off.  So here goes and lets hope I remember what I did.

The layout is actually a Scraplift of one created by Suzie Fauvrelle and published in Australian Scrapbook Ideas #22.  I am not particularly efficient or good at Scraplifting as I find it a bit restricting and hard to start, However I have discovered that if I make a sketch of the layout and work between the sketch and the original layout I breeze through the process.  I did find with this layout that I got to the end and had to add a couple of extra bits and pieces to get the balance just right.

I have created this funky lettering by sanding some covered chipboard Thickers before dabbing them with Tim Holtz Distress Stain (Vintage Photo).

I had a great time layering lots of bits and pieces on this layout, including ready-made diecuts, metal embellies and diecuts I created with my Cuttlebug.
