May winners and June Tutorial ...

I will be announcing our May winners shortly but first I would like to introduce you to our June edition of Tips, Tricks and Techniques brought to you by team member Anna Uhras. 

My June Layout ...  "step by step" by Anna Uhras

Hi Everyone!

Anna here today showing my "step by step" making my layout this month.

I think this is pretty typical "my way" of scraping.

I start choosing papers and make my layers to have under my photo.
When I am satified I often staples my stack of paper.

Next layer for me usually is some ordinary thread, here black, white and some green.
I also added a cluster of banners.

Time for the top layer of photos and here also a PL-card. 
Usually I use 3d tape to mount my photos.

Now I put my stack of papers/photos away for a while to prepare my background cardstock.
This time I used some distress ink on a plastic mat, sprayed some water and just stamped it randomly over my cardstock until I was happy. 
Sometimes I just splatter some color mist instead. It depends on how I feel.

Time to mount my stack of papers/photos and for that I have used some double-sided tape.
I decorated it pretty simply with two fussy cut arrows and my title. Used my sewing machine over my title, I love that effect.

Usually I also do my journaling with my own handwriting even if I really do not like my own writing but I think it may be a nice memory for our kids someday.
Well that's how my layout came out.

And here is the result.

Thank you Anna - I just love this page :)

and now onto our May winners .....
