3 LOs in just 4 hours!

Here's a couple of layouts that were done by a friend when she came to my house to ask for "help". She was at a loss as to how to use certain techniques and patterned papers. So she brought all her "barang barang" and we had a blast that day! She was such an enthusiastic learner and she was so keen to learn! Wish that I had more friends like that.

This LO used crackling. My friend saw this technique on one of my LOs and she fell in love with it. She quickly bought the crackling medium but had no time to try it out. So I taught her how to do it and she did this all by herself! This LO is still not quite completed coz we had no time. This was already our THIRD layout!! Fantastic huh?!

This was our 2nd LO. We worked on this coz she said she didnt know how to use transparency PP. It was a lovely transparency by Creative Imaginations and we had no problems figuring out how to use it.

This was the very 1st LO we worked on. My friend saw this lovely PP, again by CI and she just had to buy it!! However, she had no idea what to do with it. It was a circular shaped PP and was a little challenging. I recalled how one of my favourite "copy cat friend" (I copy her work!), Jaz, cut out the PP and raised it to make it look 3D. So I did the same thing. I got my friend to cut out the center portion of the PP, raise it by putting cardboard behind, put cardstock and then stuck everything together. Voila, we had a totally new look! Then we just cut and cut and cut the swirls on the remaining PP and stuck them all round the photos. It was a simple way of making the LO look stunning! I love it and so did my friend
So that was how 4 hours just zoomed past. I guess it was a great achievement to create 3 LOs in just 4 hrs! And we had soooo much fun!
