Blogging again after 3 weeks!

Well at last I'm blogging again! I haven't been well, chest infection and colds and things and I haven't been doing any crafting. I've just got onto the computer in the last couple of days and today was my first time out in a week! Feeling a good bit better now and thought I would brave the cold outside and take photos of the two recent layouts I have done. This one was done at the Kit Club in Stephanie's (Forgetmenot Papercrafts) and it was the first time I used an overlay. They were really lovely autumny pages.

This layout was made with another overlay, Prima Paintables, but instead of painting it, I used my Copics, tasted them on a spare piece of acetate first to make sure they dried. I only used three colours of Copics although it looks like more because of the Basic Grey Euphoria paper I put behind it. I liked the way you could can see through the copics to the page below. These photos were taken at Oxford Island and I had to put the journalling on the back.
I'm going to Stephanie's on Monday so hopefully will have more layouts to show next week x
