Garden Party

A friend of mine had a garden party this past summer and several of us attended. It was something different than we were used to and so wonderful. She had tables set with china under a tent. There was tea and punch and tons of food. I wanted the page to reflect the feeling of encouragement that was the theme of the party along with the floral theme. I am pleased with the way it turned out. I hope we all do something else along this line. It was a perfect day.

I needed a swingset to go along with this picture and couldn't find one so I made one. I hope you enjoy the file.

The tree is one from the Silhouette program RoboMaster. I just inked the grass in. I love the final look of the page.

Here is a little Cheerleader GSD.

3D Rose

I made this 3D Rose on my Silhouette. I only have the GSD file because that is all I use or know how to make. I did a top layer and a bottom layer. In this example I did the bottom layer of the flowers in a darker yellow and the bottom of the leaves in black. I then chalked some highlights on the leaves and low lights on the roses. I will say that it is detailed as each layer has 20 pieces. But the final project is worth it.

My First Blog

I have no idea what I am doing or why I am doing it but everyone seems to have a blog so here goes.

In case you were wondering, "Scraptist" is Scrap Artist. Now, you may think that is very presumptuous of me but not really. I am not a artist in the sense that what I do is WOW OMG she is a wonderful artist. No, I am a scrap artist in that I try to create pages that tell the story of the pictures while being pleasing to the eye. I would say I am a minimalist scrapper. By that I mean I do fairly simple pages. Not a lot of overlapping or a lot of fullness. I do love those pages but when I do them they seem to look junky instead of beautiful. I feel that everyone has their own scrap style and I am just not a "full" scraptist, just a clean simple scraptist. I am more like the painting of a single daisy not the Mona Lisa.

I LOVE scrapping.
