After a slighly longer break than we'd originally intended due to illness and other family stuff, we're back - with a bang! My lovely friend Laura Godfrey has joined us on the team, so if you love Laura's work - and who doesn't? Then you can now see her take on the lifts every friday night on the mojo blog.
This week we lifted Becky Novacek and it's such a pretty page:
Sarah did us a fantastic sketch:
And here's my take on the layout:
Unfortunately, as is usual with scanned images you tend to lose some of the pretty details. I think Becky used tissue or mulberry paper behind her photo, but I wanted to use a sparkly transparent piece I had, as the picture is of Jenna on Christmas morning kissing her new dolly and her Mum said she loved ripping all the pretty papers up so was trying to get a feel of that :-) I scrunched the piece up to make lines and angles so the light would reflect off them better, and attached it with spray adhesive, scrunching it a bit onto the background. These photos show it a bit better.
We watched the final part of the Anne Frank series last night and I ended up in tears. I think I found it especially moving as we visited her house last year in Amsterdam, and could see it all in my head as I watched it. There was a chilling photograph taken from an upstairs window of an innocent mother with her 3 small kiddies being herded by 7 Gestapo with guns.... it's hard to forget an image like that. Having just read the boy in the striped pyjama's I think i'm feeling a bit sensitive to it all.
Time to read/watch something more cheerful I think, the weather's depressing enough!
Anyway - I have a heap of things to do so enough from me - have a lovely weekend all!
