Bad Girls' Top Designer 2008 - week 1 class

for the week 1 class on Layering over at the Bad Girls Top Designer Academy 2008 .

Had a lot of fun putting this together altho' I seriously didn't think I would have made it past the first week - so much awesome international talent in there ! So inspiring !!!!

Since I'm not about to fly over to the US anytime soon for any scrappin' classes thought I'd have some fun learning online at least !

The hidden journaling :

1. I was never known to be artistic all my school life.

2. My current motto is : Expect the Unexpected .

3. My fave # is 7 !

4. I started papercrafting in my 30s .

5. I love Josh Groban !

6. I can't live without instant noodles .

7. I have never been to the US ! yet !

Had a bit of fun with my handy dandy ATB paper tagger , a bit of tulle , pearl stamens , some AC moda bella - stuck to being me as much as I could - which is to say I had to throw in some KI Memories Lace & try out some die cut shapes somewhere !!!
Love it that these die cuts have more than one life when we can trace them out as templates !!
& give old stash /pps /ugly paper a new life by transforming them with the latest die cut shapes or create your very own if you can !

Wow! Amazing work, Pearl! I have also used alpha negatives to make the most out of my chipboard! They are very useful and pretty! Have fun and don't doubt your talent - the people participating would definitely take you seriously as an international scrapper of note! X

All the detail on this page is truly amazing, Pearl! I love the tufted tulle and the heart piercings on the lace paper. It was fun to read those little insights into your life, too!
Have a great day, girl!
