This is what is left from Camp Auntie Betsy. 27 Hours of wild crazy fun with 3 wild crazy girls.
This lovely sil made her first layout:
and then exclaimed "I LOVE scrapbooking!" (yea for me!) And isn't she CREATIVE?!
this little monkey is quite a natural when given paper and safety scissors:
and the other sweetie pie made load of pages, but bad Auntie forgot to take a picture. But lots and lots of pictures were taken here:
and now I think I need to recover and sleep for 27 hours!
But before I leave! A little bit of my experiment misting eggs:
I blew out some eggs, put them on skewers and stuck them in the ground. I mixed some favorite mists of Jenni Bowlin for Ranger dye ink and experimented with distance, amount of dye. I just LOVE the natural speckled look to the eggs you can get with mist.
Since egg shells are not entirely porous, it can be a bit difficult to get the ink to dry. The best methods I found were: 1) sandpapering the egg lightly first or 2) using the ScrapPerfect pouch on the egg. I sped up drying with my heating tool also.
Then I wired and decorated the eggs simply - a bead, button, ribbon, JBS Charms . . .
thanks for coming by!
