I haven't done much scrapping lately. Apart from a couple of circle journal pages I haven't had the inclination.
I opened the latest Up2Scrap magazine and was blown away by Lara's altered gumboots. I think it wasn't so much the art work but the idea. SHE ALTERED GUMBOOTS. That's what I love about Lara - she is an original. She doesn't always do what everyone else does.
I had to email Lara to tell her that not only did I love her idea but I raced out to our tool shed and found some old gumboots and started making some myself. (They started out black.) Later I realised I had not read the rest of Up2Scrap - it was sitting on the kitchen bench having only made it to the gumboot page.
So here are my 'boots in progress' - still lots of embellishments to do.
And the verdict from my family:
Caitlin - "You are so weird, Mum. But I want the blue one!"
Elliot - "Awesome!"
Darryn - no words, just a strange look as though I might be coming down with something!
