    After 10 years we have decided to close the online shop. When I first set the shop up it was to bring new and different thinks for creating with which I hope and believe I've managed to do over those 10 years. However its getting harder to source product that I want to bring to you.

     So there are lots of products reduced in the shop now , our cyber doors close midnight on the 31st March. The price you see on website are the lowest they will be reduced to, there will be no further reductions.

     I will still be running workshops with guest artists ie Kate Crane and Clare Rowlands , plus I will still be a Stampin Up demonstrator ( so if you want a Stampin Up party/demo you know where I am)

   I will also be keeping this blog going with the things that I continue to create wether it's crafting or cooking 

   Finally thanks for shopping and supporting 3D Jean over the years

  Happy crafting

Julie: Scrapbooking on a neutral background

Hello again.
After a fair few non-scrapping months, I've really begun to get back into scrapbooking this year and my current favourite way to build a page is to begin with a subtly patterned, neutral background. Which is where the Lily Bee Victoria Park  range of basics comes in very useful:
They 've got dots on one side [shown here in 'Mushroom'] with a grid on the reverse and, as I love both of those styles, it was seriously hard to choose which! 
Then, on to my base I added a few scraps of InfoCrea 'Notebooks of the Herboriste' patterned paper [which was on sale at 3DJean a while back - you might still have some in your collection somewhere] and added my photograph:
You might just be able to make out above the Mulberry paper closed rose buds which I stapled above the photo, and there's a closer look at the buds here, where I repeated the design feature in the top right of the page: 
To further frame my main picture I stapled a section of Rose Organza trimming in black beneath it:
And finally, I flicked Shimmerz Inks across my finished journaling [it's always a little bit of a risk adding it once everything else is almost completed ... but it's rather freeing to just see where the ink wants to land!]:
 And that's my project for today: a multi-layered and embellished page all built up from a very simple polka-dot neutral base.

Thanks for looking!
