Speedscrap layout from yesterday


share this: facebook
Have you attended a speedscrap before. ?? They are held every Tuesday at 9pm in the DSP chat room.
Each week a designer will post some design inspiration and the goal is to finish a layout within the hour using that inspiration as you desire. You might take inspiration from the colours, or the layout or the style - There are no rules - its up to you..

Personally I love the challenge and some of my best layouts have been created during speedscraps. - its a bit of a ' let loose" of the creativity and just " do it without thinking too hard"

Here is my layout from yesterday . It was actually a year ago exactly that these photos were taken so it was well overdue that they were scrapped



Journalling reads


Known for its friendly ‘cheet cheet’ call and energetic flying antics, the aptly named fantail is one of the most common and widely distributed native birds on the New Zealand mainland.

It is easily recognized by its long tail which opens to a fan. It has a small head and bill and has two colour forms, pied and melanistic or black. The pied birds are grey-brown with white and black bands.

Fantails feed mainly on invertebrates taken whilst flying. Using their fanned tail they are very manoeuverable which helps them quickly change direction whilst flycatching. They are known to hop around upside down in amongst tree ferns and foliage looking to pick insects from the underside of leaves. Their main prey are moths, flies, spiders, wasps, and beetles. They seldom feed on the ground

The fantail is very friendly with humans . The reason? When you walk you disturb lots of insects and our fantail loves eating insects. They don’t just follow humans though, they’ve been known to tail silvereyes, parakeets, whiteheads and saddlebacks.
