Last moth was so busy, I didn't get to participate in any of my favorite challenges. Well, today I am BACK! Scrap Our Stash is one of met favorite places to play. The first challenge this month is to use a phrase from a subway art poster to do a page about family, and then use...photo corners! And wince I'm out of my scrappy groove, I needed a design push. Let's Get Sketchy Week 2 sketch is what I used to get me started.
While looking for a different old photo, I came across these of me with my grandparents when I was about 2 years old. I've been having a lot of fun scrapping pages of my childhood. It's good to get the photos and stories down. But it's even more fun to play with different colors and supplies than I usually do when I about my boys.
Photos of family? Check. Great sketch adapted to my photos? Check. Perfect title? Check. Fun papers and pretty embellishments? Yes please!
I've not been one to over embellish my pages. I like the supplies to complement my photos and not overwhelm them. However, I've recently come to really like using the "little bits" on my pages. Fortunately for me, there were lots of little bits and other fantastic embellishments in the Citrus Twist Kits I received this fall. As for the photo corners, they are not actually something I normally have on hand. I received these as part of a class kit from CKC.
Using a collection kit made all of this come together rather quickly. Having a variety of pretty little bits made the details come together nicely as well. The only thing I did not do, was add journaling. I think I will write something on the back of the page. I'm not sure what perspective I want to take.
Thanks for looking at things form my creative view. If you get a chance this month, head over to two of my favorite challenges, Scrap Our Stash and Let's Get Sketchy and join in.
