Winter Day

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I thought since it is so cold on the other side of the country, I would co-miserate and do a winter page.  Just kidding. I will not pretend I like the cold & snow. I don't. 19 years in Chicago and I never liked the cold, or the snow. Especially the snow.  But I will say, my older son sure did! "Did it snow Mom?" "Is there a snow day?", were frequent questions from him.  So, I have plenty of cold snowy pictures to scrap.

When I saw the inspiration for this weeks Child's Play Challenges Craft Challenge: Paper Snowflakes, I knew it was time to pull out the snow photos and get busy.

This page didn't take too long to put together. I gave myself one hour to play and I was finished in 55 minutes, including photographing.  I took the negative space from the snowflake sticker and used it as a stencil for the mist.  I punched a few small snowflakes, glued them onto the twine then stuck on some bling.  My way of the snow 'falling'.  I cut two pieces from the same patterned paper and used both sides as the photo matte. The wave piece is also from that same paper. Since the title letters are the same color as the background paper, I outlined them with black and used pop dot adhesive.  I liked the way the page looked, so I decided to journal around the photo matte.
