LOAD 1 / Summer Lovin'

Sunday, February 3, 2013

Weekends.  Weekends are not for free time for me....so even though I have 2 LO's finished from Friday, this is the first chance I've had to sit down to write about them! One of them anyway...

It's Feb, which means my annual attempt at LOAD.  I got day one finished at 8pm.  The prompt?  a wordless page.  Use products that enhance the photo so words are not necessary. Yeah, you try that.  It was hard.  So I decided to challenge myself to create the mood on the page, but then I added a title and journaling afterwards.

Anyway, I was so happy to be able to use a sketch #99 from Sketches in Thyme. I loved this sketch when I saw it. Of course I had to use my signature 4x6 instead of smaller photos.  It worked out well. I  also put my own spin on Frosted Designs weekly challenge to use at least one heart and the word love  on the page. I'm not one to do pink and girly Valentine pages.  This is for sure different.

This is how it looked when I added it to the LOAD gallery. (like I said, 8pm, so very nad, very dark photo).  Happy photos needed some bright happy products. I think I accomplished this.  Lots of Washi Tape, bright background and fun bold colored polka dot paper.  I thought about creating a sun, but didn't want to fight with the banner, so I just created the twine circle instead.

I added a title and some journaling. I couldn't just leave it alone....

Supplies: CS-The Paper Co 
Washi tape-Recollections, Queen & Co, WRMK, 7 Gypsies
