The Path

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Good Morning. It is my turn to reveal at Scrap Stuff'z Inspired by today.  First I'll show you the inspiration photo.

When I fist looked at the photo, I immediately saw circles. Then I changed my entire train of thought. Here is what came from the photo. In a very round about way....

 I made a decision earlier this month that I am only going to work on Bar Mitzvah photos this month. It's been almost a year and the album is not finished.  I knew it would be a challenge to have a project in mind combined with this particular assignment.  I took a second (third, fourth) look at the inspiration photo. This time I saw shapes within shapes. More philosophically, I saw a path, like the path my son took to his Bar Mitzvah.

I did use a Scrapbook Generation Sketch. I chose to use arrows. They represent a path. I stamped images onto small squares, shaped within shapes. I did also use buttons as circles.  the corrugated paper has texture like the mulch on the ground.

So there you have it. My somewhat deep translation of the photo to the page. Head over to Scrap Stuff'z Inspired by and link up your project over there.
