Hey Scrapstorian friends! Who even am I, actually sitting down to ramble about a layout with you all? I mean, my last post was in, what, 1936? 🙂
I won’t go crazy with details about the sketch, since you’ve probably seen the three previous versions of it. (Don’t you love how one sketch can look so different, no matter how many times you try it?) Shar, Brande, Rosa and I ended up with totally different but equally awesome layouts. (Yes, I am saying mine is awesome. I love how it turned out and we all know that doesn’t always happen!) This is definitely one I’ll keep in my back pocket for days when I’m stuck.
I have other photos from the same day of this trip, and will journal more when I work on those. This layout was all about showing off Paper Phenomenon Flight 2715 and the large photo. (I already wish I had bought two more of every piece of that paper. So good.) The white acrylic title (from a Scrapbook and Cards Today sampler) really jumps out from the photo, especially with black ink and chipboard to ground it all. (Boozy Bear makes the coolest chipboard shapes. The Etsy shop is on a break, but Treasured Memories and The Paper & Ink Boutique have pieces in stock.) I added as many black, white and grey label stickers as I possibly could, and even some white asterisks from a long time love, the Kal Barteski/Amy Tangerine Thickers. I have been hanging in to those suckers for years. (Come back later this week, and you’ll see them again. Hint, hint.)
This sketch, the crop weekend where I worked on it, and some layouts that took a lot of time and puttering may have busted me out of my scrappy rut. (Can you be in a scrappy rut when you are not actually scrapping?!) Maybe those things actually reminded me that I’ve not completely forgotten how to do this, and I am okay with that!
Thanks for stopping by!
