Fun, Family Stories, and a Ritual

I have been working hard at grading papers and scrapping for my BPC class Twelve. Here's three I just finished.

The first LO is a double page spread about our crazy baseball game from last summer. I blogged about it here, and I took the photos from my post and put them on this LO. Here's what I did (click on the images to see them larger):

I used a library pocket from Maya Road to hold the tickets, which I always try to save. The blue paper, which sort of looks like rolling clouds to me, I misted with Studio Calico Heirloom Blue to make the white pattern less bright.

For interest, I stitched frames around the photos on the right and housed the journaling strips in circles of patterned paper.

My next page is about my (mostly) lovely ritual of taking my dog for a ride. She likes to ride shotgun.

I mostly used scraps, plus some mist and stitches. Love this photo of her. I took it at a light. She always gives me this look when I stop petting her.

The next page is for fun:

I've had this quote knocking around forever waiting for  a page, so it found its way onto this one. I did lots of fun stuff on this one:
  • misting with a template
  • hand stitching
  • machine stitching
  • layering strips of paper
  • using a favorite design
  • using a quotation
Here's some details:



Thanks for looking at my pages--I enjoyed making and sharing them. I'll share some Sketch Support pages later this week.

All of these are great, but that last one is my favorite. So fun!
