On the way back from vacation, I ask everyone what his five favorite things were. I also write my five favorites. When I get home, I print a photo of each of us and make a mini album celebrating our five favorites. Here's what I did this year:
I used some Smash dividers. Like I mentioned yesterday, I haven't fully smashed yet, so I thought these would make nice pages in a mini. I pulled out all the smash stuff I've collected these past years and used them on the mini.
I also have another page up at WCS, this time for a color challenge by Emily Spahn. Here's the page:
I used a bunch of American Crafts Shoreline I had just bought, using a gift card from an LSS garage sale. I then dug into stash for the rest of it. Here it is:
I liked the chevrons in the color sketch, so I tried using a new Julie Fei-fan Balzer template to ink the page. Of course, I messed up, which meant additional, unplanned opportunities for creativity. I painted over the color bleed (the yellow on the far right), then used the template to cut chevrons, which I then adhered, slightly overlapping, on the inked chevrons with dimensionals. I like the effect.
Only one month left of summer--time to start thinking about what you love right now and scrap it!
