I've just gotten back from a weekend scrapping with my girlfriends. I got a LOT done, starting my son's school album, almost finishing my favorite photos album, and finishing off two kits. I'll post those as I finish up this week.
Here's two pages I finished in my last week of school last week, both about my eldest:
This first one was tricky. A little over a month ago I took a photo of him in one of our last snowstorms of the year. I loved the photo, and since my son loves the currents, I asked him to list his currents to me. And then I scrapped it when it was 70 degrees F and sunny. Once I got past the cognitive dissonance of naming the page Rowan Right Now, I loved it. I used my March Studio Calico kit, adding more color than the photo shows.
Here's another page I used with this kit:
Before I made this page, Rowan told me one of his favorite colors was blue. I asked what kind of clue, and he looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Just a regular blue!" So I made the dominant color a regular blue.
I had planned on making this page about the recital, but it was his second, and I'd already scrapped the novelty of a recital for him, so I was more inspired to scrap about how playing fits into his personality. For whimsy, I cut the papers at an angle and added sequins. I curled the paper to add texture.
Just in case you're curious: the letters are acetate, so to adhere them, I add a wee bit of adhesive in the middle, then stitch them down. That feels the most secure to me.
I'll share some of my projects that I completed this weekend as the week goes on!
