Thank you to those of you who have commented on Here and via Facebook and forums regarding my last post. I am still here, and I have been warmed by the kind words you have spoken, some from complete strangers, although in our world of scrapbooking (and general paper crafting) we are all friends… right?! So once you make contact with me… you are no longer a stranger!
Anyway, I have had these photos of my work for the “Learn Something New Everyday” class at Shimelle.com. The first page is rather ironic, as I haven’t kept up! I have done up to Sept 9th, and in only 8 pages… yep I missed one, Day 5! <tut and rolling eyes>
So here are a few of the pages, I will show the rest in the next post.
My initial plan was to make a hybrid scrapbook album, and the first page is a hybrid page. The only physical things on this page are the blue rik rak, the flower and the brad. I also hand wrote the journaling and the date. But everything else on this page is effectively a digital page.
The main album page size is just under 6 inches diameter and I’m using a blank album freebie that came with a magazine. Pages one and two are the full size.
However, pages three and four below are only 3.5 inches in diameter and they are actually based (the paper is covering) on cardstock circle sides that were holding ribbon on a reel… Have I explained that clearly?!
It was an interesting exercise working immediately back-to-back, where I had to blend in the back of things as they were showing on the other side. I stamped the white back of the green paper ring (above) to blend it in with page 3.
In the next post I will show you the next pages, including acrylic pages.
