Is anyone out there interested in a typical day of a working scrapbooker? If not, you’d better stop reading now!! ;o)
I created this page about a VERY typical day in my life: driving my daughter back and forth to school, cutting many precious years off my life by dealing with computer/printer issues (wish that part wasn’t so typical!!), snacking, exercise, and sleep. Whew, I’m bored just writing about it!! lol But—that’s why I used lots of color on the page—to make it look a lot more exciting that it sounds.
To create this page, I cut a piece of chipboard to 9” x’9” and painted the background with lime green (ok, ‘honeydew’) paint. I then added pink rub-on alphabet letters and stamped red dots and flowers. The red dots are the flower center stamps in the flower stamp set!!! They are great for just adding random circles on a page. I stamped them using cranberry paint.
Here’s a photo of the page as I was creating that part of it (I snapped this picture with my cell phone, so it’s not very high res).
Next, I dumped a ton of blue (‘lagoon’) scrapbook colors paint all over my page and then turned my page so the drip marks would run down and around my title. I thought it looked pretty cool. Then I used a dry paintbrush and ‘flicked’ extra blue paint over my title. I printed my journaling on white textured cardstock and cut it into strips. Next I added a small strip of pink ‘cheeky’ paper along the bottom border. I backed one photo in the same paper and placed it at the top of the page, then added some more random photos about my day along the bottom. Finally, I added a cheeky clip to the top, some stickers to the title, and a few rub-ons along the bottom.
And there you have it! More than you probably ever wanted to know about a day in my life—but I do think the peek-a-boo title is a fun technique to share. :o)
Have a great day everyone, erin t.
