So I mentioned being a part of the community at Paperclipping. I love it there! It's so nice to have a little home on the internet to talk about scrapbooking. I also mentioned in the Christmas in July that we're doing some challenges...and that I love me a challenge!
So this is for another challenge. It's a sketch challenge with a twist: it's supposed to be about us. Here's what I came up with:
and it's based on this sketch:
I had to adapt the sketch to make it 8.5x11 friendly, which means I just lopped off the the space on the right side and moved the thought bubbles into where the circles are.
I chose to drop the journaling into a glassine envelope behind the pictures. I used a library card, ran it though the printer so the top says "quite the adventure" and then hand journalled the bullet points of the year. Frankly, I didn't want to cover up the math paper, which may be my favorite paper, ever, of all time.
I found this to be hard one for me. I knew that I wanted to use these pictures, but when I printed them I realized they were really dark...the kind of dark that meant I had to chose my papers wisely. It also rained on Wednesday, which usually I love, but it really sucked the life out of me. But in the end, even though it seemed to take 3 times as long as it should have, I'm okay with the end result. :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
