You know, I never do it the same way...WHAT???? I meant SCRAP! (Minds
outta the gutter, people!) Sometimes I see a picture that's begging to
be scrapped; other times I start with a story that has to be told. THIS
particular project started with this
I stamped this paper a few weeks ago and I've been DYING to use it. So, I decided today was the day and matted it with cardstock. Then, I saw a circle I cut out a while back lying around and threw that on the page, too.
Then, it was time to choose a picture from my pile.
This picture of me, my Mom and Kea is perfect! I took about 100 pictures the night the Saints won the Super Bowl and I thought I would scrap them all using the team's colors....yeah....ummm, no! That got tired VERY quickly so I LUUUV that I'll be giving this picture the bright treatment!
I wanted to use a piece of my CHIPBOARD DAFFODILS but it just wasn't RIGHT! I'm not really a theme scrapper where I MUST have flowers on a wedding layout or hearts for a Valentine's Day page...I just go with what I feel! Sooo, the DAFFODILS don't work...hmmm! Time to pull out my pizza box!
OK! What about a few CHIPBOARD BUTTERFLIES thrown on there? But, I need three since there are three of us in the picture and I can't find the large one...DANG! Oh well!!! It'll pop up before I finish! I've chosen my title and the CHIPBOARD ANALOG ALPHABET to write that title.
UMMMM, NAH! That's just not working for me! The ANALOG ALPHABET is too bulky for this title. OOH! I know! I'll use the ANALOG ALPHABET for the "Love" portion of my title with a heart shaped CHIPBOARD BUTTON thrown into the mix:
CUTE!!! OOOH! Kea was playing with some Christmas embellishments that I got for 80% off...let me use a few of those before he destroys them all!
OH! I forgot that I wanted to outline my painted circles with my white pen!
I love when I can use stash on my projects...makes all that buying seem worthwhile...ya know? So, I decided to throw some eyelets on this page, along with my newest obsession, twine.
I intended to use the eyelets on the holes that I would string the twine through but...ummm...I forgot! So, I used them instead in the centers of the doilies.
And my large CHIPBOARD BUTTERFLY? In the words of my Keanohn, "I BOUND IT!!!"
Now, on to the finishing touches like adding a piece of DENIM WRITER'S BLOCK THE GEORGE (in indigo) above my picture and punching my holes for stitching
Now, it's time to paint my BUTTERFLIES. I know what you're thinking: why in the HECK didn't you paint the butterflies before gluing them down? Simply put, sometimes I feel like a nut...sometimes I don't! Again, I just go with what I'm feeling at the time!
I painted the title the same color as the butterflies, with the exception of the HEART CHIPBOARD BUTTON , which I covered with glitter glue.
Once I added the journaling...VOILA!
So, basically, I create all OVER THE PLACE!!! What's your scrap process?
