What makes you joyful today? I worked on this page late last night and it was one of those pages that just fell together by itself. I'm joyful when that happens! =)
The circles were cut around the design in the patterned paper (Secret Garden line by Dream Street) and tucked under the edge to give a scalloped edge look. I found this old chipboard piece in my stash (by Making Memories) that came with a Christmas chipboard pack, but decided to use it on an everyday page and dressed it up with Secret Garden rub ons and a few extra goodies for dimension and interest. Next, I cropped a photo that I took of my daughter the other day at the park to a different size (5" x 2.2") and used my printer to print out the unique sized photo. I love using black and white photos with lighter colored papers to give contrast to my page!
I love doing these 8.5 x 11" pages and think I might do more of these. So much less canvas to fill. Much like cards, which I enjoy also.
How about a challenge? Scrap a page using a unique sized photo. The photo(s) can be any size except the usual 4x6" or 5x7". Leave a comment with a link to your page by Sept. 6th and I will draw a random winner to receive a little Dream Street prize pack with some of the new releases! Can't wait to see your pages.
