I ended up with one very plain, very simple page (with a really fun photo that we obtained quite by accident - we bought a postcard, then went to sit outside a bar to write the postcard... and there was the very scene on the postcard). I was going to add more photos up the right-hand side, but I liked how it looked so much that it would've been ruinous to carry on glueing:
I stuck a couple of strips across the page near to the bottom, one an old adhesive ribbon, one a spotty-cloudy thing from Echo Park's Sweet Summertime collection. I cut a few tag shapes, and altered a couple of them by adding a transparent sticker and by stamping and embossing in clear ink and powder, and arranged them underneath the photo, on top of an old tram ticket. I also made a little flower bigger by adding a brad and layers of an old atlas:
The other page is a fun, centrally focused page to immortalise a great little memory - a surprise at the top of our mountain walk:
I used a lot of Cosmo Cricket Early bird stuff on this page, as well as Echo Park Sweet Summertime stickers. I added journalling around the edge for two reasons: to explain the memory, of course, and also to keep it from invading the page too much. By sticking to the page boundary I kept the page clean but was still able to write about our discovery.
I was really happy to match some of the photo's colours to the chipboard birdie:
And wanted to add some vertical to the page, which I did with a long adhesive ribbon, a stamp and a long transparent sticker:
I loved making this page - thinking about the shapes, the colours, the proportions of everything. I can feel a definite style developing...
