There is nothing more exciting to me to see these two-dimensional pieces of art I make come to life in wonderful ways. And Laura’s page is definitely one of these wonderful ways! It’s just eye candy!
[ Shapes | inFORMS (Report Card, Score Sheet, Library Card) / Need Directions (quirky arrow) / Say What: 1 ("relax") / Say What: 3 ("Today" arrow, "Insane" title) / Life Additions: 2 ("routine") / Life Additions Weeklies: 2 (days of the week) / A Beautiful World ("green grass") ]
Here’s what Laura has to say:
I feel like I am the last person in the scrapbooking world that is NOT doing Project Life. At least, not yet. However, I have a large stash of the divided page protectors and never think to use them. I decided to challenge myself to use one when sitting down to work on my project for Kerri this month. My 16 year old, Alyssa, has been extremely busy these last few weeks with all of her school activities, soccer (two teams), band rehearsals and concerts, and normal, everyday life stuff. I thought I would create a page documenting one of her busy weeks and got busy digging through Kerri’s kits to find a variety of shapes to use. I started with the days of the week … an obvious choice, right? I choose a few arrows, along with a few different words/phrases that caught my eye (“routine” for that everyday stuff, “relax” for that one day she had a few minutes of downtime, “green grass” for soccer). When I saw the “2 Words. In. Sane.” shape, I knew it was perfect for my title, since her week’s schedule was truly insane. I used a few of Alyssa’s photos from her iPod. Since the quality wasn’t that great, I printed them on the cards from the inFORMS kit. Since the photos printed BEHIND the forms, it helped hide the fact that the photos weren’t crystal clear or in focus.
Even if you’re not doing Project Life, I think this is fabulous way to document a week of life! Or anything, for that matter. And I love how she printed designs from inFORMS over the top of the photos! Such a cool effect! And if you don’t want to print over it, try printing it onto a transparency and slide it over your pocket items.
I so need to make a page like this!
Thanks Laura! Love it!
