I liked this sketch right away.... it uses more than one photo! I gotta be honest, I may die in this SYAO challenge not because I can't get the page done, but because most of them are one-photo sketches and I have about exhausted all my single photo page layouts I have for all the albums I'm working on... guess I'm going to have to start getting creative :)
What I came up with this week:
See how I snuck in that extra photo as the title? I love taking photos of the signs of places we visit. I always try to take a photo of the sign first It serves many functions:
- Make sure you actually remember where those photos were taken
- Breaks up the photos in your files easily and simply
- Gives you the right spelling
- Gives you the option of using a sign for a title! I do this quite a lot, but not always.
I also try to take photos of wordy signs when I want to remember all about something, and then I can use those as journalling. Likewise, keeping all the pamphlets is helpful in case you want to add something special to your page! I have something top secret planned for all my Hawaii pamphlets that I hope to reveal soon!!
How did I do on the challenge? Well, I used: fabric for the two flowers, ribbon, 3 flowers, a transparency (on the middle photo), 3 patterned papers and chipboard buttons. My technique was heat embossing, which I did using a Momenta stencil GS-165 to make the hibiscus flower. I also used Festive Berries and Wild Honey distress ink, and clear embossing powder.
