National Scrapbook Day Was Fun...

Hi everyone! How was your National Scrapbook Day? Mine was fun! I completed three projects from the Big Picture Classes Celebration...

1. Use Text on a Page...
I had this page all planned in my head and text was the most important part, so it worked out great! This is an assignment for "The Self-Portrait Experience," over at 21 Secrets...
I thought about what to write on this one for over a week. I knew what I wanted to express, but couldn't think of the right words at first. The red piece at the top is an actual cover from one of my childhood piano practice books!


2. 10 Techniques, 10 Products and 10 Words:
This one was harder, but also fun...
10 Techniques: Ripping, Stamping, Painting, Gessoing, Detail-cutting the photo, Mosaic, Stitching, Doodling, Popping Up the flower, and hand-journaling. 10 Products: Patterned paper, paint, gesso, contact paper, alpha stickers, embroidery floss, ephemera, stickers, brad, magazine images.


3. Use Woodgrain:
For this one I used a Scarlet Lime kit.

There were 12 challenges in all, and they aren't actually due until midnite tonight, so I could do some more, but I'm not sure if I will, cuz I've got some other things in the works too. It was a fun day, and it felt good to do some scrapbooking again!

Stay-tuned tomorrow for a giveaway and announcement!!!
