I set a goal that I would finish one month per week until I got caught up on this journal. We-l-l-l-l….that didn’t quite go as planned, but I’m getting closer!
Page Ingredients: gesso scrapes, tinted matte medium (hit the link for tinted matte medium recipe), paint circles, bubblewrap stamped, tissue paper
All I had to work with this month was photos, so painting and collaging the backgrounds gave the pages more interest. The great thing about this was that I didn’t feel as if I had to do as much embellishing. I might keep this idea going.
Also, this ended up being a great organizing tool because I knew exactly how many pages I needed too work on instead of going back and counting throughout. Ending points are awesome!
I punched a circle from the page he was working on as a backdrop for this photo, I don’t think he’ll mind. And I’m happy to say that I was able to get the crayon marks out of my carpet!
I used some vintage ephemera on these pages to fill space, and because they were handy (it’s called desk clutter). Another different element that might stay going forward.
If you think this is a cheeky way to show off my grandson, your half right…well maybe 75%.
I didn’t want to split up the photos for the following page spreads, so this one little photo got it’s own page spread. A fun opportunity to have a little fun with embellishments.
That’s it for February. I still have some more pages to do, but it will probably be more of the same.
I have a new journal waiting in the wings for March, and I’ll share as soon as I get that month done.
As always, thank you for visiting,
Have a great week,
