This fortnight, the challenge is...
Edna wants us to revisit lost techniques, products, styles, etc., and show the Sisterhood what we come up with!
I dug deep... I stay pretty well-rounded by being on the Shopping Our Stash design team-- I try to use what I have and push myself to try new things and incorporate older techniques... but this was a GREAT motivator. I started paper crafting via scrapbooking even back in high school, over 20 years ago. As a mom, I do a book per year for my girls... but I am now two years behind each... so that's FOUR BOOKS behind! Ahhh! It's enough to make me want to just quit my day-job!
Anyway, so I got super-motivated by this challenge and took over the living room: four mostly-empty scrapbooks and hundreds of pictures and memorabilia (report cards, certificates, travel stuff...) everwhere...
Here is one completed page (not so snarky, but it met the need of the challenge!):
- Striped paper by (damnit... can't remember... I'll add it later...)... CARTA BELLA PAPER COMPANY, 2013
- Black paper by American Crafts
- Blue paper by DCWV
- Red letters are Thickers
- Black dots by Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite
- Pictures loosely lined with a DecoArt paint pen
- Pictures printed at Costco
See you over at SOSS, and I look forward to seeing your "lost and found" techniques and styles or whatever you are revisiting!
