Scrapbook Layout - SCHOOL ROCKS -
I have been busy trying to organize my scrapbooks. I love to keep them in chronological order, so once in a while i have to sit down and organize them. Well, after all the organization, I realized that I have not shared much of my work on this blog. So slowly I will start to add them in.
The first layout I am sharing today, it is rather simple. I created this page to remember my kids first day of school (my son is in grade 10, and my daughter in grade 8). Since both my kids are teenagers now, I wanted to evoke the sense of school, without being childish, so I thought of an apple.
First I drew a simple apple outline on a Heidi Swapp patterned paper, and started to fill it with some word phrases about school.
|The word phrases repeated on a 12 inch strip, so cutting it to fit within the|
frame was key to the design.
To fill in the empty space in between the word phrases, I used small strips of washi that were cut to fit within the frame of the apple. This layout comes pre-Silhouette Cameo, so i free-hand cut the apple on white textured card board with an exacto knife and scissors (I saved the apple cut-out for another layout which i am posting right after this one) Also, I cut a half and inch border around the card stock, so that you can see the patterned paper mat. I attached the cut out to the page, and added a few embelishments to create a visual triangle.
|I love tags and labels, so I try to use them on most of my layouts.|
Finally some lines of journaling and a few drops of black color shine complete the page. Check the next entry to see what came of the apple cut-out...
see you soon...
