It's Friday - the start of the weekend - and I keep thinking it's Saturday! Being retired means that there really isn't a great deal of difference between weekdays and the weekends - whatever, I still don't have to get up and go out to work. I do have to work of course ... that's the dreaded 'h....work' ... but, happily, there's just no rush like there used to be back in the day. And I still haven't got used to such freedom!!!
Anyway, I've digressed long enough. I hope you are all well and enjoying your day. I have a scrap page to share today.
I matted the photo on to several layers of patterned paper that include varying shades of pink, green, grey and sand. Once that was done it was all adhered to a sheet of coordinating patterned paper, which has been trimmed down (by about ¼" all round) and matted on to a base of plain green cardstock. I then added the title and three clusters of embellishments. Here's a few close-ups that make them easier to see:
The clusters are made up with die-cut labels, stickers, punched shapes, Baker's twine, wood veneer shapes, enamel dots and Washi tape. I'll put a list of materials used at the end of this post.
So another page for the album, loads of stash used up and even a NBUS or two ... now on to the next page. So many to do and so little time :)
Thanks to all who take the time to look at my projects, read this blog, and leave comments when you can - I know you all lead busy lives so appreciate any time taken. I think too that many of you must be on holiday, either vacationing or staycationing, ... whichever, I hope you are having a whale of a time, even if it is just that you are taking time out to rest and relax and not do much of anything :)
