Well it is another cold and cloudy day here in Shetland, so I am catching up with some blog posts. At last month's Shetland Scrapbookers I was asked to design and lead a layout which had no photographs. It came from the idea that it would be useful to have a design for the first page of an album or for a facing page to one busy with photographs. This is the design I came up with which has many places for pockets and envelopes for journalling.
I absolutely adore these Pion Design Papers and never like to cut into some of them so this was a way of preserving this gorgeous piece. The strip allows the placing of tags and cards for journalling.
An embossed vellum envelope makes room for a few more notes.
This was also a good layout for using up lots of little scraps too.
I thought I would enter this layout into the current Frilly and Funkie challenge which is Monochromatic. However, I do realise that there are a few other colours in there too! Do hop on over and have a look at the amazing DT makes - so much inspiration and an amazing mix of colours. And yesterday Nicole posted a great tutorial for using Texture Fades.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
