Hello from a very, very chilly Cape Town!
SHEESH it's icy today! Not complaining - LOVE this weather!!
Today I'm sharing my take on Sketch 9-24-14 over at Let's Scrap. I must say that not only did I REALLY enjoyed working with this sketch, but I'm enjoying making double page LO's again!! I haven't made them in ages (discounting the ones that I make on the scrapping weekends I attend).
Here's the sketch:
And this is what I worked on
I spent a day or two going through my ridiculous mounds of photo's until I decided on a sequence of shots that I really loved. These were a no-brainer! All my journaling is addressed to Isabella, as she really will be the one inheriting all my albums and LO's! We always try to create memories for her and I'm hoping this will be one that she will remember.
I have put my journaling under the middle larger sized picture of her - see below. It talks about our day out to the Castle in Cape Town. We took a horse drawn carriage ride from there to the gardens, where we spent a bit of time feeding the birds. She was both enthralled and wary of the CRAZY amount of pigeons about; she decided that chasing them about was way more fun than feeding them!
(An aside, I don't condone cruelty to animals and I assure you that no animals were harmed during this little escapade of hers!)
Here are some additional close up shots of my LO.
The title is a chippie which has very simply been chalked with chocolate brown and then embossed lightly.
I love Hessian! Here I cut a rectangular piece and then pulled out various strips throughout to create a looser, rugged effect. I love how it looks!
Here is just a close up of where my journaling has been hidden.
Thanks so much for coming to see my work!
