Just a couple of things to share today. This first project was my contribution to the Pink Paislee blog this month. The blog is awesome. And the design team is always posting new projects. So check it out if you want to see some great Pink Paislee stuff.
Anyway, I used the negative space from the die cuts to make this. I knew that it would be a great frame for some photos. I added lots of other embellishments including stamps, stitching, die cuts, jewels and chipboard. Then I glued the frame onto the green paper. I painted a canvas and adhered it to that. Finally I added some paper strips along the side. Here are several shots...
This next project is one that I did recently using an old photo of my mom, Albert and I back in 1970. Here's the journaling: Family excursions for the Gervais family always included a stop at Howard Johnson's. In 1970, we drove from Long Island to Mexico City. Stopping at the orange roofed motels is one of my most vivid memories of the trip. I loved the pool, the ice cream and the blue and white checked waitress uniforms.
I used a variety of patterned paper to give it a 70s feeling. I stamped on the felt and did lots of stitching, too.
This is one of those pages that I just love because of the topic (and the fun products, too). I plan on hanging it up in my scraproom.
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
