Some old pages

In an effort to keep this blog somewhat interesting, I'll be posting some older work from time to time. It's interesting to see how my style and product use has changed, and it prevents huge gaps in posting. I know, my adoring fan loves me :D

First up is a favorite page- for both the finished layout and picture used!

The pic doesn't show the color of the pp well, but it is orange/yellow notebook style pp from Basic Grey- the lines are blue. Anywho, this was a fun layout- the only time I have ever done my journaling on the computer. I think the computer journaling fits well. I like the little twine bow I used- that twine is off of some packaging I had absolutely unrelated to scrapbooking. Now the picture, well isn't it awesome??? My friend and I were driving on the LIE one day and there was a school bus in flames on the other side. Naturally a picture was taken. This is the only copy of the photo I have- it's from pre-digital days. The pic itself is actually all crinkled from being taped up and removed from walls more than once, but it's still in decent shape.

This next layout features the one time I've used my foam stamps- sad, huh? Well, I tried some other new things when I made this- all the tearing and staples. I like the finished product a lot but likely won't do a title similarly again.

The cool parts of this layout are where I traced around the swirly design on the paper with my Sakura stardust pen (clear glitter pen), and the swirl I cut out of vellum. I'm quite pleased with how both came out!

So I hope you enjoyed your trip in the way back machine! Maybe I'll post some old cards next, although those aren't nearly as nice as my older scrapbook pages- I definitely think I'm a better scrapper than card maker!

AF #1 here! LOL! I do like looking back to see what I did in the past and seeing how Ive changed over the years. I am not a scrapper, so I appreciate all the work that goes into that part of your art.

I love seeing your stuff! :-) Thaks for sharing it with Blogland.
