Saturday Scribbles

Hey! Welcome to a lovely fresh sunny morning and the beginning of the week-end. A few chores to do today and then I'm going to cut out some fabric squares for a new project. No I haven't finished the quilt, but I'm waiting for a parcel to arrive with the wadding and backing fabric, so I thought I'd make a start on a much smaller item - a bag. More about this in future posts.

Today's challenge entry is a scrapbook page for the Memory Nest. This is the last of the photos I intend to scrap (at the moment, things change) from the family's recent visit. I only used paper scraps for this page and built a messy stack behind the photo as a starting point. I then added the pointy circles and washi tape and repeated this in a smaller format at the top left. Next came the title - using the word again from the challenge - and the journalling.  Finally I splashed some inks, after covering the photo,  to help the flow of the page.


Paper: Lots of scrapsincluding AC chap & ep little boy
Inks: Mister Huey color mists
Alphas: AC thickers and others from my stash 

LSNED Day 6: I have a gratitude journal that was beginning to gather dust recently and I was thinking it's time I wrote in it again. Then I discovered in today's prompt that a page from my 2012 album has been featured on the handout - well how exciting to see that pop up! So no excuses not to write about being grateful now. Lesson learnt - remember to write in my gratitude journal.

Thanks for looking.
