The beginning of a new week and already a third through January. Can't believe how the time is flying!
Today I want to share my title page for my 2014 scrapbook album. Last week there was an amazing sunset when I was travelling home from the supermarket, but wouldn't you know by the time I found somewhere to pull over it was almost gone. But I took a shot anyhow as the sky and clouds were pretty amazing too. I know it's a bit backwards to be starting an album with a sunset photo, but there's absolutely no chance of me being up in time to catch a sunrise and the shot seemed to capture my feelings about accepting things as they are - my mantra for 2014.
I used the colours from The Memory Nest's Make It Monday January challenge as they seemed to echo the colours in the photo pretty well. I also managed to get both the twist elements on the page - a stitched sun burst and a chevron inspirational quote. At one stage I was going to leave it there, but after walking away for a while I came back and added flexmarker shadows to highlight the stitching, a little handwritten journalling about my hopes for 2014 and buttons to frame and draw the eye down the page. Now I'm satisfied with the overall look and ready to share.
