Here in the US it is President's Day holiday weekend, and lots of people have today off. Not me, but not complaining since in 5 days I am on VACATION!!!! Can't wait.
So my last vacation trip was this past summer to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I am wrapping up my scrap journal pages from that journey...been working on them off and on since the end of the summer. Yesterday I made a couple of pages that I just loved the results, so I am going to share those with you today.
I had those photo of this egret...with a bit of egret shadow. I wanted to make it a nature kind of page...and I am very happy how this turned out. I started with white watercolor paper and attached an old book page to it. Then I added some 7Gypsies paper tape with the black horizontal stripes. Then I added a die cut shell (Cuttlebug) and a small white die cut shell (Sizzix). I have these Hero Arts feather stamps, and I stamped them in black Staz-On on acetate. I trimmed them down and attached them, and I love the results. Finally I added this little pin design from Darcie's.
Oh and I forgot, the stamped saying at the top from an older Tweety Jill stamp set.
Here's a close-up. Ignore the shadow lines- I took these photos on my window sill and there's a bit of a shadow...time to wash my windows (eeek!) I guess.
This page I made because I wanted a little pouch to hold my travel guide brochure. I used this cool textured craft colored paper that I recycled from some packaging that some supplies that arrived in at work.I tore off a piece and taped down the edges...then added this paper tape. On the left edge I added some Stickles blue dots. I also added this 7Gyspies tag with the edge riped off, some baker's twin and a couple of art stamps by ArtChix.
Here's a close up of these images too.
So if you're enjoying a three day weekend, I hope it is great. Even if you're not...have a fabulous day!
And thanks for visiting my blog.
