|Some stamped text: I invested in some new letter stamps (get them here) and I used them loads! The above photo is a 12x12, there were more throughout the album but I this is one of the few that I did anything too - I wanted to keep a lot of them as they were and let the photos speak for themselves!|
|I love this Bicycle stamp and it was perfect for these photos of my best friend, Sabrina and her sister posing at a Park&Ride stop! This was one of the first pages I did and it also gave me a chance to play with paints too|
I decided to keep the colour scheme to just red and blue for this section (all British and that) and I'm pretty happy with the results. There are some things I would probably change in hindsight, but I don't want to dwell on it too much because it's all a learning curve and I know that I will appreciate the memories anyway when I look back on these pages!
|I got a set of photo strips from Inkifi for another project so I decided to also get one made up of some selfies we took during lunch. I stuck it on a 12" 'background picture of the restaurant that we visited!|
|I changed up the paint colours for the M&M World (because it was such a colourful place!) but kept the same style- bold patterns and borders around some written parts (like below) on the pocket cards. I did write on quite a few of the 4x4 photos, I used ABM's Messy Pens because they dry really well (and are apparently acid-free)|
|These phrase stamps are from a 'Keep Calm and..' set so I just repeated the pattern over the whole pocket card with blue and red/orange ink. I like how imperfect it turned out, it looks exciting and chaotic- just like our weekend!|
|Another page with some red and blue pocket cards. The 'Another Year Older' stamp is from Hobbycraft like a lot of my stamps and the camera (which is my fave) is from a free kit I got with the online course!|
|For this page I stamped a film reel border on some smaller prints of us in Green Park (3x3) and trimmed the excess, then stuck them on this 12x12 of the park. I think it look it turned out pretty well!|
Now I'm working on the second album task, using acrylic paints which is going to be some pages from the recent Easter Party!
