I’m fortunate to live in a very walkable city full of awesome sidewalk and street imagery that I like to photograph with my smartphone.
Line shapes positive and negative space spaces of color shades of black, Grey and white. Gravel, concrete spray paint brick stone cracked repairs asphalt sand dirt. All of this inspires me and seeks to push me into new creative arenas. So I think it’s time to make an inspiration wall with paint, collected fabrics, images, scraps of
paper, text, photos.
Last Friday I went to a gathering of crafters and worked to finish a couple of pages so I thought I would share them here
On this page I started by spraying a stencil, then adding some diecut trees along with some scraps of paper before adding my grandson’s photograph.
Melissa, November 1981
I started with a piece of marbled paper that I had made. Then using a Cricket machine I cut out some swirls and added a few embellishments since I wanted to keep it simple. I’ve always thought these photographs of my youngest to be so sweet!
With both of these pages I was concentrating on the color palette and the way my eye would move across the page. Doing scrapbook pages with other people during a craft evening is a lot of fun!
