First I picked some stacks of things I thought might make it on the page:
With a background paper from Sassafras picked and photos cropped, I began shuffling around bits of paper...
And More Shuffling
I just love playing with all the bits, don't you?!? (My favorite part, I think :)
On to the title:
Which turned out to be rather pesky!
hmmmmm, maybe somewhere else. Thankfully, Thickers don't always stick.
mmm, nopers - not liking that, seems to be floating
OK, liking that better, but the black letters had to go. I felt like they were a bit stark against the softness of the other elements. And, now that I have moved this title around so many times, the Thickers have lost the little stickiness they once had . On to the sewing machine for a red line of stitching....
OK, now I have managed to punch holes in it, but no stitching due to running out of thread! Argh!
Out of red. White will have to do.
Yes.... it will do.
Do I care about lining it up with the previously punched holes? Nope.
OK, Now, I like the title!
But, the LO still needs something. Seems a bit unbalance and bare. How bout my "go to's" of Washi, ink, and pen marks?
I love the way these elements add something to balance things while also giving a bit more movement and personality to a page. These finishing touches are always fun to add! After a few more stickers from Sassafras and Basic Grey...
Enough futzing and a bit of journaling...
I shall call it done! (Click on the finished LO to view this in my gallery at Two Peas and see a list of products used.)
I enjoy the process.
What is your favorite part of the process when you create?
