A few posts ago, I mentioned that a certain summery color combo had been catching my eye lately.
October Afternoon blog. Initially I was going to create a background of ribbons or patterned strips, but I decided to work with paint instead. I love the way the painted stripes overlap and blend where they meet, and how they mirror the colors in the photos.
I used the "Public Library" line on this page, layering papers, stickers, and accents behind the photos. That collection really is an English teacher's dream, though this layout is evidence that it need not be limited to pages about books. Versatility is always a plus with any collection.
I'm off to finish a page in progress. This one's for JBS Mercantile, using the July kits. I saved the journaling for last on this one, just to give myself a little more time to think about what I wanted to say. The words always come, but they don't always do so easily. Now there's a lesson learned from flowers: it never hurts to take a step back to give the ideas a chance to germinate.
