Title Page using a Kit
Back to scrapbooking with my title page for our vacation photos. We do a group shot every year on the last day. I think it would be fun to put all on one page sometime to show a comparison. Hopefully the kids are the only ones growing. :-) For now, I have this year's photo using supplies mostly from the ArtfulDelight August kit.
I also video taped this one. Typically when I do a video of a scrapbook page, I know exactly - well, almost exactly - what I'm going to do. In this case I had some ideas but really didn't know for sure as you can tell from the video. Warning: I change my mind on minor things a time or two. I learned that when I do this kind of 'seat of the pants' scrapbooking on video, it will take A LOT of editing to get it down to a reasonable length. I chopped out a lot of the glueing and some of the indecision.
There are two techniques in this - one is the basketweave I used to anchor the photo (at 4 minutes in). I'm working with a rather bright stripe salvaged from a busy print. The other technique is getting ink drops when you don't have and don't want to create a mist for a particular color. (at 7 minutes)

Thanks for stopping by today! I have another video for Tuesday on organizing my distress inks. I promise, it is much, much shorter and I didn't even have to do any fierce editing. Happy day!
