Not the usual way



My pages are almost always story driven.  I want papers and embellishments to support the story so I shop my stash after I've got the photos and know what the journaling will say.

This time, I knew I wanted to use Basic Grey's Saturday Mornings collection because I knew there were embellishments that fit a page about doing projects around the house while my husband was out of town.  So I admit that I 'posed' these photos of me in the blue shirt because that color went with the papers.  (I didn't admit that in the video!) I had already taken several photos of things I was doing through these two weeks.

The design starts by figuring out what embellishments I want to use and what to do with them.  There is a lot of stuff on this page, more than I usually have.  I like the page, but haven't quite moved to 'love it' yet.

Here's the process video:


Thanks for watching!
