Now, I like a good star burst pattern but alas, don't have any more paper in my stash just yet. So, I opted to make my own. Since I liked the sketch so much, I printed it out twice and opted to use it like a puzzle. Well, the bigger pieces. You can see once I got down to the smaller pieces I conveniently opted to let the photo boarder at the bottom take over. The adhesive and I were having a war too.
So, I printed this on my 12 by 12 printer TWICE. Once so I had pieces to cut out and copy and the second time so I could cheat and glue them down on!
Here is an example of what I mean...
For ease of coordination, I also grabbed two double sided sheets of paper from my stash that I have been dying to use. They are beautiful, with glossy raised accents and about camping. I can't believe I haven't used them already for something.
Now, if you are into paper conservation, this project is not for you. You cut weird shapes out of it leaving Swiss cheese paper! But the finished product is so much fun!
Here are some of the details. The page needed to be about friends. My parents have the coolest friendship ever. Now, the days when they wear matching jackets ARE a bit much...but......I thought I'd document that and use a photo we took on Lake Placid for Christmas cards.
Here are a few more details. I scanned this page in last night and saved the detail photo taking for daylight. When I saw the scan, I realized I needed some close ups of the layering!
Here is a list of the paper and embellishments I used to create this page:
Imaginesce Happy Camper series, Thermal Jammies and Fresh Air
Ribbon from the same series (I believe)
Die Cut Tree, Journaling Tag and Tent from the Imaginesce Series
Brown Journaling tag-Helen
Orange Flowers from Petaloo
Black Ink pad for edges of paper from Close to My Heart & Sharpie for between the paper
