House Layout for Another Freaking Scrappy
It's no secret that I like working on houses. Well, most of the time. I can do without plumbing issues. This work project I'm pretty fond of. I think it's because we're nearly ready for paint and I can finally see the end in sight....or that the lawn in the back is a gardener's delight and bulbs are popping up all over. The past owner loved roses and I agree they are pretty awesome. She also had this huge patch of Snow Drops which are delightful even when it keeps spitting and sputtering snow out there. Lucky for me Anne over at Another Freaking Scrappy is asking for spring pages so I made this one so you could enjoy them too!
I really enjoyed printing a large photo on plain white scrapbook paper, adding some shimmer spray and then cutting out these egg shaped spots for journalling and my title. I then printed out a very small photo of the house on some kraft paper so it would look really old. This house was built in the 1920s and even survived the 1972 flood in Corning, so it's now on it's third revamp. I think we can get another hundred years out of it.
In fact, talking about spitting and sputtering, it's snow raining out there today, so I had to take this photo under the overhang on plastic so I could get the benefit of daylight, but not get my page soaked! My actual title was partially printed on the white paper so I could use our logo.
I snuck some clear sequins that are on a string up there in the corner. LOVE THOSE!! Almost as much as I love that pretty fabric washi...
And one more photo of the snowdrops. They won't last long, soon the daffodils will be taking over and I'll be in love with them!
Enjoy your Saturday! I'm off to help install windows and cedar siding.
