She challenged us to make a layout inspired by books - whether it be a title, a passage, a book cover design...anything inspired by a book. Recently I snagged a circa. 1974 set of Laura Ingalls Wilder books at a yard sale with the intention of saving them for my daughter. I started reading them again and remembered how much I loved them when I was a kid. They were the first 'real' books I read - thick books with chapters and only a handful of illustrations. I knew right away my page would be about them.
Compared to my last layout, not a ton of dimension on this page. Most of my material came from the Paper Lanterns add-on to the Lawn Party kit from Studio Calico. I fussy cut my most favorite Crate paper ever and made that my background. I used a pure white base because I thought my photo printed too yellow and I needed to tone it down. It's an 8 1/2 x 11 page because I ran out of 12 x 12 white cardstock. (Sometimes it's really handy when necessity dictates some of the design choices :) Here's a close up:
materials: cardstock: Wausau; patterned paper: Crate, Simple Stories, Studio Calico; letters: Girls Paperie; tag: We R Memory Keepers; veneer circle: Studio Calico; chipboard:, blue sticker Crate; house: Maya Road; 'remember this' tag: Scrap Rat; metal tag: Tim Holtz; buttons: MME
I hope you'll play along with us. Always love seeing what everyone links up! There is a great prize up for grabs - a gift certificate to Scrap Rat Kits - good for anything in the shop.
