Since this weekend seems to be all about OA, I decided to share an OA layout on Green Crafting today. The layout you see above is called "Victory Parade," and it was published in the July, 2012 issue of Scrap n' Art magazine. That issue had a flag theme, and my layout for it concerns a parade honoring the Russian holiday День Победы, which in America is known as Victory in Europe (V-E) Day.
|This flag bearer sticker, from OA's "Sidewalks" collection, was the perfect accent for this page. I mixed and matched letter stickers from "Sidewalks" and "Fly a Kite" to spell out the word "Parade."|
The photos on this layout are from 1995, when I was studying abroad in Saint Petersburg (formerly known as Leningrad). The journaling reads: "V-E Day is an incredibly important day in Russia. I was lucky enough to see the celebration of the 50th anniversary of V-E Day while I was in St. Petersburg. There was a parade to honor the old soldiers, and the streets were festooned with decorations. It was lovely."
|I wrote my journaling by hand, but I spelled out a few key words with Lily Bee mini alphas.|
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Whether or not your weekend involves October Afternoon, I hope it will be a great weekend for you.
