One Summer of Color project that I created, back in June, was DIY "tie-dyed" patterned paper. I have since used that paper. Would you like to see what I made? Here it is, a scrapbook page entitled "Saturday Pancakes."
|Supplies: watercolor paint from Angora & Crayola; journaling paper from Crate; cardstock & all other paper from American Crafts; blue alphabet stickers from October Afternoon; all other stickers from Bo Bunny; ink from Hero Arts; pen from Zig; tape from 3M/Scotch; rhinestones from Dee's Place; photo filter from PhotoFunia.|
The photos may look a bit strange, but the journaling explains them: "This is a pancake, cooking on the griddle. Every Saturday morning, S. [my husband] makes pancakes for A [our son]. Most of them are round, as pancakes usually are. But there's always one Starship Enterprise pancake, too."
If you think that an Enterprise-shaped pancake is hard to flip, you are right! Sometimes the Enterprise undergoes Emergency Saucer Section Separation. But it still tastes good. :)
I used a lot of paper scraps on this layout, including one star chart piece that I trimmed into a banner shape.
Other paper scraps added layers of interest behind the photos. The bow tie sticker is more of a Doctor Who motif than a Star Trek one, but who cares, it's all fannish, right?
The pancake photo on the left is the same as the pancake photo on the right; the only difference is that I applied a FotoFunia filter (called "Space Romance") to the left hand photo. FotoFunia is a site that I learned about from my blogging friend Elizabeth, and it's a free, fun resource for anyone who wants to add interest to photos.
Hope you liked seeing how I used my tie-dyed paper. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Live long and prosper! :)
