Hello! I was recently looking back at my college photos (from the 1990's), and I decided to scrapbook some of them. Here is a page dedicated to a northwoods vacation that I took with my family during the summer between my first and second year of college.
I'm playing along with T is for Tuesday, so let's have a cup of tea while I walk you through the page.
My tea cup this week has a northwoods vibe, to go along with the layout. The cup was handmade by a talented artist in Wisconsin. Even though it looks like a birch trunk, it's ceramic.
Awhile back, I noticed that a trait of some of my favorite scrapbook pages is a mixture of hard and soft textures. Ever since I came to this realization, I have made an effort to incorporate a variety of textures into my work. On this particular page, crumpled and distressed layers of paper provide the softness.
Metal staples, placed in a row, provide contrasting texture.
The photos on this page are from before I ever had (or had even heard of) a digital camera, but they are still some of my favorite photos. This one shows my brother, my mom, and me on a footbridge in Itasca State Park (the source of the Mississippi River). My dad took the photo, and I love how he captured the reflection in the water.
Well, that's all for today. I hope you've enjoyed going "up north" and "down memory lane" with me in this post! :)
