So the pile of photos from the last couple months are now holding a grudge because I laid down these before them… Sometimes, you just really get inspired by a certain collection of pics and you can’t help it.
It’s been a while since I used a big photo. It’s funny how your style changes. A year or so ago, I was all about big photos and two page layouts. Now, I like small photos and one focal page. My pattern these days is a 12×12 of my fav pic, and a projectlife style spread for the details on the facing side. Like this:
The produce paper is from the Studio Calico April kit… but I really can’t say what else is… I was in organizing mode and just mixed the kit into my stash when I got it…
So I actually made a mistake when I was sewing this picture onto the background.. I’ve never met a sewing machine that liked to sew through photo paper… some less than others… so sometimes you get a little bubbling because the photo paper sticks a bit. (especially super glossy paper)
So I decided to cut along the sewn line on top of the photo and use it as a pocket for layering stuff. And this was just one of those times that a mistake ended up to be my favorite thing about a project.
And here’s the blow by blow for any craftypants peeps that are interested!
And remember, Happiness is Homemade!
Have a great week!
