Starting in March over at Memorable Seasons, we are choosing a member to highlight and each of the design team members use a layout of theirs for inspiration. Tracy was chosen for the month of March. This is the layout of Tracy's that used as my starting point: "Rain, Rain".
I really like how she had the photos arranged on her page and the title nested in the photos. I also loved how she added the pattern papers in sections.
Here's what I came up with:
I stamped the red labels and added some direct-to-paper inking in a cream color to age them a bit. Then I stamped the title in the center of the largest label with a turquoise inkpad and a brown marker. I love these little silverware embellishments and I added them with brads to work with my Thanksgiving theme.
The other two labels were stamped in the same manner as the larger title, and I used them for my journaling and the date.
You can also see some of the faux stitching I added with a brown marker.
