Good morning everyone:
Happy Saturday, as the temperatures dip and we are enjoying the indoors to keep warm.
Let’s make today a day of getting back to the basics.
What is back to basic?
1. Back to basic is using a few elements and creating a simple lo to tell your story
2. Using your stash on hand(mainly cardstocks)
3. Using Cuttlebug folders and dies to create texture and fun elements to accessorize your page...
The premises of going back to basic is to be able to create fun simple lo in less than 10 mtes or less.
For This Lo I wanted to keep simple, I used a paper that already contain several elements to reflect the fall feeling , from the nuts on the bottom left to the leave and swirly. I added stickle for added texture.
The mood I wanted to invoke was a snippet of Gatlinburg by using 3 pics, in addition to the focus pics . Dies used for this lo Ellison Sizzix die to cut the circles then mount them on pop dot for emphasis,
My journaling will fit right under the title on the left :)
There are days I want to create a lo but I don’t have the specific picture printed. Don’t let that dissuade you from creating the lo , and getting it ready until you have the picture ready.
For this Lo this I will print the pictures this week, then add the journaling to finish it.
I wanted to incorporate this bird as my focus element within a cluster I use another Sizzix die in my Cuttlebug.
