Ok, a camping holiday and an ensuing rubbish cold, sore throat and sinus infection have conspired to keep me from starting my album.
I am “soldiering on” and have managed to complete the title page and entries for the 1st-3rd. This was after a major re think about how I was going to add my pages.
When I saw the 12×6 album I was excited to work in a format that I hadn’t used before but I fell at the first hurdle.
I had cut lots of paper and card to size ready to go in the album but when it arrived I was disappointed by the size of the ring binders, they are only 3/4 of an inch in diameter.
A string of expletives were uttered under my breath whilst I cursed the disadvantages of shopping online.
SO – I would not be doing a page a day as I had intended as 30 sides of, even minimally embellished, paper would simply not fit comfortably in this album. I opted for a 12×6 title page and then entries that will either be 6×4 or 6×6 depending on how much I have to say, so that 2 or three entries can then fit per page.
Right so without further ado I leave you with my title page and my entries for days 1-3
just in case you were wondering I am only going to follow Shimelle’s prompts directly if I get stuck.
Simple title page, scraps of patterned paper, some very old 7 gypsies gaffer tape, my own word art design on a paperchase luggage tag, a really really old paper ticket and an arrow photo turn.
First page 1st – 3rd still not sure about this it looks entirely too busy to me, too many words, but as I explained I started this task “sans camera” for the first few days!
Thanks for looking
