I've still been working to catch up on my scrapbooking. I'll always be playing catch-up...I think that's the nature of scrapbooking in general. Life keeps moving fast forward and I try to capture moments of it in my camera and then put it on paper for all posterity. However, by the time I've put one event in the books - 4 more of happened! Lol I just LOVE it! It's never boring, always special, and always new and dynamic.
The other day I was working on my daughter's school year's album and I found this stencil I bought in the past because it reminded me of my daughter. I thought it would be a perfect way to do the starter page for her 2nd grade year. Here's what I did:
I took the stencil and a piece of card stock and paper clipped them together so they stencil wouldn't slide around.
I then took my chalk colored pencils and filled in the stencil. When it was done I did some blending in areas by rubbing it with my fingers. *Sorry couldn't resist another shot of my tulips from the other day!*
No matter how pretty the girl - she always likes a little "embellishment" right? So I glued on a lace & flower "headband". I then made a little tag to mark the grade and added the beautiful photo of my daughter! (this is from the '13-'14 school year)
