Two Page Tuesday: Shapely Journaling

My assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Design a page incorporating journaling in a shapely way that's integral to the story and design. This page is about our visit to Perry's Monument on South Bass Island in Lake Erie last summer. 

Collection Featured: Simple Stories Sn@p!
The two areas of journaling are arranged to mimic our experience at the monument. First, I cut apart a 4x6 journaling card and re-arranged it from bottom to top, so your eye goes up the page, just as we rode up to the top of the monument. Next, two journaling strips span the length of the entire 2-page spread. These are placed directly below the panoramic views we enjoyed at the top of the monument so your eye can scan both photos and words at the same time.


I ran the larger stars through my Cuttlebug to give them a more textured, distressed look. A little layering, some wood veneer stars and I'm finished! You can see more examples and read the rest of the article here.

I'm heading to Mega Meet later this week with my sister and friends. Always a fun time. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see what we're up to, both at Mega Meet and cropping at my house. I'll be back to blogging next week!
