Did you know that our Lucky 13 Circle Journal Project from last year was published in this month's Sommerset Memories?!?!?! Woohoooo!! I hope to post a pic of the magazine soon!
I have two projects in it, the Cover of my Lucky 13 Album and the page I created fro Candace McLean.
I had a blast working with canvas during our Lucky 13 Journey and created some pages that really challenged me creatively. Some of us made copies of our canvas pages to keep a second book for ourselves. Why not translate the canvas pages into 12×12 pages?
One of my favorite pages is the one I created for Elena Etcheverrry–the rich, bright blue with the white and brown accents really pops of the page for an intense effect. I took this page that I created for Elena:
And simply did the same exact thing on a 12×12 piece of cardstock that was the same blue.
The blue on Elena's page is actually painted. I taught this “copy” in my Project 12×12 Class on Going Green–we used some Martha Stewart Felt Doilies in a new way! They came 3 to a pack and who needs 3 in their house–use one for decor and the other 2 for craft projects, why not?
Just because art is on canvas or presented in a different way than our familiar scrappy 12×12 scrapbook pages doesn't mean we can't translate that to our own work! Next time you're feeling a little stumped about where to go with your page, look outside of scrapbooking for inspiration–translate a piece of art into your own scrapbook page.
