PL Pages...

Here are my last few weekly pages for Scrap Therapy
This time I decided to go with an all black cardstock base, and cut a 12x12 to match the inserts of the page.  I've also rounded the corners of each piece too.   Corner Cutter or (Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper)
Its a great idea to try tie a couple of photos in different inserts together by extending a piece of paper (in this case, the ones I've used have a border around them) under the first photo - to the next photo which you can see below with Hannah's award night going vertically, and Paige's camp photos going across horizontally. This can help separate two different subjects on one page.
The alpha is a diecut - and I love these as it can be any colour, any amount, any time!
( I've actually photographed the pieces on top of the insert to avoid the reflection of the plastic and it does look a little more evenly placed together once in the inserts)

Black Cardstock
Prima Printery Page Four Pattern Paper
Tim Holtz Chip Block Alpha Die
Stazon Jet Black Ink
Black Gel Pen
Red Twine

This one consists of two 6x6 inserts and three 6x4 portrait inserts.
Again, I've used a sheet of 12x12 paper, though patterned this time, and rounded the corners. The photos have been numbered to show continuity and the progress of the demolition of my old kitchen when we moved into the new house. It was a fun page to do and a record now of how my kitchen used to look with a 'tag' like effect to highlight the photos.

Week 9
I really loved the pattern on the other side of the paper used as a base in the above page, but by the time I printed out my photos (of my new kitchen going in!) - it looked like too much pattern, yet I still wanted to use it..... SO out came the paint! A lick of paint is always great to tone down a pattern, yet still see it!

Can you see that I had some brads used on the reverse sides and the remnants are showing? Keep an eye on that ..... and paint over them anyway! :wink:

And with a bit of washi tape... it covers those brad ends!
