|Papers from Shabby Princess, Elements from Shabby Princess and Persnickety Prints|
Ok well, I guess I spoke too soon. Sometimes a girl needs a break and this particular girl likes to fall back on her hobbies in those times. Since many of my layouts are multi-page, I needed some single page non-event layouts sprinkled throughout to fill in gaps. I love taking pictures and have many interests so this should not be too difficult. "Garden Notes" will be a regular gap filler as well as "Tony the Cat" "New Recipes" "Portland Living" and various craft-related things. These are things I want to include in the scrapbook anyway so it's great they will have another useful purpose. For my 2011 cover page, I'm currently thinking about making a giant composite of all my farmer's market produce pictures. The PSU market ends mid-December so by the end of the year I should have a whole bunch and it'll be one cohesive topic.
For this Garden Notes, I learned how to make rounded corners in my photos. I used a great tutorial from Matt Thommes and it couldn't be easier. I really like the vintage-y, slightly faded look of the papers and would like to find more little elements. I'll have to look around a bit and see if I can find some pushpin/nail/thumb-tack elements because they would look great here (Update: found 'em!).
