The sticky up plants
I had so much journaling I wanted to include, I decided to print it directly onto my background, leaving me the lower part of the page for my photo and to provide some balance.
I achieved this by using a long, panoramic style photo which I cut down from a 5x7" print; and then some layering with cardstock and patterned paper, and a number of D-lish Scraps embellishments. In my layers I have used a sage Coloured Doily, kraft mixed size Shipping Tags and a black Bitty Bag from the rainbow chevron pack.
My embellishments include .. a black Mini Wooden Peg, Freckled Fawn Wood Chips from the arrows pack and a Flair Button from the 2014 Script Words pack.
I love how this page turned out. I feel as though I achieved a happy medium between journaling and making a feature out of my photo for a travel album. Its good practice really .. I have six weeks of travelling around America to scrap one of these days!
Thanks for the inspiration Agnus!
