I know I have been absent for a while again 😦 but there is a good news, I started crafting in a new direction! Most of you card makers may also do scrapbooking, but in my case, I have never done it before! So a few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to get my hands on it. I even bought a Polaroid camera for this purpose alone! (I am too lazy to edit photos and get prints!).
It was Eid about three weeks ago, and I decided to document the celebrations using my new camera 🙂 This particular Eid is celebrated on three consecutive days, and surprisingly, my family managed to be in three different states during those days! Today’s layout is from day 2 in New York.
Since I never scrapbooked before, getting started was definitely a challenge! I browsed some blogs and found my inspiration for layouts here. I loved the clean and simple layouts, and since I had been thinking of creating A4 size layouts, this was perfect.
For design/color inspiration, what better place than turn to Runway Inspired Challenge?
I loved the overlapping strokes of color, and thought it would be best translated into overlapping strips of colored vellum.
In the middle photo, my sister-in-law is wearing colorful stripes, so the vellum stripes coordinated perfectly 🙂
Oh, and in preparation for scrapbooking, I also bought some embellishments. The title was made using foam letter stickers from American Crafts, and the round chipboard and arrow sticker accents are from Maggie Holmes’ Open Book and Craft Market collections.
Even though it took me a few hours over a span of a couple of days, I enjoyed the process very much. I created a few more layouts afterwards, and I hope to share them soon!
Thank you for stopping by!
