3 X is a Charm
A layout commemorating a photo shoot with Becky Higgins at CKU Albums, Stamford, CT in either 05 or 06. What can I say? New camera............ I hadn't gotten used to the settings yet. The album course was "All About Me" and the discussion centered around how "we", the scrapbookers are often left out of our albums, mostly because there aren't any photos of us, as we are behind the camera. Therefore, she offered anyone in the class to go out into the natural light for pictures and it took me standing in line 3 times, 3 settings on my camera to get the shot right. That photo is now my favorite portrait!
Another interesting point of this layout was I used those little pads of papers I won at CKU. You know, those 6x6 gorgeous papers? I don't do many mini books and there's just SO MUCH PAPER in those pads that I could never make enough cards with one line, so I used some of them here as colorful accents on a black background.
I am not a big fan of journaling, or atleast sharing my inner most thoughts with the entire world, or breaking up a graphic design with a blotch of type, so most of my layouts contain hidden journaling behind photo doors or on pull-outs.
The circles were created by tracing regular household objects of different sizes, the large monograms ("3" and "X") are hand cut from fonts printed on my PC on a large scale.
