Completed the first two pages for my mini-album for the Learn Something New Every Day class.
For September 1, I started with my blank page, the printed lesson block and a Try Something New prompt that read "cut a variety of circles by tracing around items in your kitchen."
I picked four patterned paper scraps and traced around several items in the kitchen.
Then I cut out the circles and inked the edges.
I ended up adhering the circles randomly on the page, adding my lesson block and then adding some circle rub-ons that my sister sent me for my birthday. I have not had great luck with rub-ons, however Robbie had gotten me a new rub-on tool for my birthday and it worked wonderfully. Here's the completed page.
September 1 - Today I learned: I can scrub both bathrooms, feather dust every room, vacuum all the carpet, and sweep all the flooring in the entire house in ONE HOUR IF I don't take any phone calls (or otherwise get distracted)! Thus leaving more time for the fun things on my to-do list!
For September 2, my Try Something New prompt read "close your eyes and pick a piece of paper from your scraps as your starting point." Since all my scraps are organized by color in page protectors, I chose my blacks and oranges, closed my eyes and chose a patterned paper in each color to create this layout.
