This was one of the products of that work session.
This is the journaling:
I considered covering more of the page in sequins, but that's a little tedious and I got bored.
Using the scraps from a painting session as embellishment on a page is a new thing for me but the scraps from a cut-down painting on watercolor board are too rich to throw out. I'll be using them again for sure as I have a lot leftover.
For me, 2017 is the year of *Start with the Story*. I'm focused. Pictures, contrary to popular scrapbooker idiom, do not always tell all of the story. There's always more to the story. #tellthestory
If you are new to these parts, please understand that I approach scrapbooking a little differently than most people. I don't scrap every photo. I rarely put more than one or two photos on a scrapbook page because I believe in the importance of the story. And stories take up real estate. For me, scrapbooking is about quality of story more than quantity of pages. I rarely scrapbook a birthday or a Christmas--I scrapbook the stories I want to remember and the ones I want my guys to remember.
