Reveal time for my Scrapmatts DT projects for May. Our first brief was a colour challenge and I chose the lemon/white/red combo. I just couldn't go past doing a LO about my favourite Australia Football League team with those colours. I kept the focus on the photos with a simple LO inspired by this month's sketch at Paper Stories. I'm loving using the flags as arrows on my LOs, they are a great way to draw the eye.
The sketch, which I rotated to suit my photos:
The second brief was to create an off the page project. If you check out the gallery you will see a lot of the DT has created projects using the beautiful new release Memory Cabinet but I'm saving mine as a treat to completing during my upcoming week of work in June. I decided instread to create a mini-abum for my mum. She will be moving to Indonesia to live for a year while dad works over there and when she was doing the same thing in China she used to complain about not having any photos of her children to show everyone. I thought the mini painters tray would work beautifully as a mini brag book.
Here is the cover:
Scrapmatts chipboard use: CB3005 Mini Tray Round 01, CB2020 Vines 01, CB1190 Scrapwords 02, CB1188 Birds 06.
Here is the full thing so you can see the pages too. I have kept them pretty simple as I wanted the focus to be on the photos and also wanted to keep the pages flat.
Don't forget I'm also hosting the monthly challenge over at Scrapmatts this month. I'd love to see what you can create using Scrapmatts products and stamping. It's that easy!
