I’m a chronological scrapbooker, it must be the OCD. All of my kids albums are done in order. I spent an entire day working on covering the last years worth of photos. I call this a scrap frenzy. In a days time, I completed 19 12X12 layouts and one 8X8.
The 8X8 layouts are always a single photo that strikes me. Most are of family members. I have my own little scrapbook just for me that I keep these layouts in.
Today’s 8X8 was a layout of my Mom. My brother has the original, color photo, but I scanned it and had it printed in black and white. Mom’s pants, in real life were pink & white checks, she wore them a lot, they matched her pink cotton candy lipstick that she loved to wear back in the day.
Since the photo was in black and white I thought it needed some bright color. The colors in the photo aren’t “true”. There’s some fuchsia and red in there with the oranges.
I think it turned out lovely, so I thought I’d share it with my faithful readers.
