I'm getting more and more into scrapbooking again and really enjoying it. If you've seen Monday's post, you'll recognise the birdcage digi from Nana Vic's Digitals. It's one of the images supplied for round #16 of the progressive challenges on CDAC and I said in Monday's post that I intended to make a scrapbook paper with this image and I couldn't wait to do it. I'm absolutely thrilled with the result as I knew I would be. Vickie's digis are a great quality and look wonderful large or small. I've done two pages which is something I often do now - a digital one and a physical one. They are for the sepia album I'm making of our wedding photos. Both are 12 x 12, the top one is the digital one and the bottom one is the hybrid one. I was so chuffed with the paper that I couldn't bring myself to cover any of the image up though so I had to have a think about how to add the photos without doing so. I decided to add the text directly to the paper without any mats or tags and added the gold pocket watch from the Sweet Sage SB kit. The locket from the Cream Dream Kit seemed to be the best way to add the photos without covering up any of the image on the paper and also fit in rather well with the rest of the vintage theme of the page. If I had an A3 printer, I would have printed it out as is, but I haven't and as I wanted my physical page to be 12 x 12 too, I resized the original page to 8 x 8. My dp for this page is a lovely pearlescent ivory with embossed flowers but was a little too pale so I sponged the edges with versafine sepia and memento cocoa inks. I've finished it off with lots of flowers - the pink flowers are much closer in colour to the roses in real life - and a sumptuous ribbon bow. I'd like to tell you that I tied that gorgeous bow myself, but that would be a lie! I 'rescued' it from a box of chocolates Christmas before last and it's just been waiting for the perfect project.
