I have been on a crafty roll lately!! After making all my Christmas cards I was burned out, but lately I've been wanting to create, so I've been back cruising all the blogs I follow, and finding some new ones!! Love the inspiration and creativity!!
At Scrapbookers Anonymous they have a challenge called "Maps and Brads", and they are all about using your stash!! Now, I did not have a thing that had anything to do with a map. Enter Google!! I was able to find and print a map of BC, which is the province I live in, and the rest just fell into place!! About 4 years ago we had an aerial pic taken of our house, and it is framed and hanging on our wall, so I took a picture of it, which was quite challenging because it didn't seem to matter where I put it, I kept seeing a reflection of something! Anyway, I decided to do a page about our home, using the map. Here is my page:
I printed the map on vellum paper, so you are still able to see a bit of the background. I took a piece of sand coloured paper and tore it to try and make it look like mountains, but that still looked boring so then I decided to stamp some trees and animals that you would for sure see in BC!! Enter moose, deer, porcupine and rabbit!! I used a small brad to "pin-point" where we are in BC. A tag with a bit of journaling, a brad to hold it in place and it was done!!
Thanks for looking!! :)
