Autumn Wonder by Debbie Adams is the inspiration this month at ARTastic:
The extra challenge is to use clouds, trees, and autumn colors.
The painting (autumn!) made me think of the pictures I took from our hike in July (summer!) which I still hadn't scrapped (spring!).
I had this brown paper which was perfect, combining books and nature. Too bad the best designs would be covered by my pictures. First I was going to cut them out with an exacto and switch them which would be time consuming and difficult to match up. Then I remembered we have a scanner now!
I placed 3 of the scanned ones I like over the less desirable images...
Voila! I used the leftover paper to make a pocket in the back to keep my journaling in, and to make a tab to pull the journaling out. I printed the journaling from my blog, attached the tab, and added 51 with letter stickers (the hike number in the book).
I didn't get to use any of the pictures that had clouds, but at least I got the trees and brown in there.
I also finished this from our trip to DC in January:
I tried to use a lot of things from the brochure. Also, how excited was I when I found this paper? It has a train theme and a monkey, and my sister-in-law wore a monkey hat on the train!!!
