This is the second finished layout, incorportating the background created by simply brushing color on the page. It was the first background created in the book.

This set is the last set for this month! I decided that during the month of February, I wanted to work with the colors red, pink and brown as primary colors. The themes and shapes to work with will be love, sweetheart, valentine, heart, chocolate, candy, flowers, and lace. I am planning to work in some nostalgic epherema and bits of collage. I liked these these papers because they weren’t too old fashioned, or too modern.

When I was a kid, and we went on trips, we played license plate bingo. Every state had it’s own two-color combination. It was cool, because you could tell what state a car was from, even from a distance! In this picture, you can see the inside of the cover and pocket folders. I added some stamped art and grungy jeans, maps and old clock faces to complete this old fashioned collection.

This set is dedicated to all those Mama Llama’s out there. I love the bright colors and high desert designs! In this picture, you can see the inside of the cover and pocket folders, with more geometric, metallic and textural designs. This little book is small enough to slip into a pocket, purse or diaper bag. It’s ready when you’re on the go, or have just a few minutes to jot down a note or sketch your lunch!
