At that time my favourite on-line tool was Tagxedo and I used it twice to create the background and titling for a BOM page celebrating the first album cassettes I owned - given to me by one of my (step-)brothers. Still love the music now too.
Having recently found our wedding album and several envelopes of photographs languishing in our attic I have a gold-mine of old, old photos ready for scanning and scrapping. I'd used one wedding photo for the auditions and thought I'd do a page about the adventures that lead to our engagement on the steps of the Sacre Couer in Paris. The whole sorry tale was part of a Sunday Storytelling here.
I decided to use a collage method taught to me by Tracie to make the paper for a page showing how No.1 Son has
An opportunity to scrap some photos from 2006 when my three were still building things with Duplo despite having boxes and boxes of Lego available: Child No.3 had built a roller-coaster from the first episode of a crazy Aardman claymation series called Rex The Runt - the title is one of Vince's catchphrases that often gets shouted here as an argument closer! I had fun with an on-line bar-code generator for this page.
I love bright colourful pages and so a rainbow of textured tissue papers seemed like a way to meet the challenge of having no patterns. I used a different technique for each line of colour and word paths to trace my journalling about our day in Chester around the various photos.
Phew - a long post with a lot of photos - thanks for sticking with me this far :D
If you do pop over to UKS you can see the final pages of the Scrap Factor Competition from the two remaining contestants Katherine & Nic - voting is still open until Sunday if you haven't yet made a decision.
