I love to see the growth and metamorphosis of my children through my scrapbooks. What better way then to do it as a monthly record?
I am going to embrace this concept with my whole Heart. I know there are tons of classes and inspiration for photo-journaling by the day, month and year out there, online and in your community. This will be my take on the concept. My 12 month photo journal/scrapbook.
I would like to record 1 photo a month for each girl in this 8x8 book. I have plans of making one of these for each of my kids. I have 8 pages or 16 sides of pages to work with, so I can easily fit 12 months in.
I used Chalkboard paint left over from my School Album. I thought it make a nice stark contrast. I shabbied it up a bit, of course. I am a veteran Navy wife, we learn to like shabby. A few moves under your belt and shabby becomes your new style. So........
I used a ton of Maya Road products just on the cover. But one of my favorite parts so far is the rose because I had so much fun rolling the fabric and spraying it with Cherry Maya Mist .
I also loved making the bottlecap hanging embellishment. I used a Mega Bottle Cap and primed it with metal primer. I then painted it with red acrylic paint. Let it dry and then applied a Maya Road clock rubon in white and then sanded it to make it more rustic. I added the pearl to the center and punched a hole in the top edge. Makes a perfect embellishment.
Have a great Day!
