The sixth National Scrapbook Day challenge was to combine stripes, chipboard and a large circle on a project. I made another Then-and-Now layout with pictures of Trevor and my mom processing pistachios in 2008 and again in 2014. It's something we do every other year (more about that here).
I used a stencil to make a dotted circle, added a strip of striped paper, and then inked raw chipboard letters with the same ink I used on the dotted circle. I punched three smaller circles to guide the eye and house my journaling.
One scrapper played along with this challenge. I absolutely love her layout that combines her son's photo, artwork and writing. I never would have thought to use a self-portrait as a large circle! It's fabulous.
Coincidentally, I have another then-and-now layout to share tomorrow. I didn't complete the challenges in order, so I hadn't realized that there were two back-to-back.

I really like both yours and AllAmy's. I don't use circles enough. Especially not large circles. That was a great idea to use a stencil to guide you. Super cute!ReplyDelete
Love the Now and Then with Trevor and your mom!ReplyDelete
AllAmy's circle head is SO cute!
These are both awesome! You know I love your then and now layouts and that use of kid art on the other is genius! :)ReplyDelete
