About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

~~ First day at school–mini ~~

Posted by Ania On Saturday, February 25, 2012

4x4-binder

So, I created like four minis for the Maya Road CHA-booth...mm..this one tells the story of first day at school for the youngest one.

I decided to stick w/mainly one manufacturer for the papers, and went for Crate Paper for this one. A mix of various collections – hence the gesso to whitewash the papers some & give them some kind of coherence.

I also decided to mix some canvas, chipboard & transparencies for the inner pages..

Butterfly! Loves! Notice the broad ribbon underneath the butterfly? Love that one. It’s the organza tea garden trim in chai.

Once I get the mini back I’m gonna gather the rest of the images from that day inside this envelope. I mainly focused on the journaling + the photos showing her only on the pages which were sent to CHA.
