|Story:||At Thanksgiving, I received a portrait of my husband’s maternal grandparents from my husband’s cousin. One look at this elegant couple, and I wanted to get it into a scrapbook straight away.|
|Style:||In an assignment for Get It Scrapped, we were to channel Celeste Smith. Without getting all mystical on you, channeling is defined as exhibiting the traits of another person in one’s actions. It is several steps removed from directly scraplifting their work. |
What caught my eye about Celeste’s style:
Given that my page was a heritage page I settled upon some navy circles on a neutral ground cardstock and layered other prints on top to show only 15% of the bold base sheet. I repeated the circular elements in more subtle variations of punched paper circles, dotted paper and round alphabet stickers. The large circled paper gives the page real drama, but the context of other elements keeps it from becoming playful.
I consider my channeling experiment a success; hopefully, Celeste will too.
