It finally dawned on me about 3 years ago to start my scrapbook on New years day...getting all my days into one book, starting like a calendar! It totally makes things more logical. So this is my opening page for my new album.
I started with Gecko Galz HAPPY NEW YEAR BABY and VINTAGE CARD TOP ephemera. I found some pretty paper in my stash, this was Cosmo Cricket, Love notes.
I also pulled some tones of beige to brown, including some craft paper. This was really a challenge to me as I usually like a lot of color. I cut my main page to 11x11 so I could use a lighter tone to frame it. I double mounted the ephemera, inked all the edges with Antique Linen, including the paper frame. I cut images that were reflective of the ephemera and added a glass for CHEERS. I took the numbers that came off the clock and used them for my year. I layered all the pieces giving balance and symmetry to the images and the colors.
