Nathalie with you today to bring you a new 3-to-Inspire challenge for this week. At the beginning of the year, our friend and fellow CT, Shannon, decided to create a new photography challenge for the year. 10on10 is a way to capture your life in 10 frames on the 10th of each month. I love the idea of curating our daily lives through photo and story, and decided to use a Coral Life Crafted album for this project.
- Use numbers (stickers, stamps, diecuts)
- Bring on the florals
- Use one accent color
I used the Digital New Starts TN papers to create the background paper for the page. I copy the same image next to each other then sized it to fit a canvas of 9.5"x8.25". This was scored at 5" and 51/8"from the right edge. I cut vellum at about 4.25"x8"to serve as the canvas on each of the insert pages. I knew the best way to layer all the pictures was a modified grid. So, I sized my photos to fit 2"x3" and set 3 of them on the center paper, then used another one to add my story pages.
I wanted to continue the floral theme in the spread. So I chose to add just one photo on the inside of the spread flaps, then added more yellow floral ephemera, a puffy number and a ticket with the date. Then used Photoshop to create my lines of journal to fit inside a 4"*3" canvas.
I used the same configuration for the other side of the spread, thus adding my 9 pictures to the inner flap and pages of the spread. Here is a look at the complete inside spread:
