Theme week – Blast from the Past
Hello and welcome back to the SN blog.
This past week we challenged the Nerd Girls to create a project about a Blast from the Past. Scroll down to see layouts from Gisele, Mari, and Nathalie.
Inspired by a Kristine Davidson sketch in her new online book of sketches, Gisele’s layout is somewhat out of her comfort zone as I usually do not use a white cardstock background. Using the last bits and pieces I had from Jillibean Soup Farmhouse Stew, the stickers from the collection, some Shimelle enamel dots, Amy Tangerine felt pompoms, AC Thickers from my stash: Dear Lizzy Sparkling and Lullaby, a vellum bow, Heidi Swapp Colour shine in sweet mint and several circle punches. I fussy cut the flowers and added a Vicki Boutin bird paper clip. I like that my photo is in black and white as this picture is circa 1954?, when I was living in Montreal, Quebec.
Mari used the Crate Paper “Good Vibes” collection to create this layout with a Blast From the Past photo. The messy photo layers were created using bits of paper from the 6×6 paper pad and die cuts from the ephemera pack. Lots of embellishments from the collection including stickers, chipboard and cork pieces were used to create three clusters on the layout.
Nathalie created this page about one of the few pictures of her childhood (circa 1978) using a bit of mixed media in the background. She used Photoplay’s Vintage Girl collection to back the large title and to create the flowers on the page. She combined a few of Jen Hadfield’s Sticker book images in the clusters, and along the entire page.
We hope you found some inspiration in today’s post. If you have any questions were just a comment away!
Dig out an old photo of yourself or a loved one and document your own blast from the past.
