Kerlovich Easter... with bird houses

At the recent Itsy Charity Crop, I created this layout using really sweet birdhouse paper and some matching scraps to create the little pennants tired with bakers twine. I pop dotted a few of the bird houses, to stand out, which you cant see. Perhaps by clicking on the photo, it becomes larger, you might be able to see the details.
As a side note, I won the twine as part of my raffle prize, which was a sewing kit. Since I never win anything big I was quite happy.
Our family got together for Easter at my cousins in Windsor Ontario. They have a great back yard with an enclosed deck and the weather was perfect all afternoon for sitting and munching . The photos for this layout are a combination of black and white, and colour, which makes it unique. I love seeing the kids enjoy our family times as they all get older. Great memories.

Grad Exhibit layout . Proud of her!

My daughters grad class had an art show to celebrate graduation so I created this Fanshawe Grad Exhibit layout, showing the Google style grad brochure whish showcases the artists and their works. Featured is the painting my daughter sold to Fanshawe College in London for their permanent collection. My daughter is into paint manipulation, which is taking thick pieces of dried paint and shaping them and adhering them onto a canvas. It is unique. She will be attending OCAD in Toronto in the fall to pursue a bachelors degree in Fine Art.
I used chipboard for the pennant and some bakers twine to tie it together. Colours are orange, turquoise blue, and neutrals. For the patterned paper I kept it simple, to keep the focus on the art. I chose a paper that has an architecté drafting look to it. You can see some of my tools and my little tool bag that stands in front of me whenever I scrap book. Also some Tombo adhesive. I go through an entire Tombo every time I do a days worth of scrapbooking. Its worth it. Its fast and it holds and I can control the amount.
