I learned quite a bit, but chose to keep it simpler than the lesson intended because I didn’t want it too busy for this photo choice.
I wanted to do the lesson, but I am still waiting to find the right pictures – I’m thinking a picture of my eldest as a toddler and now as a young man, but we’ll see. Â So, here is what I have so far – just need to add the photos, some embellishments (depending upon photos I choose) journaling and it will be done! Learned so much on this one too! Â JessicaSprague.com is definitely worth the money!
Wow! That was a bit scary! No template to follow! I started with a blank page and added papers, brushes and photo spots and clipped them in! Â I wasn’t sure I could do it – but I did! I now know that if I see or think of something I want to make, I can do it! I’m not limited to the (wonderful!) templates that are out there! Not that I won’t still buy some to help me out – but I can do it myself if I want! 😀
…with each lesson! Â And, she encouraged us to use our own picture today. Do you know how many years of albums there are without me in them?! My poor kids if I pass early – they won’t remember what I look like! Â So, here is a recent(ish) picture of me (not today – taking today’s picture was just too much – does she know what a BAD hair day I am having?! lol) in a layout for our 2014 album:
I love that Sissy loves to be silly and let’s me take pictures. Â I need to remember to be silly too so she keeps it up even as she ‘grows up’.
Today’s lesson showed me how to use brushes. Â Loving these lessons from JessicaSprague.com
