I want to thank everyone who left love on my post last night. You’re all right – I do have a gift of telling stories with my photos and I am an artist. Maybe I’ll make a career of it. 😉
I want to share two layouts I worked on this past week. They’re non-musical and they received a lot of love on both Scrapbook.com and the scrapbooking subReddit. Everyone loved the colours and designing. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons to scrap.
It’s hard to believe I’m almost done with Happiness Box 2019’s scrapbook. I think the next project will be an album for Happiness Jar 2016. Since the Jar didn’t hold the whole year, I’ll scrap what I kept until March 2016, then the odds and ends after, then order photos and look back on my Blogger blog for those moments.
As Christina said, “you always have a project going on, you’ll find something to fill the time!” How right she is. I’ve found scrapbooking and writing to be therapeutic during this quarantine.
One thought on “Non-Musical Layouts”
Hi, Jessica Marie!
You did a fine job on these non-musical layouts, dear friend. I love autumn, too, especially now that I live in Florida. The coming of Fall means pleasant relief from seemingly endless months of heat and humidity and it winds to a close the dreaded hurricane season. (This season is predicted to be an active or even very active one in the tropics.) I like the pumpkin orange color of your sweater weather layouts, the fall leaves proudly on display, the “skelfie” showing a bonny lass and her bony friend, and reminders of the fun activities of autumn including long walks in the fresh cool, invigorating air and people huddling around the warmth of a bonfire. I was especially intrigued by the vintage Halloween cards. I never knew people used to wish each other a “merry” Halloween, did you? Never once heard that expression. You can learn a lot by examining vintage greeting cards, illustrations on old book and magazine covers and other forms of art from the bygone days.
It’s good to have lots of ideas and goals and fun projects in the works at a time like this. Keeping busy and gaining satisfaction from little achievements helps us through these long months of uncertainty.
Enjoy your Sunday, dear friend JM!
