Hello Crafty Friends!
How are you all going with the Big Aussie Craft Challenge? We've received some lovely entries so far and can't wait to see more!
I have to say - I'm loving the sound of this new challenge - keep it simple, get it done!!
Hi everyone! With our Big Aussie Craft Challenge in mind, I thought one final project using the Explore 2018 Kit was in need! For this challenge I decided to make a simple journal layout documenting my Australia Day for 2018. This year, I had a BBQ with friends in a very special location... my friend's new yurt! Isn't this the coolest house?!
I started my page in this gorgeous travelers notebook. This year I decided I wanted to do more memory keeping, but in a way that was easy to actually keep up with. So I set myself a few rules:
1. Black ink only - no fancy pens!
2. Colour can be added using watercolour, colouring drawings or simple stamps
3. The only embellishments allowed are black and white washi or ephemera from outings
Let's see what a simple memory keeping page looks like!
To start my page I stamped some flowers on the edge of the page using the Kaisercraft Open Road stamp set. I figured an Aussie journal page wouldn't be complete without some Aussie flora. Aren't these plants just gorgeous?
Next, I used my Prima Watercolours to colour the stamps. I love how vibrant the colours are.
With the base of my page done, I added the photo of the yurt. I love how the picture looks printed on instant-camera style paper.
To finish the page off, I did some journalling about my day. Here is the finished page:
I know that this layout is super simple, but I hope that keeping it simple means I might actually get some memory keeping done! And I love that my first page celebrates Australia Day.
