LOAD213: Squeak Purr

Ironically, I had completed today's LOAD prompt several days ago. Today, we are supposed to scrapbook a sound. I use sounds every so often on my layouts as a source of inspiration. Using your senses can help you to incorporate symbols, textures or colors into your layout which can later jog your memory. You can also use sounds to guide your journaling as I did for this layout.







Squeak Purr by Christy Strickler Supplies| Cardstock: Colorbok; Mist: Ranger, Tattered Angels: Webster's pages; Die Cuts: Sassafrass; Glitz, October Afternoon; Ephemera, Chipboard: JBS Mercantile; Button: Basic Grey; Stamp: American Crafts; Submitted to the Color Challenge at Life Paper Scrapbook  and to the fabric challenge at Scrap It Girl.








Juju Bee is an unusual cat. She makes a trilling sound whenever she moves around the house. When she is happy. She purrs. When she is VERY happy, she purrs so hard she squeaks. Though a photo can not convey sound, I wanted to document this quirk in her personality. She is also very feminine, a little prissy, but somehow prone to getting into mischief. The fabric elements, sequins, flowers and ink splotches all represent who she is.


The fabric is another of my recycled/rescued items. Its a sort of scarf like belt that came with an outfit I bought. I knew I wouldn't wear the belt, but I loved the sequin design on it. I ruffled it and sewed it onto the layout.

As you work on your next layout, I invite you to explore sounds associated with your photos. Can you use them in your title? Will they direct your journaling? Perhaps there may be embellishments which can contribute to a symbolic form of sound. I think you will find you can add more meaning to your layouts by incorporating your senses.
