I enjoy classes which allow me to really put my own spin on things. This class was no exception. I have been wanting to document how my son spent his first half on life in one country and the second half( so far) in another. Part of my issue centered around finding a way to use the colors of both flags on the same layout without it looking garrish. After seeing the prompt for the first week of Hello Story, I decided to create an infographic style layout.
Supplies| Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup, My Mind's Eye, Webster's Pages, Studio Calico, Bobunny; Letters: Kelly Purkey, American Crafts; Brad: Making Memories; Bingo Card, Bows: Jenni Bowlin; Die Cuts: Kelly Purkey; Tape: My Mind's Eye; Wood Venneer; Artchix Studio; Pens: Sakura, Pilot, Ranger; Other: stickers, flags, sequins, jewels, label maker, kraft cardstock
I used flags to create a timeline. I also added some pie charts to depict how many homes my son has moved to in each country.
I am looking forward to more lessons from the Hello Story class. Hopefully I can keep up with the class by incorporating some of the layouts into my creative team efforts. Meanwhile, Technique Toolbox starts today. Perhaps I will see some of you in class and around the gallery.
