I am working on a scrapbook for my friend Beth. Her cat Flower passed away recently. I asked her to write down some stories about Flower and then I created some cats to represent Flower. I have to say I am having so much fun making this album for Beth and her family!
I used Storybook for the title. I used Christmas for the window. I cut the shadow out of a wall paperish kind of paper. I cut the window out twice. I pop dotted the second window on top of the first for a little dimension.
Some of you may have seen this sneak peek on facebook. I wanted Beth to see what I was working on. Flower loved to sit on Grandma's slippers and sleep on Beth's feet. I took the cat from A Child's Year and welded the shadow image to a pair of slippers, then flipped the cat and welded one to a pair of shoes.
I used the laptop, books and notebook paper from Locker Talk, the cat from Paisley on top of the books.
I welded two trees together from the Heritage cartridge and cut it out in two different greens to create the bush. I used the cat looking up at the bird from A child's Year. I cut the cat out of white and green and just cut the green cat and shovel off the grass. I glued the cat down first, then the bush. I trimmed the extra bush parts off the edges of the paper. I added a little brown ink to the grass and bushes.
Here they are again. Since Beth did not have pictures to go with these particular stories, I created my own!
