I participated in Scrappin’ Sista’s swap for January. It was to make an altered journal for one person – a 1:1 swap. Without knowing the recipient’s style, I perused her website and gleaned what I could. This person seems to have a clean style, and is interested in what beauty means. A color palette was provided for us to use, beautiful, muted winter colors with a pop of cardinal red. I knew I wanted to use the “beauty” theme. Beauty means different things in different cultures, so that got me thinking. I decided to use the Pagoda cartridge, because it has cuts from a culture with gorgeous artwork, the Japanese culture. It contains kanji, Japanese characters that represent concepts. I cut out the one that means beauty, as well as the stunning pagoda. The font is Adine-Kinberg.
Inside, on every tenth page, I put a quote about beauty from different people in different cultures. Anyway, as you probably guessed from the title of this post, I won second place! I’m so excited!!
There are a few more spots open for Scrappin’ Sista’s February swap. If you’re interested, you can find the details here.
