I’ve got a layout to share today as part of the Layout A Day challenge. If you don’t know what LOAD is the quick version is we scrapbook every day for a month. There are some other bits and bobs about it but that is the basics.
While we have prompts for LOAD I was inspired by the inspiration for the prompt and not the prompt itself, that being an aquaduct located in Wales. This aquaduct connects parts of the UK’s canal system. Canal were used historically to moved goods about the region until trains were invented and became dominant. Today canals are recreational and are still traveled by similar boats, called narrow boats. Let me tell you more in the video as I craft and chat!
I’ve pulled out some brand new Vicki Boutin Sweet Rush papers and chipboard as well as just a tiny touch of Heidi Swapp’s Sun Chaser paper to create my layout today. There are also a few other unknown travel themed embellishments on there. I grabbed my photos from YouTube channels that are all about narrow boat life. They were printed to ~1.5″ by 5.5″, which is an odd photo size. But creating a grid layout on the watery background paper all adds up to a nice project. I hope you think so too.
While I have the basics of the layout in place, I do intend to add more journaling on the card tucked into the existing journaling pocket. I’ll likely add an accordion folded journaling note since I feel like I have a lot to say. I’ve done this technique before in this video if you want to really see what I mean.
That is it for now. I’ll be back to share what I create over this upcoming (i)NSD weekend. I hope you have some fun crafting to do this weekend as well!
