Post 68 - New pages - Lovin' the August "Growth" kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out...

Blogging my evolution as an artistic art educator - An art-based experience... 

"Rising Above" - 12" x 12" 

"Rising Above" - 12" x 12" - Detail of sanded chipboard lettering, 
doodled frame, painted wooden dragonfly

"Gaining Appreciation" - 12" x 12"

"Gaining Appreciation" - 12" x 12" - Detail of mist stained ribbon, 
mist dyed flower, mist stamped border, and inked cardstock sticker

            The pages I created with this kit, based on the theme of "Growth", were all titled and focused on synonyms for the word "growth", such as "gain", "become", and "develop". I also worked very hard to emphasize the flexible qualities of the kit, including color focus.
            The pages above are the only two monochromatically blue pages. The blue details, such as the texture "waves" on the "Rising Above" page and the stained ribbon, dyed flower, and stamped dot border on the "Gaining Appreciation" page, were all created with the blue mist included in the kit (which I LOVED working with).         
            The journaling and photo focus for these two pages revolved around my lack of trust issues, with people, and my increasing respect for my beloved Aunt Mary Kay. I worked very hard with this kit to include more than one photo (which is my usual style), and to journal more authentically.
            Check out my blog later this week for another page created from the August "Growth" kit from SFTIO...

Safety, health, happiness, and peace... Pam
