It's worth repeating what I said a couple of Scrapbook Saturday posts ago: Miss Smith's Telling Tales is continuing apace and her suggestions for a different take on a page, combined with telling the story are consistently thought provoking and inspiring.
Prompt 8 was all about putting journaling spots behind patterned paper. Never. That was my immediate thought. And a week or so later, the jury is still out on whether I would ever do this on a 12x12 layout. What I did instead, was to try it out on the cover on my work-in-progress travel journal. Hardly adventurous, but a starting point.
Have you done this prompt? I'd love to see what you did.
Prompt 9 was all about using stamped journaling spots. I laughed. However, I did find a stamp still attached to an acrylic block. I suppose I should have re-inked after each imprint, but I rather like the overall effect.
Prompt 10 was all about journaling captioned photos. I enjoyed this one ~ perfect for a set of photos that are uninspiring on their own.
Prompt 11 was all about telling the story behind the photo. I wrote about what I get from having coffee with a friend after school drop-off.
For this last page, destined for The Boy Child's album, I went back to prompt 2: hidden journaling.
I hadn't planned to hide the journaling, but in the end I felt that putting it anywhere else would upset the page's balance. The line of London buses was cut from a postcard. I used this photo is a smaller size for prompt one.
