I spent Saturday in Owosso, vending at a crop to raise money for the St. Joseph Youth Group.
It was a fun day. There were a handful of “old” friends at the crop and I made quite a few new friends, as well.
I did things a little differently this time … I didn’t teach Mosaic Moments, but gave a demo and then offered assistance. Quite a few people decided to try the technique. And a couple let me photograph them with their pages. (I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos; it is tough to get a clear photo in a gym.
This is Marty. She created an amazing page of some beautiful floral photos. She added butterflies that have the same colors and textures as the flowers. She added a bit of Stickles to the Memory Box die at the bottom to make the perfect embellishment.
I wish I took a better photo because this page is worthy of an award — seriously! It really is magnificent!
Maria also created a page for the first time … she used the most adorable photos of her baby daughter on a Snap On toolbox. (Her husband is a mechanic). I dubbed her the Snap-On Baby and I think Snap-On should use her photos in their next calendar.
Anyway, Maria struggled for a bit — she likes to see what the page will look like before it is complete and she had a hard time envisioning how this one would work. But, she persevered and eventually put this amazing spread together. I love how she cut screws and words from patterned paper and added them in.
I think it is perfect, but she insists it is not finished. She is on the hunt for some metal pieces to add a bit more “manliness” to the layout.
If you want to learn how to create pages like these using the Mosaic Moments system, let me know. I am happy to show you how easy and fun it is!
