I chose to scrap a couple of photos of my husband and our friends' son painting together on holiday. I'd already printed them at different sizes but I added a piece of patterned paper to them to make a photo block similar to the one on Cindy's page. I backed it with strips of patterned paper from a 6x6 pad and switched it to the opposite side of the page to suit the direction that the people are facing in the photos.
Since it's a page about painting, I decided on an inky background for my page and used a variation on the packaging technique. I inked up a piece of 12x12 acetate using colours to match my papers, spritzed it with water and smooshed the colour around before laying my cardstock on top. I cut a set of icons on my Silhouette to match Cindy's snowflakes, and spread them around the page as she had, but I preferred them in clusters. I cut my title on the Silhouette too, and moved it to the side as I had more space there.
These were the pages that came before Cindy and me - inspiration from Missy Whidden, Sarah's version of Missy's page, and Jo's lift of Sarah's page:
Mine is so different from that starting point, but the progression is clear to see.
