When I decided to really commit to the "Embrace Imperfection" mini album I also committed to creating with supplies and materials on hand - and just make whatever I had work.
Brene Brown from her book "The Gifts of Imperfection."
The word tickets are by Tim Holtz. Another one of those things in my stash that I never think to use!
Perfect Protest? Yep, I kind of thought it was "perfect" for this project too! I also played with purposefully putting things at odd angles and not centered.
One Little Word classroom over at BPS. Another one that really speaks volumes.
The Tressie Rub-Ons. I love the addition of the little bits of bling to the flowers!
Have you noticed that the double page layouts alternate between blue background and white background? I was using both sides of a double-sided two-color cardstock. That was interesting to work with as well!
I finished it off by binding with brads, first making a wrap-around binding so the brads and raw edges don't show.
The "pages" are roughly 6.5 x 6.5" and are scored at the binding edge so they open flat.
Overall, I was very happy with the finished project and somewhat surprised by what I learned about myself in the process. I hope this new knowledge will allow me to finish up some of the other UFO's on my ever-growing list!
