prague...or london in the rain


Back in November, the boyfriend and I went to Prague for a few days for our first holiday together and it was lovely.  It's also high time I scrapped about it as I've been wanting to get cracking with the pictures for a while!


I wanted to try out a few new ideas with this page.  So I hand drew and hand cut one title, and then drew the the hand-lettering on the envelope.  I like the post-style theme and I wanted the page to look like all the bits and pieces had just tumbled out of the envelope.


Tying the envelope up with string continues the post theme, along with the recycled stamp! The little envelopes also gave me a great opportunity to hide the journalling, which is quite personal, but still to keep my writing on show.  It's easy to pull out the little letter inside if you want to read it. but looking more casually at the page you would get an impression of writing without my thoughts being spilled all across the page.  All I needed was a little instant photo to finish!


I really enjoyed putting this page together around a design theme as it gave me a focus and I had a direction in mind.  Plus once again, I loved using the Project Life cards on a 12x12 page.  So I'm going to experiment with this a bit more!
