I am very proud of myself for having kept up with Project 12 so far even though I've only shown a few here on the blog. And I've never submitted for a prize before because the prize for me is just getting the month done. They are not usually my most favorite pages...but I really cherish them for all of the details they hold. I love how they all have something similar yet look so different. In mine, I've used Kraft CS as one of the two base papers for every month.
So here is August and I've got to tell you there are several parts I'm in love with. One is the title "August" how it's all scrunched up. I'm normally VERY linear ;) The pattern papers are all from a retired collection of Stampin' Up! I've had for years and it felt so good to use some of my stash. Another part is this little owl and the rubons I mixed with it. I'm a rubon hoarder so I was glad to use some up. I'm also an owl hoarder...I have a whole separate section in my stash that is devoted to owl paper, rubons, embellishments, etc. I'm glad to finally be using some of that, too!You can see more rubons in the tree - the owl and 'shrooms. I stickled the heck out of the flower paper and the tree cut out. It's a very pretty LO in real life :)
One thing I wish is that I had stitched instead of doodled...but I'm just not comfortable enough yet to sew on a layout - especially a double pager!
Here is July, which I also finished this week...
