P365 – Day 155 scrapping with the wheat paper
Posted On 4 June 2011
It’s been two weeks since I went to the 12 layouts in five hours scrapbooking class.
In that time I’ve finished five pages. Today I finished my sixth.
I did a lot of the layout at the scrapbooking night at our local scrapbooking shop last night and just put the finished touches on it today.
A feature of this layout is that I used some paper that has become a bit of a running joke at scrapbooking, fondly referred to as the ‘wheat paper’, because it predominantly features, well, what else but wheat.
Until last night, no one has wanted to use it, and we were staring to suspect that D, the shop owner was trying to foist it off onto anyone for any project just to get rid of it.
It’s almost as big a joke as the running joke about me and stitching on layouts, but we’ll leave that for another day.
For the record, the wheat paper is part of the Creative Imaginations John Deere collection. One side is wheat and the other side (which I used in the journal block) is a lighter version of the wheat image, with a green John Deere tractor on the bottom.
Thank you River. I like how it turned out. No, the paper actually has a picture of wheat on it! The background cardstock is called 'Kraft', it's that raw sort of cardboardy look, if you know what I mean.
That's a lovely page you've created. I thought the "wheat" referred to the colour of the paper.
