Today's ML challenge was to scrapbook an emotion.
I made a page about something that evokes an emotion instead: my grandparents' copy of the Mona Lisa that I inherited. Here's the page:
The story behind it: for as long as I can remember, my grandparents had a copy of the Mona Lisa in their hallway. When I was little, my uncle told me that HE had painted it. I believed this well into my teens until one day I was introduced to the works of Leonardo DaVinci... Whenever I look at the painting (that now hangs in my living room) it always makes me smile ;-)
At Ella's Bootcamp, one of the so-called 'drills' today was about making your own patterned paper using stamps. So I broke out some stamps, and went to work. All 3 colours patterned paper are hand-stamped.
I also tried to pay attention to the 2nd drill from day 1 about combining different patterned papers. I used a bold print (dark brown paper), a text-print (mustard paper) and a more subtle print (rust paper).
