I wanted to keep memories from a recent visit to the Orlando Art Museum. It was such an amazing experience and very out of my normal routine. I must say that us crafters are artist of some kind and even though I don’t paint, seeing other forms of art really inspired me.
For this project I wanted to use the September Skies collection from Heidi Swapp. I was very much drawn to the colors and especially to one of the papers that has a constellation graphics.
This collection was so easy to work with. I should say that part of that was thanks to the amazing ephemera pack that makes embellishment of your pages a breeze.
When you visit an art museum taking photos is a little tricky, you are actually not allowed due to the artist copyrights. I used most of the free brochures to remember those areas and then complemented with the photos that I was allowed to take.
I was really happy that even the brochures match the paper collection.
This whole project is made out papers scored and folded in half creating a cascading effect. To hold the pages together I simply used a stapler that holds everything in place.
For the cover I used a previous collection file folder and used the amazing floral paper from the September Skies collection. And yes I had a blast fuzzy cutting all the flowers! A wood veneer piece and stamping completes the look.
At the end of the project I added a big pocket that holds the extra brochures that I didn’t use. I attached in the front of the pocket the admission tickets and another photo.
Hope that this inspires you to scrap all of those vacation photos that we take and forget when we get home. This project was super fast and simple and something that I am gonna cherish. I’ll see you soon with more crafty goodness.
