Hey, how about another sample from this month’s musical LOAD?
The prompt for this page was to create a page with a pocket, a la liner notes from record albums and CD cases. There are a lot of pockets in the counterfeit kits I made, so it was fairly easy to add one to a page. (It’s almost like I knew there was going to be a prompt about pockets!) 😉
While assembling this, it seemed to really need a bit of green as a border strip, but the baker’s twine that was in the kit just wasn’t thick enough. It was getting lost on the page. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of crocheting, so the idea of creating a crocheted border seemed like a natural fit. This is just a chain stitch, but there are so many more things you could do to add a bit of texture to the page with crochet. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
The pocket holds some quotes from number one son, from about when this photo was taken. While making this page I realized I haven’t been as good at recording the silly little things everyone around me says on a regular basis. Must try to do that more. I love how saving those little moments captures a little bit of their personality and wit and interests at the time.
Bonus? Using up three shape paper clips on one page! Maybe I can get these out of my stash soon, and make room for newer embellishments!
What are some ways you’ve added pockets to your pages? What do you put in them? I’d really like to know!
