Scrapboook Page Idea #2

Here is page #2 from my Texan Owl Family Scrapbook

This page is super duper easy!  I just overlaid pretty papers, inked some edges, and stuck a flower on.  (If you want to save some money, trim the papers you do not see so you can reuse them.  I cut my blue card-stock in half so that I could use it as the background on two pages instead of just one.)

It is important to select a palate of colors to work with throughout your project.  I found a really cheap package of paper that did it for me.  Then, I pulled card-stock and embellishments that coordinated with the package of paper and stuck to those colors.

Scrapbook Page Ideas with a Texan Owl Family Theme :)

I created a Texan Owl Themed Scrapbook  for my family this last Christmas and have decided to share some of the page ideas.  It will probably take me a couple months to post them all :). 

This page is a collage of Texan treasures.  My mother thought up this idea and encouraged me to use my brain to put it together.  Luckily it turned out...with some helpful direction from her :).  I created a pattern for the lone star in the middle and cut each segment of that star out...yikes.  I inked the edges with brown ink and then added a lot of Texas looking stuff :).
