Sometimes I still take a moment to marvel at how we can work from anywhere. I know it’s a part of most of our everyday lives, but I still remember vividly what it was like before the mobile world was born.
I took this photo in August 2012 when I was visiting my family in North Carolina. My brother and I were sitting in a cute coffee shop, and he was taking care of business while we hung out.
I followed sketch #111 from My Scraps & More as well as the Scrap & Chat challenge at Paper Issues. This is the sketch:
And the PI challenge called for choosing one row of four from the table—vertical, horizontal or diagonal—and featuring those four supplies on your project. I used flair, patterned paper, die cuts and enamel dots from this table:
I liked the idea of limiting my color palette on this page to that of most of our mobile devices: silver, black and white. So I used a few black-and-white patterned papers from Studio Calico 6×6 pads and then stamped my own patterns for the bottom two rows of diamonds. I wanted the black-to-white ratio in the patterns to go from darkest at the top of the page to lightest at the bottom. The chalkboard flair is from Crate Paper, and I wrote my brother’s initial on it with a chalk marker. The striped enamel dots are from Queen & Co.
