Passages Workshop #1

I'm terribly delayed in posting this workshop! Life and volleyball season has set in!
This is a wonderfully easy layout that I based on the orange and red printed B&T that came with this set. This left page has a 4 x 12 piece of the smokey B&T along the left edge, and a 4 x 8 piece of Chocolate cardstock across the bottom span, about 1 inch from the bottom edge. In the top section, a 6 x 7 inch piece of brown bag cardstock is layered with a 6 3/4 x 4 1/2 piece of chocolate cardstoco as a mat for a focal picture.
I embellished this side with some satin ribbon. I cut it to 15 inches and then cut it in the middle and retied it for extra flair. I also added 3 brads and one picture clip to the focal point mat.

On the right hand page, also based on the orange and red B&T, I put a 6 x 6 smokey B&T in the bottom right corner and a 6 x 6 piece of Brown
Bag cardstock in the bottom left corner.
I put a 3 x 6 piece of the smokey B&T (turned to the back) in the top/left corner for a journaling section and
I'm embellished it with a hinge attached to the top section. I added a chocolate cardstock mat (7 x 5) embellished with a stamped clock face from
the included stampset (in Chocolate) on some scrap paper and cut out. The scrap paper I used was a bit of the postcard B&T I had left over and just happened to have a light impression of the capitol building on it. I added another satin ribbon done the same way to this page.
