2016: Mississinewa 1812
One of favorite local events to attend each year is Mississinewa 1812, which is held each October. It is a battle reenactment event that takes place over a three day period, near Marion Indiana.
I chose an antique theme for this spread, using several antiqued papers to create the effect. I used a jagged edge tearing tool to tear several strips that were then layered to create the effect that you see in the middle of the spread. Interestingly, the two dark brown strips are actually left over binding from an album cover that provide textural interest to the page.
The left hand page contains the program from the event, which is affixed to the outside of the plastic page protector, so that the reader can open it to view it. This page also has the ticket from the event – I had three tickets, but we only used 2, which we had to turn in at the gate, so I used this one for the scrapbook. At events where we have to turn the tickets in, I usually take a picture of the ticket, and then cut it to look like an actual ticket to put in the scrapbook.
