Page Kit: Americana by No Reimer Reason
To create the title element, I used a paper from the Americana Kit, filled it into a rounded corner rectangle shape, and then added some beveling. The only other embellishment I used was a fastener for the family photo in hopes that the little touch would draw your eye up to the family photo and down to the journaling. Generally, I focus on the photos of the boys so I needed a little something to say 'hey, there's something over here!"
Notice I have a little captioning sentence under the boys' photos to say who they were and when they might have been taken.
I thought I'd also mention now why I use so few embellishments in this album. The focal person is my grandfather Lewis Brown. Since he is my grandfather, he is a male. I know that seems obvious. But the point is, when the subject is male, it's best if we don't get carried away with embellishments and decorative elements. For some, my pages may be boring. But to those who understand the mood I'm portraying with this album, they understand why it's so understated.
