A Flatlander's Fascination

A window seat is the ONLY way to go! I love to watch the world in miniature below me as I fly, and I snapped a photo of the mountainous snow-covered landscape from the airplane window as I flew from New Orleans to Seattle last year. I thoroughly enjoyed the view, and had a crick in my neck by the end of the flight! Here is how I scrapbooked that picture:


The page is a mix of Basic Grey, October Afternoon, and Simple Stories travel-themed papers, chipboard, die-cuts and flair. 

 

The mountains were pencilled in and watercolored, their peaks highlighted with shimmery Stickles glitter glue! The plane is a stamp from American Crafts/Amy Tangerine.

 

I love those grey fabric Thickers, and the casualness they add to my page.


As a flatlander, AND a southerner, I never get to see such beautiful snow-covered peaks. This is just one more reason it's worth the extra $ for Early Bird check-in when flying Southwest Airlines. I need that window seat!
