Farewell Message/Scrapbook #5 (Sample)


Another farewell message/scrapbook made for some farewell messages writing. This message/scrapbook is themed blue with beach and sea decorations.

The front and back covers are using 9"x9" cardboard. The background of the covers are covered using wrapper of printed sky and cloud. The front cover is scrapped with sea and beach decorations. Firstly, the message, "May The Wind" is printed on a white paper and trimmed into a cloud lookalike shape. Then gold cardboard is used to make the sunny sun. A semi-circle is trimmed using a soft red foam to make the bottom of the boat. Then, the message, "Sail" is printed on a yellow paper and trimmed into triangle shape to make the boat's right sail. Another green paper is trimmed into triangle shape to make the boat's left's sail. The vertical center of the boat is made using a white string. Three (3) punched stars are then placed on the bottom of the boat as decoration. As for the waves, two (2) shades of blue cardboard are used and trimmed into waves alike. The medium shade of blue has messages, "You" and "Further" printed on it. The complete message made up is "May The Wind Sail You Further". The beach sand is teared using a yellowish patterned paper to give a sandy beach feel. Then several dark green strips are secured using a brad to make the tree while the trunk is using a thick string. Two (2) shell lookalike buttons are placed on the "sandy beach" to represent seashells.

There are eight (8) pages in total for message writing. Each of the pages contain different elements of cloud, sun, sea and beach made from various colors of cardboard. Each of the elements are trimmed into cloud, sun, umbrella, boat, starfish, seashell, fish,  jellyfish, whale and sea grass lookalike shapes. Then, these elements will be placed harmoniously to create a beach or sea scenario. Writer(s) can either write diagonally, vertically, upside down or etc depending on their own creativity and outstanding on these elements.

The back cover is another boat made using a soft red foam for the bottom of the boat. Then, the message, "Best Wishes" is printed on a pink paper and trimmed into triangle shape to make the boat's right sail. Another green paper is trimmed into triangle shape to make the boat's left's sail. While a medium shades blue paper is trimmed into waves alike. 

At the bottom is the scrapper signature.
