This was a snowy/rainy/miserable day here in
Joe’s still on the disabled list; sister’s still sick; and I’m sick of winter!
Today I went down to the lower studio, aka the basement, and did a little
scrapbooking. This layout was added to the March sketch at Creative
Scrapbooking. I seldom use a sketch but this time I liked theirs so I went with
Finn has many interests from cooking to running to soccer to art and on and on and on. He’s a busy boy. He participated in a kid’s Mud Run and had a ball. The beige piece was just plain beige. I started out smearing some brown and blue ink on it; stamping mud splatters using a few Stampin’ Up stamps; ripping the edges and then inking them in brown. The photos were completed on a pre-made digital file from the now defunct Scrapbook etc. site; trimmed and mounted on a darker brown. The main title was die cut with the Stampin’ Up alphabet dies. The brown was glued to two pieces of cardboard from a cereal box first. I also die cut the alphabet letters in black which were glued down first and then the brown ones on top but off-sided to form a shadow. The green box in the lower right was stamped with an old stamp set which seemed appropriate for this layout. It was then mounted on the same brown. The journaling was computer generated on beige; mounted on brown and added with a dimensional glue strip. The green tags were glued down but I added the brown nail head brads for more interest.
That’s all for a miserable-weather Saturday, 2017-03-18
