Well being on the DT over at Creative Craft World has opened a few firsts doors for me.
When i originally started 'playing' with paper. I was hoping to start scrapbooking. I bought papers and had ideas. But didnt seem to manage to do anything further. I then started creating cards and forgot about the pages that i had so lovingly wanted to put together.
When Lou said that our challenge would be to create a layout, i think i must of turned a funny shade of white !! Heavy breathing must of set in too LOL.
All that aside i set to work and here it is. Choccys 1st layout :o) A page just for my dad.
I used a strip of a full sheet of Cherry arte Arcade. Alien invasion. I loved this paper and somehow wanted to incorperate it into my design. I cut it using my Purple cow cutter with a scalloped blade so it would blend in a little.
I searched for 2 photographs that had photos of my dad and tried to think of a title for my layout.
So that the photographs were able to hide some journalling i made a pocket at the back of them. But backing the photo in Bazzill Basics Yukon Gold ( as it matched the background sheet i chose with a few stars on it.) I then used plain white onto that to make a pocket. I cut tags using my cricut and used ribbon from my stash to be able to remove the tag.
I then used my cricut to do some of my title,part was wrote by hand using a white Inkessentials pen.
Making the page appear as if it was split into 3 gave me the correct feel for 2 photos and my title. So i split sections 2/3 off with navy ribbon from my stash.
Space rockets and UFOs were cut using my Quickutz dies. I used my white pen to doodle 'flying/movement' lines underneath the rocket and ufo's.
So thats it now ive started .... hopefully . There will be no stopping me ;o)
I hope you enjoy looking at my 1st layout as much as i enjoyed making it.
