Welcome to my Blog and coming with me on another Scrapbooking adventure with Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop.
Last month was the first time that I had taken part in the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop…It was so much fun I decided to do it again.
September our Guest Designer is Sherry Roth.
She has set her theme as ‘What Little Boys Are Made Of’
My boys are all young men now, so I sifted through all my old photo’s that I haven’t scrapped and found some I really love and have been wanting to do. I think I took about 30 photo’s of my son Patrick all dressed up as a ‘Punk Rocker’ for a Joey Scout Adventure Night. He was such a character hamming it up in front of the camera and of course I have them all on ‘film’….well digital!
I wanted the page to be fun and bright. I used ‘See a Silhouette’ Designer Series Paper as my inspiration for colour. The layout idea was cased by a sketch found on Pinterest, a great resource when looking for ideas. You can then make it your own by changing direction of photos and elements. Here I changed photo size, direction and title placement.
Tips and Tricks…
My title I printed onto a piece of ‘Overhead Transparency Film’ using my computer and Ink Jet Printer. I have had this for years and I believe you can still purchase this product. One side of the sheet has a special coating which allows ink to adhere to the transparency and dries quickly.
On this page I added two rows of stitching in black thread. If you use your sewing machine for sewing fabrics as I do. Make sure you have a sewing needle for just working with paper, as the paper will dull your needle. Your needle size should be around a 60 or 70, as you want the thread to fill the hole your needle has made. Fabric will close over a little but paper once the hole is there that’s it..that’s the size you have.
Thank you for visiting my Blog, I hope you have enjoyed it. Next is Sara Levin’s Blog Page…have fun and enjoy….
