So we are now on day four of our fun little hop through this year's Stampin' Up! Artisan Award winning projects (as if you didn't know that from the title, lol). You should have arrived here from the talented Laura Mellinger's blog, and if not there is a full list of all of the blog's at the end of this post:)
Today I decide to share another one of my scrapbook pages. I really love how this page turned out and it was the second projects that I had completed. These pictures just crack me up. I have very few photos of my son as he usually never stands still long enough for me to get a good one. Or I end up with one that has him making faces in it-BOYS!
This photo was taken the same time as the ones that I used for the last page that I posted. As you can tell he was a pirate for halloween last year and we had a lot of fun creating a beard for him out of coffee grounds.
There is so much going on, on this page that I would have to babble more then I usually do, to explain it all:) Let's just that there is lots of destressing and sponging, misting and crumpling, sanding and even some cutting out! (I really do not enjoy fussy cutting). For the title I actually cut out the letter "X" from the Newsprint Designer Series paper and I created the "treasure map" also using this DSP and some Very Vanilla card stock. The journaling was created in My Digital Studio and I used the Extreme Elements stamp brush (in MDS) to create a background then typed the journalling. There is even a little sewing on this one! I am not a sewer;I am a wanna be sewer, so thank you to my wonderful downline and friend Leigha for helping me with this one (she was so patient showing me what to do).
The bottom two photos were matted on More Mustard then Basic Gray Card stock. The DSP behind the photos is from First Edition and it was stamped with images from Extreme Elements and Artistic Etchings. Then of course destressed!
