When I saw this sketch on the Creative Scrappers blog the other day, I knew it would be perfect for a photo that I had of my nephew. Looking at the photo colours, I thought to use Echo Park's For the Record 2 Documented which I had in my last kit from the Nook before their closing... that sadly until this point had sat untouch. Add in a red piece from their For the Record collection and it provided just the right colour contrast and photo coordination.
|Supplies: patterned papers, letter stickers, stickers, chipboard (Echo Park), red chipboard letters (Pink Paislee), circle punches (Creative Memories and Stampin'Up), ink and pen (CTMH)|
I sanded a large circular area to mute the boldness of the awesome number background paper a bit just to keep the focus on the photo and elements. I used cast iron metal home decor stars to trace just the right size stars that were needed and I used stickers from both collections. I inked up the edges on all the pieces and lastly added a titch of faux stitching.
Gotta love it when it all comes together!
