I am applying this over at Creative Scrappers for their sketch #163 this week and also at Scrapbookers Anonymous for using paper that you have a large supply of or a hard color to use...and mine is green papers_ When I go into a store that color(green) screams at me and cries out loud until I buy some more...lol. So I thought this sketch and challenge of color (monochromatic) worked out well for this photo of my son at his 8th grade Graduation in 2005. His school colors were green and gold/yellow.
I used alot of scraps from my stash and embossed the squares with my Cuttlebug/folders and then inked all the edges in a light brown. I used my Cricut cartridges Printing Press and GBS for the stars and the title blocks tied on with twine. Added a few star brads and some misc stamps by Autumn Leaves and did my own journaling and woolah!!! it was done in just over an hour...Yeah ! I'm on a roll now- so off to start another layout.
