A Walk with Tin Foil Man

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Im back! More to share today, taking advantage of a quiet, rainy morning here. I have 2 more pages to share, both inspired by Stuck?! Sketches. Did you see they are having a DT call? Yep, I may have to apply. I find their sketches are designed well and easy to use. I can adapt them to to my style, or use them exactly as they are. I don't usually do one post for both challenges, but, well, today I am.

First up:

Oh, I had fun with this one. I enlarged the photo area with both the size of my photos and the layers beneath them. I have to admit, I started by wanting to use the washi at the top of the page, the colors and papers were selected based on that.  Because the papers all go together, I added some detail to he edge of the papers to give them some definition. I usually ink the edges, but wanted to try something different. The darker color of the title alphas and the page corners, keep the focus on the center of the page. 

I do like how the colors reflect a bright spring day. The walk to the park was more about the journey itself, than being at the park. I think it took almost 30 min to walk the 2 blocks. He was so interested in looking at everything around him.

Supplies: PP-MME, October Afternoon, Paper Issues Swag Bag, Washi-LoraBailora, Freckled Fawn, Hobby Lobby, Flair-October Afternoon, Freckled Fawn, doily-DoodlebugDesign, alphas-PinkFresh, Freckled Fawn, stickers-October Afternoon, Bella Blvd, mist-Heidi Swapp

Next up:

I played with this one a bit more by flipping it on it's side.  I used a journal card and a larger photo, and moved the small banners to the top as an entry into the page. I love creating energy on my pages. The falling stars do just that. Truth? I dropped them and they landed like that. A very happy accident. My favorite thing about this page? Being able to use the sports elements from the ephemera pack! Neither of my boys play team sports. The fact that his PJ's have a sports theme? Bonus!   

So, humor is something else that's always on my pages. In this case, the 'Sorry Not Sorry' as well as the title cater to that.  One night after cleaning up from dinner, my son decided he was fascinated with e tin foil wrapped loaf of bread. He held it for a long time, then tried to leave the table with it, He even tried to take it to bed. He was even smart enough to recognize that the foil wrapped tupperware,we gave him instead,  was not the same! Since then, every time we warm bread in foil, he does the same thing. But only with bread. Tin Foil Man indeed. 

Thanks for taking look at my creative view today. Ive got lots more to share, so come back again soon.
