My Soccer Boys :)
I got the inspiration from seeing my little 2-year old dressed up in his england soccer strip. Since all my boys are soccer crazy I thought that it would be really cool to do a page with all the boys dressed in their soccer strips. This weeks sketch from Sketchy Thursdays was perfect because it has four photos incorporated in the design. Once again I used my amazing OA 'Sidewalk' papers. They are so bright and versatile and match almost any kid-related theme. First I swiped my background paper (from my Prima ledger stack) with blue acrylic paint roughly around where I planned to place my photos. Then I stamped on a couple of circles using a cup rim and my black paint dauber. I used the Sidewalk 'Jump Rope' border paper to cut strips to layer behind my photo cluster, then I added various stickers and embellishments in tiny clusters around my page's main focus. A small collection of embellishments in the upper right corner along with the title balances out the layout.
