Here is my final page for ‘Crazy Monday‘ kits. I used the current sketch over at ‘Sketchabilities’ as the basis for this page. I took the photos last weekend when my little son Benji did his first ever jazz dance exam. He wasn’t a bit nervous (as you an see) and enjoyed showing me his ‘air guitar’ technique for his main dance!!!
I can honestly say that I have used up every scrap of paper from the kit but I still have some embellishments left for future pages 🙂 I sprayed my background cardstock through a Tim Holtz sunburst mask and added some blotches and drops. Once again I piled up left over pieces of patterned paper and vellum to mat my photos.
I created a title using a miscellaneous collection of die-cut letters from the kit and mini-alphas that I had in my stash. I mounted them all onto a tag from the ‘Crate Paper’ miscellany bag. I painted the word ‘today’ from the ‘Studio Calico’ wood veneers with black distress paint then drew on faux stitching with a white gel pen.
Finally I hand wrote my story onto a journalling card and added a little stamping to complete the page.
I hope that I have managed to inspire you to have a look at the awesome ‘Crazy Monday‘ kits – they really are crammed full of goodies – easily enough for 3 or 4 layouts (more if you don’t layer elements quite as much as I do!).
A huge thanks to you Annelie for the opportunity to guest design for you this month!
