The Graffiti collection offered just the right "vibe" for photos of these awesome young men.
I chose the page protector from the Instant Album that has six 4x6" pockets. So to create the inserts, I cut one Black Smooth Plain, and one White Smooth CS Print so they'd create the 4x6" inserts and mattes I needed for the page. To accomplish this, I had to do a little math. Math is hard. Especially without my friend Tricia to help me. But I figured it out!
- Trim both 12x12s at 11.5 and 6".
- Rotate the 6x12" horizontally, and cut at 8 and 4".
- Trim the 5.5 x 11.5 horizontally at 10.5, 7, and 3.5".
The upper left panel was created using a faux chalkboard technique. I stamped "Love" from the Collection UM stamp sheet and traced the cloud, arrows, and star shapes from the Graffiti Stencil in white chalk ink marker.
The journaling box is from the Embellishment Cutaparts. The other panels were decorated with additional stamps from the Greeting UM and Borders & Backgrounds and colored with the Neon Ink Dabbers. The heart was cut from a Pink Photo Matte using a Spellbinders die.
This page is a great way for me to document the act of kindness of these great guys. I'm so proud of you!
