FYI: The Imagine will not tell you what the final size is on your image when you select fit to page so when you go to layer it doesn't always turn out. I had to trim mine for it to fit.
All the photos are matted with black cardstock. I like the way the black is neutral yet makes things pop off the page! I stamped "All Star" in Staz-on on the photo.
The letters are cut from Plantin Schoolbook at 1.8". The shadow is in Yellow (rgb 254, 194,51) and the top is in Blue (rgb 0, 113, 188).
The arrangment of the pictures was all based on the photos themselves. Both had things in them I didn't want to show, so I strategically overlapped them to "crop" those parts out!
After adhering the football to my background paper, I stamped the stars using Versamark ink. I used perfect pearls to get them to stand out. I smeared them and needed to plan a recovery for this! Who knew it was so messy! Apparently not me!
I placed my photos and my title and I'm almost done. Just need to add some journaling.
Ok, so I have given tips on my last few posts and I was feeling bad for not having one for this week, then I had an a-ha moment. This is not my idea, I saw it on a blog or video somewhere so I am not taking credit for it but I'll pass it along 'cause it's a good one!
You'll have to excuse my mat. I know, it's filty, BUT, it's like one of those well seasoned cast iron skillets. It works great, just the right amount of sticky and I just can't throw it out. I know there is more life in it. It's even cracked on one edge and I am going to use it till it won't work anymore!
