When I saw this challenge I knew I had just the photos I could use, and the start of a layout I had been procrastinating about for some time.
This 2 page layout is the start of more pages depicting a tour we took our youngest son on in 2004 to his dream team's ground, Anfield in the UK. As Aussies, this was a big thing!
I had good intentions to make this layout something different and special knowing how much he would treasure it, but I'd set myself this challenge and time wasn't on my side, but I think he will still like it.
I wanted to do something with mixed media so I had everything out, but after lots of moving things around, cutting, sticking, unsticking and frustration, I finally opted for the simple way out.
The soccer ball was a template I'd downloaded from the net, together with the collage, and I just added text to make it more personal. More soccer balls were copied and stuck on circles. I had intended to make these but the clock was ticking and I decided why make things harder for myself. 😁
It still lacked something, and I was about to start flicking paint when I remembered I had just the stamp set...ink blots. I did get a little carried away but it is supposed to give the impression of dirt.
A few more embellishments added and my eureka moment had arrived.
Thank you for taking time to look at my layout. Happy day
