I recently shared this layout featuring photos from my son’s Cub Scout Camporee. I included 13 photos in that layout so I didn’t have a lot of room for journaling. I created a second layout featuring a large photo and journaling on his favorite activities and all the fun things we did that day.
I started with a Whisper Cardstock base and added The Happy Camper Cut File from The Cut Shoppe on Colonial White Cardstock. I knew I wanted to back the cut file but I didn’t have a patterned paper that I liked. So I grabbed a couple tones of silver acrylic paint and mixed those colors with black acrylic paint until I achieved the color I was looking for. I really like how the brush strokes almost have a woodgrain look!
Once the paint had dried I used multiple layers from the Urban Paper Packet to back my photo. I also included a lot of products that have been looming in my stash for a long time-including the silver bracket frames, stickers from the retired CTMH Jackson line, vellum stickers, CTMH cork chevrons, a tag and twine! The title is a wood grain sticker sheet from Basic Grey. For the finishing touches I incorporated the journaling by writing around the cut file. When I think of camping I think of laying under the stars so I splashed Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine in the corners of the page.
I’m linking this layout to The Cut Shoppe ‘Cut It Out’ March Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
Super cute layout!
