Happy Monday everyone! We are in a deep freeze here in Minnesota. I hope you are all staying warm. Over at Practical Scrappers the On Trend team is showcasing different ways to use arrows. I decided to use lots of them for big impact on this layout of my son Trenton skydiving shortly after he turned 18.
I used the BasicGrey What's Up collection again. Its perfect for this picture. The starburst on the pattern paper and the arrows draw your eyes right to the photo. I softened the look with gesso behind the photo and on the edges of the paper and photo. To soften it even more, I placed a layer of vellum and a layer of cheesecloth under the photo too. It makes me think, floating on a cloud, instead of plummeting to the ground at over 100 miles an hour!
Here are some close ups ...
Anyone else have older kids that had to celebrate turning 18 in a unique way?
Colette is about to turn 21 in a little over a week. I get to worry about her friends taking her out drinking. She has good friends though, so I will not worry too much. Enjoy your day!
