A is for

This layout is for Color Combo’s Galore #209 (theme: create a project focusing on a single person or object). I thought these photos worked well with the combo and I was also inspired by the inspiration board to design the layout a bit like the bookshelf on the photo, in three horizontal ‘shelves’. Here's my layout:

The background patterned paper was stamped with a text dot stamp in Versafine Smokey Grey and then again with a swirl stamp using Archival Vermillion ink. The teal cardstock opens up and the journaling is underneath it (I wrote pretty much journaling about how he was when he was 4 months old). The ‘A’ was embossed with several layers of UTEE, finishing off with a layer of red embossing powder.

Thanks for looking!!

Supplies: Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous flourish stamp; Hero Arts text dots, apple, and letter stamps; GCD Label stamp; BasicGrey, Pink Paisley patterned paper; KI Memories lace paper; MME and Scrapbook King rub-ons; October Afternoon sheep sticker; MM chipboard letter, letter stickers and definition stickers (‘bliss’ and ‘smile’); Tim Holtz Sizzix mini tag and labels die; 7G photo turn; Fiskars border punch.
