This is the sketch for March...
...and I rotated it ninety degrees to suit my landscape-orientation photo, like so:
I started with my photo, an action shot of my son in his kung fu class. Words are an important component of any OUAS layout, and this time I placed my title and journaling directly on my photo, so that they wouldn't get lost in the busy-ness of the page.
I wanted all the embellishment that I added to the page to reflect the idea of movement and energy. I achieved a lot of this through different stamping techniques.
|Seeing double is a sure sign that things are moving fast! I double-stamped the rocket ships in green and black ink.|
|I layered stamped images in black and green ink.|
|And then I layered some more stamped images, for an even greater sense of movement.|
|I dragged the chevron stamp around the edges of the page to create a border.|
I also used the string painting technique to add energetic swirls of sparkly green paint to my layout.
Finally, I layered some green doilies behind the photo of my son. Their metallic, reflective surface adds oomph to the page.
This layout is a bit different from my usual style, but I think it perfectly reflects the atmosphere of weekends in the Price family.
Speaking of weekends, I hope that yours is off to a good start. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
