Today's challenge was to prepare a card or Project using Pictures. I took this as a great opportunity to start my Christmas Crafting. This Scrapbook on the Wall Page will be a Christmas Present for my 11 year old Son Jonathon...........Shhhhhhhhhh Don't tell him!!!!!!!
Jonathon is generally more an artist than an Athlete (hmmmmmmm takes after me!) but after having the opportunity to play tackle Football last year, he has become a Football Fanatic!!!! This year he played on the Defensive and Offensive Line. He quite enjoyed playing with his age group this year. Last year, he played in a different League and given his size and stature, was a nine year old playing with 12 and 13 year olds! Needless to say and in his words, he spent most of the season on his butt. I admired his determination to stick it out and play again this year. He hopes to play in High School and I will be behind him all the way!!!!!
Scrapbook on the Wall is a very neat and simple project. A few tips for success:
- Purchase a canvas and paint the background with acrylic paints. I painted this canvas with Black and then used MM Copper Scrapbook Glaze drybrushed through for some contrast.
- Ensure that you use a very strong adhesive to secure your elements. I use Sticky Strip to Secure photos, matting and chipboard as it is quite durable. I am not all that concerned about keeping everything acid free in this case as over time, the pictures and element will fade with light exposure (I'll do an archivally safe layout for his scrapbook!)
- Follow the same layout principles as you would with cardmaking and scrapbooking and you will have an attractive and well balanced layout.
