The next thing I'd like to show you is a tribute page I made for my sister's graduation earlier this year. The sketch I followed is from Simple Scrapper and looks like this...
I decided to combine this sketch with a challenge from Rachael over at Colorful Creations. The challenge is a recipe challenge for which you are to include the following items to "create" your page:
- Texture and/or embossing
- Minimum of five circles
- One fussy cut item
I started with a grey co'ordinations embossed paper and sanded the raised areas to expose the lovely words beneath. Then I cut out nine 3x3 squares in various papers, then matted them. To follow the sketch, I placed my sister's picture in the top right corner. Then I added numerous "graduation" themed embellishments and placed my title in a large red banner. The paper in the middle on the top row had faux stitching on it, so I merely followed the pattern and hand stitched it with black embroidery thread. I fussy cut the flag from pattern paper and attached a toothpick colored with a silver sharpie marker. I wrote my journaling inside the flag to hide it. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this page came out!!!!!!! Thanks for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
