Good morning! A couple of weeks back I was thrilled to be included on the 'Boys 2 Men' themed week on the Just Nick blog! With two sons, I have plenty of rough and tumble pages to scrapbook.
It has been awhile since I made a page for my oldest son's album. Now that he's 10 the picture opportunities with him are fewer and farther between. Fortunately, I had managed to capture this recent picture of him with one of his latest lego creations. Since this is such a big part of him and what he enjoys, I knew it deserved to be highlighted in his scrapbook.I used the Open Triangle cut file to fill the background of my page. I cut various sizes of the triangles out of white cardstock and used a combination of both the positive and negative cuts.
Filling the insides of the open triangles with varying patterned papers provides a fun way to add color and embellishment to the page. I dug into an older Studio Calico 6X6" patterned paper stack and the Echo Park Teacher's Pet collection to fill my empty triangles, embellishing some of them with enamel dots and/or machine stitching.
My title and journaling are both tone on tone, to keep the focus on the picture and design.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope you are finding some time to get crafty this week!
