I am back from my blog break to share my scrapbook layout created for the Get It Scrapped article about two part titles on scrapbook pages. For my layout I wanted some metallic letters to suit the cute photograph of my son dressed up as Rob the Robot. I decided to create my own using some mirrored sheet by Tim Holtz. It is thicker than card and comes with a protective layer over the mirror surface, so you can write on the protective layer not directly on the mirror sheet if you don’t want the pen to show (I used a CD marker so it didn’t smudge) and then cut it out by hand. I added some texture to the alphas using a texture fade embossing folder and my sizzix. After peeling off the protective film I coloured in the centre of my letters R, B and O since it would have been too difficult to cut out the small pieces.
I decided to use all capital letters for my hand drawn alphas and then used a silver pen to handwrite in a cursive style for the “the” part of my title. By mixing fonts and styles of alphas it adds visual interest to your title work. You can see more ideas in the article at the Get It Scrapped blog here.
To create my layout I went with a bit of star theme to support the idea of space, the colours silver and black, letters (relating to the kindy theme), cogs and metal embellishments. I added some texture to the by distressing the edges and tearing the silver paper to have uneven edges. If you have any questions about how I created this layout, leave me a comment and I will be sure to reply.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be back to regular posting on Friday.
