Scrapbook Friday: Character Page
I started with a layout idea from Becky Fleck's pagemaps book. I picked this layout out months ago when looking for a ideas for my photos and it turned out to be just right for what I wanted to do. I went searching for the right papers and found the colors I wanted with My Mind's Eye Laundry Line stack. I pieced all my papers together first, even using a edger for some fun on my brown strip.
Once had the photos in place I patiently went on work on Tink. I cut her 2 times (throwing away the first after not being satisfied). I find that the larger I cut my characters the better so I made her pretty big,but not to large for my layout. The face parts are always the hardest for me so I choose to color the eyes with white and the blue over that rather than use the tiny pieces.
The final touches were a journal box and title. I cut the title off the Tinkerbell & Friends cart as well and placed it where it went with the sketch. Then added a simple journal box and extra piece of "ribbon" paper on the left side. I followed the sketch pretty close and love my results.
I hope you will stop by My Cricut Craft Room today and see what the other members of the Design Team have worked up today. I am sure they will not disappoint. Have a wonderful weekend!
