One of my favorite challenges on Splitcoaststampers is the Inspiration Challenge. Every week they show you some pictures of regular items and you are asked to create a card/project based on the piece. I just love how seeing a picture of something other than a card, inspires me to create something based on that picture! This week, they showed pictures of Lang Calenders. The second I saw the picture of the crayons and children, I thought of a scrap book page. I ultimately want to make a complete scrap book that would be solely focused on a child's grammar school years. So this will be one of the pages in the book. When, and if, I ever finish the book, I'll be sure to post it! LOL!
To make my page, I started with an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of "Taken With Teal" card stock. I put a smaller piece of black card stock over that and hand wrote the title with a white gel pen. The crayons are stamped images from the retired Stampin Up! set 'Golden Rule Day'. I cut them out and pasted them to the page. The rest of the page is designer paper from DCWV 'The Grade School Stack'. The sub-title is hand written on a piece of 'Naturals Ivory' card stock and sponged with 'More Mustard'. I cut a black piece of Card Stock to fit a 4 x 6 photo, and I placed another piece of "Naturals Ivory" Card Stock behind it.
Have a wonderful day! Amy

These pages are awesome Amy. As a child I loved nothing more than a 64 box of crayons. I used to take them out and resort them as much as I colored with them. (I know, strange) Thanks for sharing some scrappin'.ReplyDelete
Oh -- how fun, Amy! There's nothing better than a new box of crayons! :)ReplyDelete
