I have another layout to share that was so fun to work with! It was a submission at From Screen 2 Scrap for their February Movie Poster (Casino Jack) Challenge.
Here's the poster:
And the extra criteria:
1 pt. = Grey base cardstock
2 pts. = Playing card(s)
3 pts. = Money notes
At first, I really didn't know what I could create with this poster... until I found this photo of Andrew!!
As I scoured the rows of "stuff" at a local store, I came across a package of large bills and snatched it up, never really thinking I would actually use it... but you never know! The playing cards are extra large (possibly for those people who can't see well). Even though they were rather large, I made them work on my page.
Here's what I created using a sketch from Page Maps:
I'm so lucky to have such creative kids!!
It sure was a challenge trying to tie up this wide black ribbon like in the photo! I think I got close enough though.
Gotta love that smile... so proud of his creation with the "extra" seatbelt!!
I've used all the extra criteria too! Woohoo!
Money (not real)
Playing Cards (extra large)
Journaling Block matted on the back of the playing card
Wide Black Ribbon
Sticker Square & Word: BoBunny
Title Letter Stickers: Miss Elizabeth's
Ink: A la mode Black
Title matted on playing card
Perfect Pearls Mists: Heirloom Gold
I used a playing card for my title block. In the middle of the hearts was enough space to adhere the letters. The edges were distressed and inked. I also brushed the card lightly over ink.
Two cards were tucked under the center paper. I also added a square button photo and the word over that.
My journaling block, which was written on white cardstock and matted on the back of a playing card.
Sure wish I had this money... for REAL!! I'm imagining all the crafting stuff I could buy with just ONE of these bills! :)
All the bills and cardstock were misted with gold... which I thought was appropriate (gold... money...). At least that's how I associate it.
Here's a portion of the ribbon. After knotting it I added the buckle. The ribbon was adhered loosely so there's lots of dimension here.
I added the journaling block on the other part of the knotted ribbon.
Here's a look at the ribbon I tied... I still can't believe it looks like in the photo!!
I went digging through a "misc." box and found this cool buckle. It looks like something Andrew could have made... but then again, maybe not.
Here's a closer look at the stickers which were adhered on cardstock then the edges inked.
Here's a look at the layering above the photo. More money... I wonder if there's any way I can make it REAL? :)
