Hello all!!! Happy Father's Day to all those deserving and hardworking fathers. Whether you be a dad, grandpa or a father figure mentor, you are needed!
In honor of Father's Day today, the challenge for this week is to create a manly card. This could be a birthday card, anniversary card, scrapbook page or whatever, just have it fit for a man.
My sample for you is a scrapbook page I made in honor of my son. Last (2009) spring he was featured in the neighbors section of our town newspaper for his music. Pictured with him is Malaki at 3 months old.
I wasn't ever quite sure how I was going to put this page together, but once I found this dotted dsp, it just sort of fell together. I did have to cut up the article, which my son freaked out over, but it was the only way I could mount it on the page.
My base is 12 x 12 Really Rust textured and layered with the polka dotted dsp. Not sure who makes it. Some of the dots have a glossy feel to them. The main picture and title are matted on Old Olive and the article portion is on Cool Caribbean. I used my Really Rust marker to color the chipboard comma's and the watch parts are by Tim Holtz.
