YPP 12 x 12 Layout Challenge ~ My Dad…

This is the very first,  fully completed layout page I have ever done, and it’s a layout of my dad..

This is the sketch given as a guide, it’s the February challenge over at Your Paper Pantry hosted by Cari and sponsored by Lindy’s Stamp Gang.

Here’s what I did with my layout… I went for the vintage shabby look

I chose the Ella Blue Paper Collection from g.c.d. Studios

I incorporated Lindys Stamp Gang Moon Shaddows and Starburst Stains into the Layout…

My Dad is the handsome chap driving

I also hand dyed the flower and the Seam binding with the Van Dyke Sepia


and instead of attaching a journalling spot, I just drew some lines and then wrote a wee bit about my dad

More Seam Binding and 3 gold stars.. cause my dad was fab

Special thanks to Cari for hosting this and getting me to think outside the cardmaking box that I bury myself in 😉
