Try It Out Tuesday #26 - Scrap It!

Welcome to Try It Out Tuesday! This week's challenge (TIOT26) from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design is to create a scrapbook page featuring any Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD or Victoria Case for SCACD image! Any size layout will do. :) You can see all the details and all the projects on the SCACD blog.

Well I'm embarassed to say it has been well over a year since I have scrapped. In fact, I can't believe it's July already. The photos in this 8x8 layout were taken just about 1 year ago, when we moved to our new house. One of the first tasks for my DH (and DS #1, as you can see) was to put up a swing set and a FENCE for the back yard. Here they are priming and painting the boards to make the post-and-rail fence that DH built -- it's white of COURSE!

This was a perfect challenge for me as I had these photos sitting here, and who better to pair them with than the darling Little Helper from Anki's Sweethearts? I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Some highlights with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done, then cut him out. I cropped and matted my photos and set them aside while I decided on the background piece. In the end I pulled out the Scor-Pal and scored every inch, then rotated one turn and scored every OTHER panel every 1.5" to simulate plank boards all put together. I hand-made the "nails" with the tip of the scoring tool. You should be able to get a good view if you click the picture for the extra-extra-large view.

The angled photo and the Little Helper are up on dimensionals. I printed the title on the computer and colored with Copics as well. The orange paperclip and the fence were in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to scrap along with us this week on the SCACD blog!
