I love this picture of my son on the first day of fourth grade. He asked, “Mom, can I do a crazy one?” I said, “No”, and took a decent picture of him. Then, I said, “OK, now you can do a crazy one”…and this is the result. I’m so glad I took the crazy picture! I’ve used this image before on another project and I’m sure I’ll use it again.
In this layout I am taking the figure out of his original environment and creating a new one for him.
I took the paper airplane stickers, rubbed baby powder on the back to remove the stickiness, and applied a foam square to add dimension. Then I added the dotted flight trails with a marker.
I made custom paper by drawing around the dots with a 08 tip marker that comes pretty close to the thickness of the thought bubble outline at the top of the layout.
I added an apostrophe with a little bit of white acrylic paint and a 005 tip marker to go with the rub-on letters.
I really had fun working on this layout and the result just makes me laugh. I hope you enjoy it too!
