When’s Recess?!

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.

Most of all the supplies I used are from Claudine Hellmuth’s HSN paper crafting kits.  Here, in this detail above,  I am layering a chipboard piece on top of a sticker, making a large stack of books.

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!
