When Amber Packer from My Minds Eye asked me to
Guest for them, I was super thrilled.
I was over the moon actually! When she sent my assignments over,
one of them included creating a 2 page layout based on a 1 page sketch,
and including instructions on how to do so.
and my instructions on how to create THIS layout:
This is "American Made" using the American Made collection!
I had been holding on to these photos of my son and my nephew for about a year now... and finally I had the PERFECT paper to showcase them.
I hand doodled the barbed wire, I used a cookie cutter to create the chicken wire look, and I used a boat load of black and brown inks to help to give these paper the distressed look.
Sometimes a layout just falls in place...and that is what this one did for me.
I have had this formulating in my head for a long time now! LOL
I love the pure country look to the over all layout, and the "Country Boy" vibe that it sends off! When these 2 boys get together...it is almost a remake of
"Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn"!
I haven't done too many 2 page layouts lately, but I have to say...I think I will start doing them again! I love the way this turned out.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a fantabulous weekend!
