Poor guy. Earlier, he said his only symptom was his eyes couldn't stay open. Too true!
We had to make a Target run for sick stuff, and he decided that a blue raspberry ICEE might make him feel better. It did for a while.
While he napped, I decided to scrap some photos of him riding his bike a year ago and now to show his progress. I used this week's color scheme at the Color Room for it.
Here's how the layout started:
Nice, but a little blocky. I thought I needed to do some layering of round stuff to break that apart.
When I layer I try to do so in two stages:
- Flat stuff (stitches, stickers, patterned paper, stamps, mist, paint, die cuts, etc.)
- Dimensional stuff (buttons, flowers, chipboard, brads, etc.)
I always layer the flat stuff first, then move to the dimensional stuff. First, I did some machine stitching:
Then I hand-stitched, layered a sticker and some chipboard and ended up with this:
When I cluster layers around a page, I tend to put them next to important things, in this case the title, the focal point photo, and the journaling.
Hopefully Dominic will be alert enough later on today to enjoy his page.
