Before I share today's layout with you I'd like to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments on my previous Rugby Rules post. It was great that you took the time to share rugby related scrap product links with me - even if I don't purchase all of the items, they sure have given me lots of ideas.
Inspired by one of the links, I was reminded that I have a rugby ball stamp and decided to try and re-create a rugby ball background.
Now you need to bear with me. I wasn't sure where I was going with this background when I started stamping. After scattering some stamped balls onto the patterned paper I used Jennifer new scattered triangle stencil to add some shape...followed by Mr Huey mist splats.
At this point I did think hmmmm....what now!
The thing I like when creating a background is you can... add more or cover up those little arrears that you are not too keen on and generally you really can make it work for you.
Here's how the background paper looked when the layout was completed.
I think I made it work and you know what.....I kinda like the look achieved.
What do you think?
The photo I've scrapped may not look like much...to me it captures an element of Rugby that doesn't happen often. These boys very rarely get to watch each other play. This particular Sunday No2 son's game was late starting and No1 son came and watched the last quarter. In his usual stance... hands on hips.... he stood next to his dad and
shouted offered advise from the sidelines. He really tried to help his brother. They talked tactics after the game and it was really nice to listen to them.
Have a super week and i'll be back on Friday with this weeks fancy.
P.S. On my previous rugby rules layout some of you commented on the background. It's Tim Holts faded dot stamp stencil used with some texture paste. It seems that this textured paste could be my new favourite thing. What's yours?
