Welcome to Jennifer Grace Creates Blog Hop Event Focus Your Craft and Soul.
It's good to see you.

Now onto my part of the hop. I have a layout to share with you today...
I imagine there are many of you who play a sport or have someone in the family who does.
Whether it's football, tennis, gymnastics ... or Rugby, as in my case.
The season has ended for the boys now and it's lovely to get our evenings and Sunday's back for a few weeks...before pre-season training commences, that is. I will be taking this extra time to catch up on scraping some of the hundreds of rugby photos I have. Like these ones.
I am told that playing rugby isn't just about running around with a ball... it's all about watching the game play, anticipating the next move, setting up the passes and working as a team to achieve them. It takes a lot of concentration and you have to be focused to avoid, not only injury, but giving away opportunities.
These photos show how no.3 son's focal point was set on that try line and his sheer determination (through gritted
teeth gum shield ) pushed him through five boys to get there (he told his brothers it was nine.. i wasn't going to stand in the way of a good story, was I :) !! )
I used lots of patterned layers to build up a background, after applying textured paste through a stencil. A little green ink was added to the paste....I didn't mix it to well which has given it an uneven colour overall I kinda like.
How do you like the acrylic shapes that are popping up? Have you used them? I've used a few now and they really do give dimension to your project. I used an acrylic title at the bottom on the page. It was hard to photograph, it reads "the story of today"
and another quick close up photo.
Thank you so much for stopping by.... to continue the hop head on to Leslie, if you get lost head back to Jennifer Grace Creates.
Remember Jennifer has a whole weekend of fabulous blog posts to share with us :) Have a lovely weekend creating.
