High School Smile August 23, 2017 07:00
It is Nathalie back today with a new layout to share with you. Can you believe it is time to get the kids ready to go back to school -here in Canada-? With that in mind, i had to document the picture of my kids on their first day of high school (gr. 9 & 11 respectively).
The idea for this page was to recreate a large file, for that i trimmed the white cardstock to fit inside the layout, and used the File Folders cut file to create a large tab that hides under the layout's mat.
I glued the tab to the page's mat, followed by the trimmed cardstock. Then a bit of mixed media was used to create the background behind the picture and title (I wanted to be authentic to my kids's folders at the end of the year, so a bit of distress fits them to a tee!).
I am a sucker for large titles, so i created the one featured in this page by welding the letters from the Shattered Alpha cut file (spelling High School) with the "Smile" from the Word 4 cut file. Then used papers from Bella Blvd, to back the spaces, and attached it on top of the mixed media background using some foam tape.
Finally to complete the page, I added the b/w version of the picture to the side of the title. The Word Tab cut file was handy to create the small tab that was added to the cluster on the pictures. A few more small details complete the page.
I love the final look of the page! I hope this inspires you to document those 1st day of school smiles using some of the JustNick Studio cut files. As for me, I will be doing a small happy dance once they leave for school, followed by a few tears of sadness as they are leaving me!.
You can always contact me if you have any questions on how this page came together.
See you all soon!
