This month I have had the pleasure of spending the weekend with my good friend Maggi. And just to get away, I was suppose to go to a bachelorette party but things change, and life is meant to be flexible and understanding. So I told the girls, I am there for bail money and I am going to take a step back from the young fun and just hang low at Maggi’s. I am just a phone call away for bail money. I have been working so much, I just needed some time to create. My list is outrageous what I want to get some of it done. This project has been on my list for a while.
Maksim is a great soccer player, I take my good camera and out of the 3000 photos I usually get about 12 that are good. These are a few from two different years.
I started with some totally boy paper and I stamping the background with the distress checkered stamp and the chevron stamp. The moving on to the background with the newer mini square stencil, I put a bold black paste over portions of the stamping. I am also trying to use up some pastes before they get hard. That is my pet peeve on that. I topped it off with the metal stencil, with a contrasting bold white crackle paste.
I laid out the papers, after the background was done, I tryuely felt like it was missing something so I grabbed a few full panels and figured I would layer them in there to pop the page more. I added the Punchinello Circle to the background. I painted it black and added some wax to the top of it.
I cut out elements of the paper pack and picked out some wood chipboard soccer balls. I quickly hand painted them and set them aside to fit in to the project.
Once Everything was set out and placed I just glued it all down. I sporadically added the soccer balls on the page. I made sure I ink distressed the edges on the project.
I tried to incorporated the soccer flair and sports flair into the piece.
Please watch for the video to come, I have some catching up to do on making some videos.
Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your crafty time.
