Here's my most recent layout, completed for the latest Whimsical Scraps and Bugs challenge. We were supposed to use the front of a magazine cover as inspiration for our projects. I focused on having one main picture and a simple clear title.
The picture is of my 3 1/2 year old DS at an American Heroes helicopter air show. He was trying on a firefighter's helmet. If you're familiar with the Station Fire in Southern California that has been burning for about 2 weeks now, it came about 5 miles away from us at its closest point. It was around this time that my son informed me that he wants to join a hand crew when he grows up. So this picture may just be a glimpse of his future...
The journaling is a letter to him regarding his future and, since it is of a more personal nature and would have distracted from the 'magazine cover' theme, I decided to put it on a hidden journaling tag behind the picture.
The next picture shows a bit of the dimension on some of the stars, which I then inked with white to further define the patterns.
Plantin Schoolbook: 'HERO' and journaling tag
Sesame Street Font: 'future' and its shadow, and stars
A Child's Year: firefighter silhouette
Cuttlebug: Divine Swirls and Swiss Dots
Thanks for looking!
