FAST + FABULOUS FRIDAY NO. 6

'MY LITTLE SUPERHERO'

FOR THIS WEEK'S FAST + FABULOUS FRIDAY I'M SHARING AN 8 1/2" X 11" SPREAD I MADE ABOUT MY NEPHEW. IT CAPTURES A MOMENT WHERE WE ASKED HIM TO SHOW US HIS MUSCLES, AND...WEARING SUPER HERO PAJAMAS AND ALL...THIS IS WHAT WE GOT! I SHOWCASED THIS MOMENT WITH TEXT CUTOUTS, WATERCOLOR ACCENTS AND UNIQUE PHOTO CROPPING TO NAME A FEW. KEEP SCROLLIN' TO SEE THE REST OF THE DETAILS.

I BEGAN THIS PAGE LAYOUT DIGITALLY BY CREATING THE TEXT CUTOUT WITH MY SILHOUETTE CAMEO. I CHOSE TO USE RANDOM WORDS PERTAINING TO HIS JAMMIES (WHICH HIS COOL AUNT GOT HIM FOR CHRISTMAS), AND THE SCENARIO AND JUST LISTED THEM OUT TO CREATE THE THREE TEXT LINES. I THEN INCLUDED MY FULL TITLE 'YOU ARE MY LITTLE SUPERHERO' ON THE LAST LINE TO THE RIGHT SO IT HOLDS SLIGHTLY MORE IMPORTANCE. ONCE DONE MAKING THE CUT FILE, I CUT ONTO MY WATERCOLOR PAPER SO THAT I COULD COMPLETE MY NEXT STEPS. THE SECOND STEP I TOOK WAS TO QUICKLY BRUSH SOME BLACK STRIPES ONTO THE LOWER PORTION OF THE PAGE WITH MY WINSOR & NEWTON WATERCOLORS IN LAMP BLACK BEFORE PLACING MY OTHER IMAGES. I ALSO SPLATTERED SOME WATERCOLOR DOTS AROUND THE PAGE FOR AN ARTSY FEEL AND TO BALANCE THE IMAGERY ON THE LAYOUT.

THIS PHOTO WAS GREAT, BUT ASIDE FROM MY NEPHEW IN THE FRAME, EVERYTHING ELSE WAS PRETTY BLAND AND SOMEWHAT DISTRACTING. TO FIX THIS PROBLEM, I TRIMMED AROUND MY NEPHEW WITH SCISSORS AND PLACED HIM INTO THIS CIRCLE FRAME...AND STEPPING OUT OF IT FOR EXTRA FUN! THEN, I ADDED A SMALL CAPTION CURVING AROUND THE CIRCLE CUTOUT THAT SAYS 'THIS IS HOW HE SHOES HIS MUSCLES' TO ADD A SMIDGE OF JOURNALING ONTO THE PAGE.

AFTER FINDING THE GREAT CHIPBOARD ARROW IN MY STASH, I KNEW I WANTED TO ADD SOME OTHER SORT OF CAPTION ON THE PAGE. TO TIE THE ARROW IN, I COLORED IT GOLD WITH THE BROAD TIP METALLIC PRISMACOLOR PEN...MY FAVORITE CHIPBOARD CHANGING TOOL! THEN, I ATTACHED THE HANDWRITTEN 'LOOK AT MY MUSCLES' CAPTION WITH SMALL BRASS BRADS TO MATCH AND VOILA! THE CAPTIONING WAS COMPLETE.

I ADDED SOME 3D EFFECT TO THE CAPTION WITH POP DOTS PLACED UNDERNEATH, AND FINISHED THE PAGE BY STAPLING THIS STUDIO CALICO SCRAP PAPER TO THE BOTTOM CORNER TO REPLICATE THE STRIPES I HAD WATERCOLORED.
