So here is my title close up. A quick note on the mini letters; I printed these out on my computer, cut them out and then used alcohol ink on the edges. Very easy!! As for the corrugated cardboard letters I did the following.
1) Before I peeled off my top layer, I drew the letters on the cardboard then cut them out.
2) I then peeled off my top layers to reveal the inner part of the cardboard.
3) I chose some crackle paint as a base on my cardboard. I do that most of the time, because it helps add texture. After that I used green and brown alcohol ink and topped it off with the rust color as well. I just love that color!! They came out in a sort of a camo look which is awesome for this boy page.
I again printed all my photos on matte paper because I knew I would be distressing them. I sanded over all of them and a bit more heavy sanding on the edges. I dripped some of my rust colored alcohol ink on this photo below.
Here is my little scroll that I rolled up. I just took some tag board and cut a strip long enough to roll and wide enough to tuck in a tag. I distressed the edges and tied some twine around it. I could have just used this to write in my journaling, but now I don't have to worry about undoing it. So I wrote on a section of paper and rolled it as well, then attached some twine to the end and stuck it into the scroll.
Thanks for looking and God Bless!!
