I have been wanting to do a layout using this picture of my husband and our son for over a year but every time I sat down to scrap it I ended up getting distracted, usually by something pink and girly, and it got put aside. This time though it finally came together using this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch and the aptly titled "Like Father, Like Son" paper kit from Fancy Pants. And even though it doesn't have any flowers or scalloped borders on it, I like with how it turned out.
Autumn Leaves "Cleanliness" font
I am not sure how well it comes across in the photo, but there are a lot of different textures on this one - vinyl and felt alphas, canvas trim, metal accents, crumpled paper, and the photos are matted on a piece of denim fabric which I stabilized and then sewed onto the page. I have never used fabric on a page in this way before but it was actually really easy and I love the added tactility that it brings to the layout.
Hope you're having a great weekend,
