The Paper Girls Challenge #200 - All About Boys

Hi Lovelies!

It's challenge time again over at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog and I'm hosting Challenge #200 so I'd really love it if you played along!  The theme is All About Boys!

If you are taking Shimelle's Start with a Sketch class my layout is based on sketch #7.2

The difference with this sketch is that most of the layering was done with things OTHER than pattered paper (although I did manage to sneak in a few more scraps than Shimelle originally intended).

There IS a process video, BUT both the lighting and my editing are not what I hoped they would be.  Time got to the better of me and I forgot about zooming in in the video editor.  I cropped out a lot since much of it was repetitive fiddling and re-sticking.


Process Video 


I do address the issue of how to tell a longer story and splitting it across multiple pages.  In this case I wanted to include three photos that illustrated the shenanigans of remote learning.  Making a separate layout for each one is kinda overkill, but two (or maybe three) layouts documenting the entire ordeal process should just about do it.

Here's the journaling if you want to have a read:

Another trick which I'm nor sure is clearly shown in the video is the doubling up on Glue Dots (like under the grey cat) gives just a bit more dimension than regular adhesive, but not so much as the shallower foam squares.  When you're tucking things under, it's a useful trick to remember.

The Title


The Embellies

The Trials and Tribulations of Remote Learning

And lastly here are a couple of masculine cards.  They were made to go overseas so they have a slight Australian vibe.  I reduced the size of cut files intended as 12x12 backgrounds so the finished cards are a bit smaller than 6" square.  Each was backed with one or more patterened papers and accented with gum leaf gut files and gold mist.  Nice and simple and binge-cutting saves time later.  I'm all about efficiency!

Love, and prolific papercrafting!
