Edit: Made the 2 page layouts clickable to view full size.
I went to visit my nephew and his grandparents on their farm, and then scrapping ensued. A lot of the papers and letters are from a paper pack called "Boys to Men" by Hot Off the Press.
This first page is of him "helping" to build their new pool house. I made the caution tape and "men at work" sign in Illustrator and printed them, the rest is paper and stickers.
This one is him riding his bike. Everyone asks "where did you get that bike embellishment?" and I will tell you: Michaels.
For this one I made the words with the train tracks in Illustrator.
This is a two page layout showing a painting he did, and a new one he's working on. The splatter painted background paper I made in Photoshop. The colors didn't come out exactly right in my picture of the layout and I tried to fix them best I could but it's still a little washed out.
Another two page of him playing in a pile of dirt. I'm pretty proud of the muddy boot prints. I found an image I liked on the web, resized and duplicated it, printed it on adhesive vellum, cut them out, stuck them down, then blotted them with a wet napkin to make the splotches.
This one is of his grandma and her horses. The quote says "Horses know when you're happy, know when you're comfortable, know when you're confident, and always
know when you have carrots."
This is him playing at the very top of the hay bales in the barn. I made the letters in Photoshop by filling them with a section of the hay from the photo, but with the colors intensified.
For this one I made the leaves in Photoshop (with a leaf brush I downloaded, but I colored them myself)
And on this one I only made the heart with the journaling and the little hearts, everything else was bought. It's hard to tell but the little ones have shiny puffy paw stickers on them.
Thanks for looking! All comments welcome.
