Another layout

Another layout for the Online Scrapbooking Weekend hosted by Shimelle. This challenge was to use a printable made by Mary Anne Walters. You download it at the bottom of this post. You can see the details of the challenge at that link.

My printer is out of color ink, so I had to improvise. I printed the journaling box in grey-scale. Then I colored it with a orange marker. It actually worked out better for me, because the original colors didn't work with my chosen papers.

Supplies: Gray cardstock - unknown; Pattern papers (including the orange, which is a backside of a print) and Thickers - American Crafts; Small letter stickers - Making Memories; Ribbon - Michaels

I went ahead and used the same collection of American Crafts products, since they were already out in front of me. This layout started out with the title on the printable journaling block. Then I flipped through my photos and found something that worked with the colors in the paper. And notice that the "N" in FUN is really a "Z" turned on it's side. And that worked because I could fit those smaller stickers under it. I love when things fall together like this.

I have millions of this type of photo. I boogie board every time we go to the beach. And Mark always gets the camera out and takes photos of me. So finding a bathing suit that matched the colors in the paper was pretty easy.

Interesting. I love your trick of printing in greyscale and colouring. I ha thought of the colour not being right and people altering that with PSE, but not being out of printer ink :) nice save!
