The challenge at Papercraft star this week is to create a St. Patrick's Day inspired project using this photograph as your inspiration.
Photograph From Amy Atlas Events
I have to say that my layout is a far cry from the photo but I did pull the green colors out of the photograph. As far as the St. Patrick's Day theme, I titled my project Lucky In Life.
I used the Numbers Background and Ruler Stamps from I Brake For Stamps to add interest to my background. For some reason when I think of Luck, I think of numbers, I guess because some people have a lucky number. The ruler goes out to 8 "inches" but I cut it off at 6 and added the button so that the ruler only showed 1 - 4 since we are a family of 4.
I also played with a little acrylic paint on the background of my layout for interest and a grungy look. I did my journaling around the perimeter of the page, and you know I had to add one of my crocheted flowers!!
I just love the way this layout came out!!
