My first layout is based on a couple pictures of my boys wearing their Steelers' thermals:
This page is a bit "grungier" (if that's even a word) than I usually do, but it seemed to fit with the theme.
As a bit of background, my husband and I are both from western Pennsylvania, so we're Pittsburgh Steelers fans. We transferred to south Georgia in 2008 for my husband's job, and after a year or so of living down here, I stumbled on some Steelers shirts at our local Old Navy. Of course, I had to buy them for my boys! ;)
Back to my layout - the Thickers were white fabric, but I took the yellow acrylic paint and colored them:
I also used the paint and some black ink with the roller stamp to create the page border:
In the above picture, you can see that I distressed the edges of the patterned paper and pictures, and painted and inked around the journaling circle. There's also some polka-dot rub-ons thrown in there...I was totally channelling my inner Christy Tomlinson! :)
Has anyone else scrapped a layout based on a favorite sports team? I'd love to see what you've created...please feel free to share a link in the comments or add a photo to our Facebook group.
