my focus today was on the "wood" included in the Today is the Day kit by Scrapbook Circle. This layout was featured on the blog yesterday.
here are some closeups:
These pictures were taken last fall. My family and I went on a trip of a life time, I NEVER thought I would be able to go back east to see such historical places. I LOVED it, we went several places in 10 days. This was our first stop after a red eye and no sleep; Gettysburg.
For this layout I printed both of my pictures on the same 4 x 6 sheet, I made each picture a 3 x 4 in photo shop elements. THIS youtube video gives you a step by step on how to do it, it's really handy and super easy!
After I printed my pictures I then matted them with white then I wanted some pop of color against the wood grain so I added the blue. To add a bit more blue to the layout I used the tiny letters as part of the title..
I got a little hybrid and printed off my journaling with Traveling Typewriter, a free font I downloaded from DaFont from HERE. Don't ya just LOVE typewriter fonts? When I printed and cut my strips I didn't worry to much about being even, I just trimmed them as close to the words as I could get and still be able to read the journaling...
