My son was bored one day and the next thing I knew, my favorite fuzzy socks were being worn by a basset hound. Gotta love a doggie that appreciates a good pair of fuzzy socks! For this layout, I sketched out an outline for the V shape at the top. I had planned to just lay strips of patterned paper in the outline, but then I decided to slice the lines with my exacto knife so that I could weave the paper into the page. It adds some cool dimension.
I swear, that boy changes every single day. He is officially taller than me now, which kind of breaks my heart into a million pieces. For this layout, I cut long rectangles from the patterned paper and then sliced those in half on a diagonal to create these triangular shapes. I snipped the edges to add another V into the ends of them. I doodled the clouds and then cut them out and adhered them with dimensional tape.
And now for the sad news.. Well, sad-ish anyway. I am going to have to take a break from designing for teams for a while. I started working on my phd this summer and I just can't devote the time that is needed to meet deadlines. I'm certainly not going to quit scrapping, I'm just going to have to scrap when I can. Hopefully that will be often. I sincerely appreciate all the teams that have given me a chance to work with them. Hopefully I can get back into designing for companies when I'm officially "Dr. Sindi". :)
