I don't know about you, but for some reason, what I start out to create, hardly ever is the actual finished product.
Here was the start of the layout.
It was a just a little too busy and I felt my photos were getting lost. So I decided to keep it simple. I also changed the colors and size of the letters.
Here are the letter colors before. They were nice, but were going to get lost with the pictures.
So here are the new letters. I really do like this font!
I used the same card stock on the title letters and the basketballs to tie the page elements together. I used Ranger Glossy Accents on the inside of the letters and Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the top layer to add some depth to the letters.
I liked it, but the pictures have lots of movement and I wanted to convey the movement with the basketball embellishments. So I moved the balls around the page and the teen boy to the side. For the final touch, I added journaling. I haven't made many layouts recently, so this was fun. The font was perfect and my little Cricut mini cut the letters like butter.
