Hello Jail Bird | You Rock | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone! Sue Plumb here to share my latest design team project with you. Today I have a layout I created using the ‘You Rock’ collection; a bit of mixed media; and a funny photo of one of my boys that I took recently at a theme park.

I started my page with a sheet of the ‘In Line’ paper, and I chose to run the stripes vertically to mimic the bars in the photo. I then added some extra depth to my background using a texture stamp and some grey watercolour paint. I also added some small pieces of torn striped washi tape sticker; along with a printed phrase washi sticker to the top corner of my page.

Next, I gathered together some papers to create a layered mat for my photo. The papers I used included the reverse side of the ‘In Line’ paper; ‘Night Sky’; and ‘Random’. I also use the lightning bolt strip cut from the ‘Stripped’ paper and ran it vertically through the focal area of my page. I then added some messy black cotton thread for texture and mounted my photo on top.

To embellish my page, I started by adding a few fussy cut stars from the ‘Starshine’ paper; then a couple of chipboard accent stickers, which I layered directly onto my photo.

Next, I added several wood veneer shapes around my page; including the hello word that I used as part of my title. The remainder of my title was created using some Colour Me Happy black alphabet stickers and Totally Rad wood grain alphabet stickers. I also added a few small phrase stickers from the accessory sticker sheet.

Beneath my photo I added the awesome tag rubber charm, which I tied with a small piece of twine. To finish off my layout I added some splatters of mist and a few stamped phrases and date.

Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I will be back again in a couple of weeks with another project. Until then, happy scrapping!

About the Author:

Sue is a stay at home mum of 3 (daughter Brielle, and twin sons Hunter and Kaden) and lives in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland. She began scrapping in 2008, shortly after her daughter was born. After the premature birth of her sons in 2012, she took 18 months off scrapping to concentrate on family and says she is now enjoying it more than ever. (Her biggest issue now is finding quiet time!) She currently designs for challenge blogs, and has had work published in magazines on numerous occasions, including the cover. She was also a 2017 Scrapbooking Memories magazine Creative Team member. Although primarily a 12×12 scrapper, she says she loves to dabble a bit with pocket style scrapping, art journaling, and the odd canvas and card too. She best describes her style as "versatile" - ranging from clean and linear one day, to messy mixed media the next.
