Hello Everyone, my layout today is of a very special photo from an amazing day! The AFL Grand final is a HUGE deal in Australia, a little bit like the “Superbowl”. It is always held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, however, because of a Covid outbreak and everything being in lockdown in Victoria they moved the Final to Perth WA. Our neighbours have friends who are Melbourne Football Club members and luckily for us they not only shared their barcodes for tickets but also had two extra for Kyden and I.
Usually an Eagle (West Coast Eagles) we changed to a Demon for the day to cheer and barrack loud – and they WON.
When I received the Color Swatch Inkwell collection I knew it would be perfect for this exact photo.
I have started with Inkwell paper #4 as the base and cut a rectangle out of the middle to use as a photo mat then used Inkwell paper #1 as the main paper, cutting it down to 11.5 x 11.5 so there is a frame around it.
To add the pop of red needed I have used one of the ARToptions Holiday wishes papers as a photo mat and punched a strip for the Inkwell laser cut to sit on, along with one of the red laser cut frames and Salsa tickets layered with the Inkwell ticket essentials.
The Envelope bits were perfect for some of the journaling with added tickets and leaves to decorate the envelope. I have layered lots of the Inkwell laser cuts together with frames, tickets, leaves and paper from the amazing Collage sheet pack.
There is hidden journaling as well to add the story of why the Grandfinal was in Western Australia and how we got tickets to go with a chipboard Geo frame from the Vintage Artistry Everywhere collection as a pointer.
I have curved the laser cut leaves to add dimension and layered them underneath the bottom of the photo then added lots of the Inkwell Acetate leaves.
Then to finish off my page I have added chipboard pieces from the Vintage Artistry Everywhere collection “Awesome” along with the crosses and “On the bucket list” bookplate.
