Cubs Single Layout

I loved doing this one, because it reminds me of the trip we took to Chicago and we got to see the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals.Ill explain the different parts.

This photo is a close up of the journal square.  I stamped the guy in the lounge chair and colored him with Copic markers.  I then did a masking technique to stamp the blue and red dotted lines.  They are stamped with Distress Inks.  I wrote the journaling.

This is a view of the full page.

This is the bottom, photos are double matted.  I cute the center embellishment with my Cricut.  Two circles and the letter 'c'.  I did slightly distress the edges with pumice stone distress ink and a foam blending tool.

This is the upper portion, I love the photo of the Cubs sign.  I had photos where there were words showing, but I decided to use one without anything lit.  Then I used white Staz-on to stamp 'Cubs Win.'  I love it!!

This is a close up of the title, I stamped each letter and cut them out, I really wish I had punched them out, it would have looked cleaner, but not punch.  They are mounted with pop-up dots over strips of slightly darker paper.
