george at five: painting by the numbers...

Hello all! I'm sharing a layout today for the brand new Issue: Painting by the Numbers over on the Paper Issues blog. As soon as I saw the Waffle Flower stamp set the creative team was sent to use, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. Our oldest, George, turned FIVE in December and I love this photo I snapped of him wearing his birthday crown from his school party.

I started off with the Crate Paper Boys Rule collection in front of me and pulled out a blue-ish/aqua cardstock to coordinate. Using a Versamark ink pad, I stamped the open number 5 over and over to created a waterfall effect down the page. Using mainly the cutaway sheet in the 6x6 paper pad, I pieced together my embellishments to frame the photo and allow the stamped background a starring role. Speaking of stars, how awesome is that gold puffy star? It's actually May Arts ribbon!

The much of the Boys Rule collection is in stock at Paper Issues, along with so much other awesomeness! Pick up something to get your creativity flowing at 20% off using code JENBOOM
