Scrappy Baby Goodness

Finished a good chunk of photo editing today, check it out tomorrow on the Finian Road blog!

Took a break from editing tonight and pulled these pages together from this blog post (the 12 of 12: Special Delivery Edition).

In hindsight, I am so thankful that we were blogging each day from the hospital. So much of it is a blur now, and there are details from our posts that I've already forgotten.

For the layouts, I was able to pull each of the images and words together into a 5 page spread: a cover page and three images to each subsequent page.

For the 5 page spread, here's the specs:
  • The photoshop brush is from the Remember word art by Ali Edwards
  • The kit is The Photo Shoot by Christy Lyle (I'm not sure it's sold online anymore) for the papers and sampled color
  • The image on the right is of Thomas's NICU room (The Manatee Room), changed to black and white, and dropped in opacity to 25%, with a khaki color background.
  • Font is Chaparral
  • What made these layouts so incredibly simple is using the Grid No. 01 Layered Templates. I used one of them for the cover, and a second one for the 4 following pages. I rotated the canvas before beginning on several of them, to accomodate the vertical and horizontal images that I wanted to use.
  • To see this page up close, plus the four following pages, click the image below.
