Our Soccer Star using Simple Stories Bro & Co by Kerryn Fry

Good morning everyone.
Today I'm sharing my first project using the amazing collection,
Simple Stories Bro & Co.
I've selected some soccer action photos from last year's NCSS event.
Mr 16 '#22' doing what he loves in Queensland.
I decided to use B&W photos for this page
to let the colours of this collection stand out.

I love the primary colours on Kraft cardstock.
So I've started with my favourite base 12x12 cardstock.
I have decorated the background with a Vicki Boutin 'Let's Wander' stencil
and Candied Apple Distress Ink.
I've stencilled the pattern in three separate places on the paper.
The using the patterned paper You Rock,
I've hole-pinched small circles to add the the centres of the pattern.

The Journal Bits pieces provided the perfect embellishments for the page.
I've used foam tape to lift these elements
and on the bottom photo to create the extra layers.
The fake stitch lines have been added with a black gel pen
to different elements across the page.
I've tied some string to the tag for a little texture.

The patterned paper Totally Legit was a 
fabulous resource to hand-cut some extra words
and add them to the page.

The Cardstock Sticker sheet provide the 'you rock' word,
the 'Rad' tab and 'so awesome' stickers on the page.
The Journal Bits had the circle pieces  and date journal spot,
these elements were added with foam tape.

I have covered it with Black Soot Distress Archival Ink.
The soccer ball in the title has been backed with white paper,
the letters and the stars have been outlined with a white pen.

Thank you for visiting the blog today,
I hope you have enjoyed the steps in this project.
Have a wonderful weekend,
with plenty of time for crafting.
Please join us again on Monday.
