Our Hero

***If you are looking for the American Crafts Blog Hop, please go HERE.

I was so excited to see today's article at Get It Scrapped!, as one of our CT choices:  Style-Inspired by Superheros and Comics.  Superheros are iconic and loved by young and old.  We all have our favorites, and I'm sure at one time we've dreamed of being a Superhero.  So needless to say, I was very excited to be one of the Creative Team working with this style!  And I couldn't think of a better hero than daddy, and had a perfect photo from this past Father's Day to use on my layout.  Here is what I created:

We took this photo on Father's Day, after leaving the Sunday morning church service.  I knew the Superhero/Comic Book inspiration assignment, would be perfect with this photo.  I wanted to use the Party with Amy Locurto collection from Pebbles Inc., to create a Superhero look on my layout. This line uses Primary Colors, stars, talk bubbles, and Superhero images, which worked perfectly for the look on my layout.  I also incorporated more stars using wood veneers and a custom cut Cameo background.  To add a little graphic touch to go along with the Superhero look, I added in some touches of Black with my stitching and by adding Black spray mist to the wood veneers stars.

I also wanted to share the Free Star/Circle Cut File I created for this page.  I only have it available in the Studio Version, which you can download HERE.

Supplies:  Patterned Paper:  Pebbles Inc., Thickers, American Crafts, Wood Veneers: Studio Calico, Freckled Fawn, UmWow  Studio; Spray Mist:  Studio Calico & Heidi Swapp; Flair Buttons: The Paper Bakery; Font:  Anime Ace; Die Cut Machine:  Cameo Punch:  EK Success
