Look at the difference! It needed the grunge!
So, I pulled out two shades of orange ink and a gray one. I didn't want to use black since I thought it would be too dark.
Check out the YouTube process video to see exactly what I did:
Originally I thought I'd just layer the cut pieces onto the layout and guess their location, but I decided to use the cutaway portion to use as a guide. I taped the cutaway portion down using blue painter tape since it would be easy to remove. I taped it on the top in a hinge fashion. This was a great time saver!
Then I adhered the baseballs, stars and photos to the top half of the layout. I love how this is turning out! When I was ready to place the title, I realized it needed something to rest on too so I added some more orange ink mostly on the right side of where the title would lay.
Isn't this a fun layout! MLB Opening Day is always a big deal in our household and I'm so glad that my son and hubby took pictures!
