Hunger Games

I came across some more photographs from J-girl's last year of primary school, and scrapped two more layouts for her 2012 album.

This one was based on the first April sketch at Stuck?! and also the weekly challenge at Scrapbook Fantasies for the "Inspired by a movie" theme:

Kraft cardstock
Echo Park For the Record 2 - Doily patterned paper (fussy cutting)
Simple Stories Carpe Diem - Bits & Pieces die cut arrow
TCW Balzer Designs - Mini Leaf Frame 6x6 stencil


This layout was created for the April challenge at Kraft Plus:

This is the mood board that provided the inspiration:

I used kraft for the base cardstock, and black and white for everything else.  The elements taken from the mood board are the circles (fussy cut patterned paper motif) and the framed text (mixed typeface journal card).

J-girl donated her arrow pendant, which she doesn't wear anymore - perfect for this layout!  I had to stitch it on because it was too heavy to glue down.  I upcycled a  mesh fruit bag for my background, and added white Sharpie outlines to the title letters:

More arrows to tie in with the theme, this time from my old grungeboard stash, treated with white gesso and stapled on:

Kraft cardstock
MME Jubilee - Mint Julep - Journey journal card
Echo Park For the Record 2 - Doily patterned paper (fussy cut)
Tim Holtz Grungeboard arrows
American Crafts Thickers - Subway foam alphabets
Black & white brackets journal card (unknown manufacturer)
