Leicester Top The Table Layout (for Jones Crafts)

Good Ol Sport Layout

No apologies here if I have any of the facts wrong. I’m really not a football fan, let alone a No.1 Fan, but when working with Good Ol’ Sport papers from Graphic 45 for Jones Crafts, I had to come up with another idea. And what better sporting achievement to immortalise in scrapbook form?

I swiped thinned gesso over the background and splattered some more, drying before I edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used my Silhouette Cameo and Connect plugin for Illustrator to convert the crest into a cut file and cut it from the papers. Unfortunately, my transfer paper was a tad too sticky and removed the printed layer in places. I think it lends an athletic sports fashion distress finish, so coloured the torn bits with a mix of Faded Jeans / Stormy Sky / Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. The fox head is coloured with Scattered Straw / Mustard Seed Distress Inks. Add the rest of the elements from the coordinating chipboard die cuts, die cuts and stickers, and embellish with soluble black pencil for shadows.

Oh the challenges of working on a design team with themes that really don’t come naturally!

  1. Well you´ve definitely done a great job anyway, even it wasn´t your thing, and that is one of the skills we devellop, when you work with these things, and the same issue, if you´re asked to make a card for someone you don´t know, so it´s nessecary to be able to do, and you´ve certainly done a really good job on this one here, it´s awesome, and I´m pretty sure any footballfan would love to get this card, no doubt.

  2. Somehow stumbled across this page today, what a fabulous layout. Love the distressed look and the use of the embellishments. Also like the way the emblem has been coloured. Being a big Leicester fan I would put this in a frame and hang it in my craft room.
