This was the hardest layout I have ever done. My dad died, 11th April 2012, and this is the first layout I have done of him since then. He was such a cool guy, and so handy in the garden and made me all sorts of things to play with. I used two websters paper (the same one), and then i carefully cut out the roses, and the bird house and the clocks. I layered a twiddleybitz chicken wire piece over the bottom, and then layered the 2nd page cut out pieces over the top with foam dots. I then painted and embossed some wooden twiddleybitz vine, and added roses (his favourite). I layered his photo on brown and then black bazzil cardstock. I picked up this handmade paper at Senz, which looked like wood, so i ripped that and put it underneath the photo. I then put silver nail brads all around the wood like piece, but decided that I didn't like that, so I added white roses, and wound them around the brads. I added a star at the bottom left of the picture, and then the hammer. I inked up twiddleybitz squares and added them to the top right, and just left it simple with the chipboard word DAD. A few gold brads to give the birdhouse a life. I know he would just shake his head at the layout, but this is him. My Dad.
