She said 'Grid' I thought... hmm...
Been wanting to do a Brady Bunch style page about us being a mixed family for awhile now...
Here's your chance, Go for it!
...So I did.
The 'base' is a flipped over piece of really, really ugly (The Stack #1 for the long time scrappers,) piece of pattern paper. I needed something thin because it was going to get layered and I was never, ever going to use that pattern paper where it would show.
The pictures were a hoot to do... hung a sheet on a door, had everyone don black T-Shirts, stand in front and make some faces! I took pictures of everyone looking up, down, forward and to the sides... I didn't know who was going where. *BONUS* I now have a file full of these pictures for many future projects and I only had to hold everyone hostage with the camera this once! lol
I downloaded the Brady Bunch Font free online and used it for all the title/journaling. Printed with a shadow then inked over in teal and yellow Stampin'Up! ink spots. I drew the grid on the paper in pencil before I started so it was easier to position all the bits. Then laid 1/2" strips of black card-stock down only after everything else was just right. Last touch was stamping the 7 gypsies 'Together' stamp in the top left square.
No fancy embellishments needed, the Grid itself made the design!
