Hello everyone, Charlene here!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season! Thanks for joining me today on the blog! Today’s layout celebrates Canada’s favourite sport, HOCKEY! People ask me all the time which team I cheer for. I tell them I don’t really watch NHL hockey, I cheer for Pittsburgh only because it’s my son’s favourite team but I am a HUGE Rangers fan! Last year I was so fortunate to have a hockey mom who was an amazing photographer, she had her camera on sports mode at every game! I have so many amazing pictures of Remington from that year; I really miss her this year!
I was so excited to see that Southern Ridge had a goalie in their hockey collection! Yay!! To create the word Hockey, I first cut off the hockey player (as it was part of the word) so I could add the goalie silhouette. I stained it with Black Soot Distress stain and then added black UTEE to the top. I simply stained the goalie silhouette with black stain and added foam squares behind it to make it pop up a bit.
I added Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Stain to the star chipboard and again added black UTEE over it. I also added blue pattern paper behind the star to make it stand out a bit more. I had a small piece of the fish net chipboard lying around; it reminded me of the hockey net so it was a perfect match for the layout.
