I wanna be a Rock Star

Here is a LO I did for 52 Sketches, 52 Weeks. I decided to scrap the pictures of my son at christmas last year. He recieved a drum set. Yay! Thanks Uncle Wes! (insert sarcasm here).

This layout sort of evolved slowly as I worked on it. I started by searching my stash of paper and realized that I didn't have anything appropriate for what I wanted to create. So I set out on google to find something printable and I found this awesome Rocker background. I printed it out and used it as the backdrop for the pics. Then I decided to create my own title. So I used some basic font and a few flourishes, welded them together and wha-lah! You can snag your freebie down blow. I also created the scalloped border you see at the right of the layout. You can download it here. Rock Star Title SVG
I wanted the title to look like a chandellier, so I used a bunch of gems to create this effect.

Font: Rage Italic Journal Frame $1.00

Guitar Stamp $1.00

This is a first for me. I created my own "bling flourish" by using glossy black dimensional paint. I printed out the image on white paper, then I used some clear plastic (left over from some sticker packaging) to create this. You can see the tutorial here. In this photo you can see the plastic, but when I put it in a scrapbook protective cover, you won't be able to tell! BTW, I did this one yesterday and let it dry overnight. So if you just want to play around with the idea, you could make a few and then put them aside for later. That way when you go to create a LO, they are already dry!
Ok...and don't forget to check out Lindsay's blog for her Halloween digi stamp freebie and to see what the other DT members have created! You won't be disappointed!
Freebie Thursday!
