The Big Show, another part!

The Big Show and if I am correct this will be the third Big Show LO I have made, and there is another one coming since I keep running into this guy. Not that you can miss him because the man is huge! He might be the biggest person we have met but he is also one of the nicest and always takes time for us, and people in general, even thou he might be in a hurry. And considering the amount of people that walk up to him he probably has as much patience as size!

This one is a "rip off" since the bear that I have cut out is one og Big Shows logos. I simply looked at it, drew it, altered it a bit to make it fit in my LO, and then cut out templates. It´s most probably Basic Grey again and the colours are chosen to match Big Shows clothes. The letters also have a coat of Glossy Accents and some parts of my paper piecing, which I guess is the right term for this, are mounted on 3D cushions. The eyes are made of regular paper, Stickles Gun Metal and Glossy Accents to get that nice shine and lift. I quite enjoy paper piecing, it might be a bit tricky sometimes but the final result usually comes out nice.

Keeping an eye on you!
Glossy Accents, a fantastic invention!

William Regal, part 2

Yet another LO with the english wrestler William Regal and if I may say it myself, and of course I will, I have progressed a bit since Regal was on my paper the last time. Same theme, the Union Jack, but this time I cut it a bit irregular to get that feeling of the flag flying around in the wind. The four red stripes on the sides are mounted on 3D-cushions to give them that extra wave! I guess I used Basic Grey for this as well, but not sure, and the letters are from the Quickutz alphabet Washington and I have a coat of Glossy Accents on them. Quite happy with this one, but then again, it´s hard to fail using a flag as a theme.

Thumbs up for this one and thumbs up for William Regal, a very pleasent man who always takes time for a quick chat and a photo or two with his game face on.
A close up just for the sake of having one=)

Primo Colón

It´s time, it´s Scissorhands time, and it´s about time! One could say that I have been sort of busy, or rather really really busy the last two years so my scrapbooking production has been, well, it´s exaggerating calling it production since my visits to the scrapbooking room have been scarce. A few LO´s have been made so here they are, without vivid explanations about techniques and choices of paper since I just cant recall what I have done and what I have used. One thing is sure thou, scissors have been used and most of the papers are probably Basic Grey. So here I am again with the "missing" LO´s and I can also gladly announce that I have started up again.

This one is of the wrestler Primo Colón, the brother of Carlito (who I will be making at least one LO of since we met him as well) and my son. Primo originates from Puerto Rico and that´s where I found my inspiration, stars and stripes but still not the USA. I liked the papers, nice colours that reminds one about old painted wood, a bit rugged from the wind and water that most certainly comes from living on an island! Oh well, I am making it up as I go along, it will get better in future LO´s!

The actual LO with the son and Primo

The stars have been mounted on black 3D-cushions (as well as the letters PRIMO) and then I also cut out shades. Letters are handcut, stars cut with a Cuttlebug.
