I have to say that Botany was never this much fun for me when I took the class. My son gets to keep an art journal and is encouraged to sketch throughout the on-line webinar he takes each week. I captured photos of him during his first day of class.

There are two things that I especially love about this layout.The first is that I stained wood letters with yellow mist and then stamped on them to create the title.I got the idea from a get it scrapped article. The second thing I love is how I created the leaves to adorn my page.I colored scrap cardstock with Distress ink, then drew them and cut them out by hand.

This marks the final post in our back to school feature over at the Scrapbook News and review blog. It's based on today's color palette of the week. I hope you will stop over to see the other projects shared by the creative team.

  1. Love this one Christy! The technique on your title is really awesome and I love the little touches of pink you used on a boy layout!
