If you don't have comic book themed papers, you can easily make your own using your photos and a photo app. There are a variety of free or inexpensive apps available for your mobile devices or in the google play store. Here I used an app called Paper Camera to convert my photos into comic book style pictures. Post processing your photos is a wonderful way to add meaning to your layout while also creating a custom themed look. In fact, this is a topic I recently wrote about in more detail in my For the Boys class.
Whether or not you choose to use a comic book photo app, you can choose basic supplies from your stash. The comic book trend uses bold color with patterns such as dots and stripes. Red, yellow and black are common colors. I used washi tape with those colors and patterns to adhere a collage of comic book style photos to my layout.. It was then easy to add the additional colors of my son's favorite character to the palette. I used scraps of cardstock to create small journal blocks resembling those found in comic books.I did use some themed stickers but overall, I saved money by choosing supplies from my stash.
