Paper House: Superhero Wall Hanging

The Project
I'm really excited to share with you my first project as a designer with Paper House Productions! I made a framed wall hanging for my nephew, documenting his latest interest - reenacting the exploits of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The Collection
When I looked through Paper House's extensive collection of scrapbooking sets, the one that really jumped out at me was the Birthday Boy collection

Even thought it was birthday themed, I really like the super hero aspect of it, which really matched my photos. 

The Details
I took two stickers, "birthday boy" and "birthday Hero," cut out the birthday portion, and reassembled them together to form my title, "boy Hero." Around the title, I added a few more stickers like the blue 3-D mask which matched my photo perfectly. I then added some goggly eyes on top of the sticker and some sequins and wood veneer stars for some finishing touches. 

For my layout design, I used the following sketch that I created. 

Since this was a gift, I framed my layout which turned it into a wall hanging. A layout tells more of a story and is more dynamic than giving just a framed photo. If you would like an instruction sheet with the sketch, here is a downloadable PFD.
