The April 15th challenge for About A Boy was to use your boys artwork on a scrapbook page. Michael had recently brought some Johnny Appleseed projects home so it was the perfect time for me to try this.
I usually make scrapbook pages using a variety of techniques, but I decided to approach this one differently. Since it was his artwork I wanted it to look like he has created the page as well. I reached WAAAYYY back in my childhood and created the page like I would have when I was in elementary school. I don’t think you can tell from the picture, but it even has the owl hole in the tree that I think we all drew when we were younger.
I wouldn’t have had fancy embellishments as a youngster so I used my cricut to cut basic shapes. It ended up turning out just like I wanted it too.
