The Weir Wolf Wins Again

Back to the Paralympics and I used Sketch 9 from Shimelle's Sketch to Scrapbook Page video series for David Weir in the men's wheelchair marathon, winning his fourth gold medal of the Games. I liked that the sketch focused on one large square of patterned paper as it gave me the chance to use one of the Union flag papers in the Portobello Road collection that I have been using throughout my album. 

I used a transparency down the middle of the page rather than more patterned paper so that you can still see the flag. I'm nearly at the end of the album, and I haven't used the transparency before, but I have used red spotty paper so I don't think it will look out of place. If it does, I can go back and add smaller pieces to earlier pages. I plan to go through the whole album anyway and add bits to any pages that seem 'lacking' in some way. There is also a page that I want to re-do as it jars with me every time I flip through the pages that I have done so far.

Cardstock - Papermania Kraft Basics, American Crafts (black)
Paper - Papermania Portobello Road
Transparency - Fancy Pants Wave Searcher
Letters - MME Lush (plus old unlabelled ones)
Ink - Ink It Up!


  1. The transparency is a really nice touch. Great job.

  2. I've enjoyed flicking back through your blog at the pages you have done for this album. We went to London between the Olympics and Paralympics and I am working through a similar album using craft and Portobello Road papers (amongst others). Thank-you for some new ideas.
