In my house seeing a man in the kitchen is a rare sight. Okay actually seeing a man in the house is a rare sight...but the kitchen is even more rare! I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures of my daughters father cooking supper for us.
This one is a super simple layout but I was able to use From My Kitchen, which I love but rarely seem to use. I also used Don Juan and Indie Art.
After putting the layout together I wish I would have shadowed with either white or light grey for the title. But oh well, what's done is done. I am sure my daughter will just appreciate having some pictures of her father one day and not be worried if mom shadowed the title correctly! But then again with her being MY daughter, she likely will say to herself "I wonder why mom didn't use white or light gray to shadow the words".
I wanted to show a close up of the oven mitt to show you how you can add a little doodling to a cut and make it look so much better! I simply inked the edges, then using a quilting ruler I made faux stitching going on diagonal one way and then the other giving the mitt a quilted look.
You can see where I added faux stitching to other areas as well. The photo corners were done with a Martha Stewart photo corner punch.
I used some metallic paper for the pot so it would have a more realistic look than just using gray paper. I added a little detail with a black marker and white gel pen.
If you do any cooking layouts or recipe books and don't have From my Kitchen, well....ya need to get it! There are some really great cuts on this cart. I think you can probably get it on eBay pretty cheap these days also.
Tomorrow will be my last layout from the Swarm and will be the two page layout I did.
