Laura Rumble – Bobby Knows All The Names

I’m so excited that Pretty My Page has some COAPA Cut Files for sale!  I’m a big fan of Virginia’s designs – especially those that are more masculine as they work great with photos of my nephews.  This train is AWESOME!

My nephew knew all of the Thomas engines names and was so familiar with the books that you couldn’t say a single word wrong when reading to him as he’d stop you and start again!  If we weren’t playing with trains we were reading about them.  I put so much effort in to learning their names but there were so many.  The look of disappointment on a two year olds face when you call Edward Gordon is a look that stays with you for a long time.

Right less waffle and on to the layout.  I’ve backed the train with various papers from a Doodlebug 6×6 pad.  I choose yellows and oranges for the engine as blue and yellow were the two colours that stood out the most from the photos.  Orange is blue’s complimentary colour.

I added a little blue ink to the white background using the packaging technique.  I choose three bold alphas for my title and subtitle.  Despite what the photo tells you, that middle line of alphas is straight.  I triple checked after looking at the photos!
