King of Traveland lo-'CCW July Challenge - Holidays!

 This page was published in Oct/Nov 2010 issue of SNR magazine
This page made TOP3 on Sketches in time sketch challenge- thanks!!
CCW have this great prize this week- so holidays it is- an from here to all other challenges..
For mostly one photo scrapper the sketch I decided to do from Sketches in time was a real challenge as I used 4 photos of my second son Amir from his long- long trips all around the world
The title is my own - I never met this Traveland anywhere- maybe there is one in some kids book but English is my third language so I think I was inventive for Hebrew and Russian speaker.
I used 3 Prima pp- some were hand cut, some used as a long strip and some circle cut.
The title was from AC thickers- I was so glad I could use only one font here as the set wasn't a new one.
The embellishment were pure masculine: Tim Holtz chipboard die cut for some kind of journaling, Tim's metals with brads, some altered green brad- the face is rub on, I also used some butterfly rub on on the photo and some for journaling on chipboard and some for the tickets I die cut with Tim's die and stamped with Inkadinkado ticket stamps. I added the lion head for a " king" and a playing king card - dooble king he is..
I also did some distressing with a tool and inks and I had to stop as the so called " white space" was empty and these clouds- birds- pinweels- butterflies could be there, but no....
This was too- too much and I dropped the idea after I actually did 2-3 die cuts of each of them .
I also used some border punch for a piece of matting around the biggest photo- for highlight mostly and matted the focal photo with yellow cardstock matting too.
So no flowers and no ribbons and no lace and swirls and no feminine pieces- was hard!!
But the result is something I like- focusing in photos and the title and very magestic nd summery and even a bit shabby as much as not girly page can be.
