My son started playing in the band this year. It’s a fight to get him to practice piano, but he loves trombone music time!
- Design Inspiration: In Cari Orellana’s class Bold Backgrounds at Big Picture Classes we were challenged to use patterned backgrounds. I loved getting to use papers that have been sitting in my stash for years!
- Color Inspiration: I was looking through my stash for bold pattern papers and came across this red, white and blue piece. It seemed perfect for documenting my son’s love of trombone music.
To give the layout a bit more of a musical flair I added some sheet music washi tape. This addition made my background even more bold, and I loved that!
I didn’t have enough lower case letters so I used a mix of upper and lower case to create the title. I also used a stack of paper scraps to back the photo. With so much color on the background, I felt like a black and white photo would work the best. Plus once it’s black and white you don’t notice as much of the mess in the background and you can focus more on my son and his trombone.
Who knows how long the trombone phase will last, so I’m glad I got it documented while I can!
