Design Team Scrap Our Stash September Grid Challenge.

She said 'Grid' I thought... hmm...
Been wanting to do a Brady Bunch style page about us being a mixed family for awhile now...
Here's your chance, Go for it!
...So I did. 

The 'base' is a flipped over piece of really, really ugly (The Stack #1 for the long time scrappers,) piece of pattern paper. I needed something thin because it was going to get layered and I was never, ever going to use that pattern paper where it would show.
The pictures were a hoot to do... hung a sheet on a door, had everyone don black T-Shirts, stand in front and make some faces! I took pictures of everyone looking up, down, forward and to the sides... I didn't know who was going where. *BONUS* I now have a file full of these pictures for many future projects and I only had to hold everyone hostage with the camera this once! lol
I downloaded the Brady Bunch Font free online and used it for all the title/journaling. Printed with a shadow then inked over in teal and yellow Stampin'Up! ink spots. I drew the grid on the paper in pencil before I started so it was easier to position all the bits. Then laid 1/2" strips of black card-stock down only after everything else was just right. Last touch was stamping the 7 gypsies 'Together' stamp in the top left square.
No fancy embellishments needed, the Grid itself made the design!
Now it's your turn to take the September Grid Challenge. Take the challenge and you could be chosen for our November Guest Design Team. See all the details HERE!
