Thread: Unconventional Toot

  1. Unconventional Toot

    What's the largest canvas size you've ever scrapped? I can now say that mine is a canvas size of 24 FEET by 7 FEET!

    I was asked to create a billboard for the Christian School my children attend. I was given an afternoon to get it done for the school board's approval. This was during summer break, so I had limited access to school photos. Well, guess who ended up on the billboard? My dd and two ds's.

    It was a fascinating experience, to say the least. Anyway, below is the finished product, modified to eliminate specific location information.

    Amazing!!!!!!!!!!How precious are all of their little faces. Perfect little faces for a billboard and the slogan. You're so talented.

    Fantastic job! What a great billboard! Your children look so happy! I would be so glad if my children could attend a school like this.

  21. I do believe that "unconventional" is an "understatement" for this TOOT!

    This is just awesome, Tracy. And, your children are so happy, and handsome, and ... well . . . just heavenly!

    I do think that you need to take a photo of the three of them looking at the billboard ... and scrap it.

    that is VERY cool. And I have created nothing NEARLY that large, lol! I agree with the pp that you should take a pic of the kids below the billboard!
