UFO #1: Tornado Alley


So in my quest to finish the unfinished, I am keeping it simple.  We are having an amazing, but busy summer, and I am trying to declutter and clean up my scrappy space by finishing some of these layouts that have been laying around for FAR too long…  so I just figured simplifying my already pretty straightforward style was probably a good idea.  Here’s the original UFO:

And the finished layout:

I found some simple clipart of a tornado online and traced it in my Silhouette Studio software to cut it out.  Then I misted it with some silver Mr. Huey to give it a litle distressed, grungy texture.  I chopped up an 8.5 x 5.5″ orange file folder to create a pocket for some hidden journaling (which discussed how T rode for 110 miles through three states, and how this ride will probably never happen again, as it was in July 2008, 3 years before the devastating tornado went through Joplin, where the ride was based.).  A little handstitching on the corners to bring a bit more blue and orange in, and…DONE.  Check one off the list!

  1. I love the simplicity! Not every layout had to be fully decked out with embellishments. Good luck completing all of your UFOs! That’s a great summer project. Done will feel good! :)
