#14 Working Out

My two favorite subjects helped me with this layout. I enlisted Nick and Jeff to be my subjects for a series of images. I snapped photos of a typical workout. The photos demonstrating stretching showcase the theme best, but the ab crunches also show the exercise in progress.They are very athletic. Jeff has done mini triathlons and Nick is in the National Guard and PT is part of his day routine. 

I took so many pictures that I wound up making a two-page layout.

The elements used were:

Granite Mosaic Moments Grid paper

Midnight Blue card stock

Clip art

Powder Puff inks


I did not follow any page patterns from MM for this layout.

For the stretching page, I printed clip art for my center banner printed in black and white. The clip art was in color and there were too many variations of colors like neon pink, yellow and red. I think the B&W worked best.

I also journaled "Stretching before working out".

The second page is jumping rope, push ups and running; a series of exercises. In the top left corner on the page below Nick is jumping rope. He was jumping so fast, I had to take about 15 photos before I got one showing the rope and you barely see it. In the top right photo, Jeff is in mid air and the rope is under him. Every time I look at this photo, it looks like someone drew an oval around him and then I realize its the rope.

For the journaling squares, I inked white card stock, hand wrote the words and applied brads to the corners.

Wonderful. My first thought was "I wonder if the people across the street were watching . . ." or maybe it was a bit early for that. I like everything about this -- the color the photos selection, and thee art. Now if only I could be motivated to get back on my exercise bandwagon . . . I wonder where my Leslie Sanson tapes are. . .

Nice job and great that they were such willing subjects! Makes me tired just looking at them! LOL! Very fit young men! The colors are wonderful, too! And, I really like the clip art that you chose...really great idea for the banner! :)

Whew - I'm tired just looking at all that work. I think I'm with Andrea I would have only made it through the stretching! You did a great job of capturing the different aspects of their workout!

Dale, great idea! Nice that you have 2 young men who are willing subjects - can't say I know any who would let me photo this. Like the 2 pages with the warm up and work out, great colors and story. Like your list of supplies. I was exhausted just watching them workout - LOL:)

Dale! Very nice workout-I mean layout!!! lol. I really love the action photos. Nothing like taking photos of stuff in action. As I was looking at the photos-it was almost like I was doing the exercises with them!!! They really show movement. Very nicely done.

Wow! Great job, Dale!! What strapping young men you had for subjects!! They make it look so easy! The first thing I noticed about this layout is the colors...fabulous! I love the granite with the navy, the clipart in b/w and the page pattern!! Great series!

I think this is the first "exercise" scrapbook page I've seen! Great series of photos. Having two subjects made the photos more interesting (than one person exercising would have been) - love the shot where they are doing the leg lifts.

Well Dale, for me that whole stretching thing...IS my work out! not like the old days at all!! Anyway, this is a great topic from which to make a series. The stop action quality of the mid-air jumping is great! Your Grid and tile colors work well with your photos and the double mirror image layout feels very balanced with some photos matted while others are not. Love the brads on the journal blocks too. Oh, and let's not forget the willing subjects, well done guys!!
