I didn't think I could accomplish the Get It Scrapped Design Team Assignment of Using Retro Branding without going digital but I did it! The 3 elements of retro branding are 1. limited and tonal color schemes; 2. simple shapes (like circles); and 3. retro typography.
I found a patterned paper with a retro looking font by Studio Calico and arranged it in the shape of a circle which reminded me of the Wheel of Fortune in the center of a bunch of very dark photos so it stood out and I added a Basic Grey chipboard dart board and the number 4 since we were at a Connect 4 Tournament.
And the story? We went to Geek Fest in Durango, Colorado and I brought my kids to a college bar and we were the oldest and the youngest people in the place - it may not have been the best Mommy move but we weren't there to party - we were there for the Connect Four Tournament!
