The Story of the The Background...
... this particular background paper was just too strong for the photos.
But I was DETERMINED to use it. It came in my Kitaholics kit.
['scuse the mobile phone photo....]
Whether I like the kit or not, my aim is to 'kill' it. This
way I don't feel guilty about getting the next month's!
So, what to do. I thought of gesso. But I wanted to
keep the 'crisp' look.
So, this is what I did:
Used a copic marker. Took an age. Was worth every minute!!
This is the finished page:
I really love all the little embellies with the kit this month.
Once again, channeled a 'project life' style LO, in order to get
more than one photo scrapped. Especially since they were
all of the same event.
Love those little gold glittery hearts....I know I can make them,
but it was a treat to not do so!
Those big "XOs" are a fave, too. My blue eyed boys!!
The family really enjoyed the 'fake' snow. About as close to the real
thing we're ever likely to see here!
I actually made 3 pages today. I am loving scrapping soooo much atm!
I'll leave you with some photos of Grand Boy Ollie's little family 2nd birthday
party that we had on the weekend.
This is the t-shirt we bought him, Bahahaaaaaa!
My Mum - hoping her hip operation goes well tomorrow!
And the birthday boy, excited MUCH at blowing out his candles,
clapping himself cos we clapped him..... so we repeated it a few more
His Mum did such a FABULOUS job of the 'Thomas' train cake, too:)
Take care now & happy scrapping !!
