Together!

When I saw that the new word at 'Bird is the Word' is 'together' I thought of this photo that I took of my son and his beautiful girlfriend on his 19th birthday this weekend. I wanted the photo to be the focus of the LO and I wanted it to have a soft feel. The scrapware frame was perfect for matting the photo and the blues, purples and yellows in my patterned paper set off the colours perfectly. I used a crafters workshop woodgrain mask to spray the background and machine stitched the random circles onto the page - they reminded me of knots in the wood of a tree. The blue papers and large cut-out roses are 'Glitz designs' vintage blue paper layers (paper layers are sold in a packs of 8 and several styles are currently available at Scotty Craft).
