He's a Charmer


When I saw the new word up at 'Bird is the Word' was 'Charm' it reminded me of this group of photos that I took recently. Little Benji had been told that he couldn't watch any more TV and he needed to go to play with his toys. For a little while all was quiet - too quiet. When I found him he was lying under the coffee table playing 'Angry Birds' on my i-phone (which he had taken from my handbag).
I snapped some photos and thought what a little charmer he was and how he could wrap us all around his little finger! When I came to scrap them I couldn't choose my favourite so I decided that I would have to scrap them all in a grid pattern. The papers I have used are OA 'Farmhouse'. I cut up a MME dimensional sticker for my flower stem and handmade the flower head. Initially I planned to journal directly onto my ledger paper background but I didn't like the way that the writing was not straight because I had placed the paper on an angle. So I painted over the lines where I planned to journal with a white paint dauber and then handwrote my story in straight lines.
