This afternoon I was in the mood to play around with inks, stamps, masks etc (you get the idea) Well I took this photo of my eldest son Chris and his lovely girlfriend libby yesterday as they were leaving to go to a friends 21st together. They have only been together for a few months but they really do seem to bring out the best in each other. When I saw the new word at 'Bird is the Word' is 'Sparkle' I thought that would be a fantastic title for the page. I distressed my background using several colours of mists and distress inks. I stamped the large doily shapes into opposite corners and used Kaisercraft rub-ons to add the smaller doilies. I layered a variety of paper scraps, tickets, flowers and wooden embelishments under my photo then made a twine circle to add more emphasis to the focus of my page. I balanced out the design by adding the title and other bits and pieces to the upper left corner of the page. I had a lot of fun with this and managed to use up a few odds and ends that had been sitting around cluttering up my table lol :) - I've already paid a visit to Scotty Craft this afternoon to repplenish my supplies.
