22 Today


 
When I saw this sketch at 'Scrap Friends' I immediately loved it and thought that it would suit my style well :)  My eldest son recently turned 22 (Yikes!!!) and I have lots of photos of his special day. This was one of my favourites because it is such a natural pose. I decided to let it stand alone as the focus of this page.
I had a lot of fun spraying and masking my background. I bought the October Afternoon 'Woodland Walk' sprinkler inks from Scottie Crafts yesterday and I was itching to try them out. This page gave them a good work out and I was pleased by how beautifully the three colours in the pack blend together to make a multi-toned background. The papers that I used here are Echo Park's 'For the Record 2'. I layered and clustered many elements together - so fun to do! I added the title to the centre of my chipboard clock and hand journaled the details underneath my photo.
Hope you are all having a good week and looking forward to a great weekend. Here in NZ it is the lastday of the school holidays. My kids are a bit sad, but we have had a great two weeks and Sophie has crossed almost everything off her holiday 'to do' list!
