Enjoy Every Minute of Every Day
This is my DT page for the new reveal at Another freaking Scrappy Challenge. I think that this is one of my all time favourite pages - mainly because I am in love with that photo! It is another shot from the girls big Easter Sunday rainstorm frolic and I pressed the shutter at just the right moment to capture the huge splashes from Natalie's gumboot completely covering Sophie. Natalie loves this photo so much that it is now her profile photo on all her social networking media lol.
I used the negative from some cloud chipboard shapes as a mask to make the sky. There is an awesome article in one of the recent 'Australian Scrapbook Ideas' by Tracey Campbell demonstrating other examples of this technique. My papers needed to be really 'fun' to set off this photo and what screams fun more than Amy Tan??? The page is based on this sketch which is the current AFSC challenge (very loosely as you can see).
I used string to make the circle elements across the bottom of the page and I moved the photo down to make room for the details in the sky.
Here are a few close-ups:
Hope you have time to try out this one :)))
