These are the Days



My daughter Natalie took this photo of my little man having a cuddle with mummy (and trying to grab my i-phone). I used this cool sketch from Scrap 365's April challenge to make my page.
I created the background effect by spraying two colours of ink onto a plastic supermarket bag. I scrunched up the bag a little to spread and blend the inks then laid my white cardstock directly down on top of the bag and pressed it down using a rolling pin. The result is this patchy, water-colour effect. I added some grey stars by spraying through a mask and, ofcourse, some randon ink splats
Last week our local Spotlight  had a special on Heidi Swapp's File Folders. I bought a pack and am having a lot of fun cutting them up and using them on my pages in place of patterned paper. Both the navy polka-dot and the old script papers are cut up file folders.
I used a 2Crafty phrase for my title and I heat embossed it with bright blue embossing powder.


I added a few sequines and enamel dots to my background along with those cool Heidi Swapp transparent stars. Here is a close up of my journaling so that it is easier to read.



Have a great week and thanks for visiting my blog today :)
