Scrapping Outback August challenge
This month at Scrapping Outback, the challenge is to be inspired by this image:
I was instantly drawn to the colours in this image, so vibrant, just lovely. I wish I had a cocktail photo that would have suited, lol. I didn't so, I settled for this photo of my adorable nephew Ethan.
I stencilled with a Heidi Swapp template, which originally was done with yellow, but didn't work for the challenge that I created that for, so waste not want not, I went back over it with the blue, so a little bit of the yellow is peeping through. I stamped and dripped paint onto the background, then stitched the project life cards onto it, over the top of some cotton thread.
The chipboard piece was a piece I had from A2Z scraplets. It originally had the word BOY in the centre of the circle, but I didn't particularly like that, so cut that out, tucked the circle under the photo and then layed the word over the top. I coloured the chipboard with Zig wink of Stella brush, and highlighted the printed words on the circle in black. Ive embellished simply with a Charms Creations heart, a wooden bead and a button flair.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
