It's been a little while since my last post. I'm not making any apologies - I had a huge birthday bash on the weekend which took a lot of organising and a lot of recovering from!!!
This is the first layout I've ever submitted to Scrap Friends. You can find their website here. Here is the sketch:
And here's my take on it:
I decided to flip the layout vertically so my nephew's eyes are looking towards the centre of the page. As much as I love the film strips in the original sketch, I don't have any so I just went with what seemed to work.
I adore this photo of my nephew. He looks like a cute little ET wrapped up in his beach hoodie!
I challenged myself to use flowers on a masculine layout. All these Manor House Creations flowers were originally white. You can find their blog here. I sprayed the flowers with Dylusions Ink Spray then gave the background plus the flowers a light spray with Perfect Pearls Mist to give a more grainy, sandy effect. I added the bare chipboard and raw edged hessian to make the layout more boyish.
Hope you like it!
