Hi, Its been busy this weekend, I managed to get two pages completely done as well as a full spring clean of our house. This page is for the Once Upon a ...Sketch challenge "The men in our lives" (http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com.au/).
I chose this older pic of my husband and daughter having a nice time together at the beach, as he is the best man in her life. I don't usually put journaling on my pages and I know why as I put a spelling mistake on this page, but otherwise I'm really happy with how I turned out.
I chose blue and red colours to go with the colours in the photo, and to add those colours I used gelatos and Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays
I found these sea shells at a budget store the other day, they go so well on a beach page
I coloured the chipboard word with gelatos, Acqua Dolce and Boysenberry to give it that two toned effect.
As always I used modelling paste and stencils to give the background texture, as well as some random stamping.
