Anyway, because it was my Birthday I allowed myself to eat sweets all day ( liquorice allsorts and chocolate mints!! ) and do not very much more than scrapbook!! Well, I had to try my new stuff. So I decided to use a sketch I had seen in French magazine a while ago, that used paint and masking tape. Masking tape is quite big in France, I love it but it is quite expensive. I also decided to use a photo of Andrew I had secretly kept of a day he had to go to some offices in London and had to have his picture taken to be allowed in the building. I like the picture but I know he doesn't!! It was perfect for the new challenge at Scrap Fit :
Workout #44 - Stand By Your Man
We all have at least one man in our lives that we love! So lets dedicate this challenge to him! Don’t be afraid to think out side box with this. I am sure your husband/boyfriend , father and son quickly come to mind but maybe there is another man who is dear to you like Tim Holtz or Brad Pit??? Have fun with this but be sure to make this a ‘mans’ layout so give it a manly/rough/rugged look and feel.
I decided to make it messy purposely as Andrew is quite .. ( very..) messy ! I was brave and used paint and gesso and all the things that normally scare me but I like the result. I loved using the making tape and I could easily get addicted ! So here is my page...
And since I was wearing my apron and I had already repainted half of the kitchen with my attempts to make splashes of colours, I decided to enter the new challenge at These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things. Here is the brief this month..
So EXCITED about today's prompt! These are a Few of My Favorite Photos!!! What is your FAVE photo?? Can you choose just one? Or do you have a few that you just want to share?? Whatever your FAVE photo, we want to see it! :):):):):):):):):):)
It is difficult to choose just the one picture but I love this picture of the four of us in France. The setting was wonderful and peaceful and it was our anniversary so it is very special. I used the same idea as the first sketch but used my new stamps a bit more. I really, really love them. You will see them lots, they are so versatile. So here is my lay out:
Well, enough talking for today, I have TK Maxx voucher to spend !
Have a lovely day!
