One thing I used to love doing was to join in scrapbooking challenges, something I have not done for a very long time. Last night My friend and I were checking something out on Facebook when a post on my news feed caught my eye… (click on the photo and it will take you to Sketchabilities blog)
I just loved the look of it and instead of doing what I had planned with some mouse traps (lol more on that later, and no we don’t have mice 🙂 I decided to give the sketch a go. After going through my papers which is a mission in its self I came back to doing what I love, creating with ink and making my own. I started off with making a background and then went from there. This is what I came up with.
I totally love the end result! it was so much fun and was great to get my fingers all inky again.
My back ground was made with a mixture of distress paints and inks.
I used small paper bags for my photo mats, and it also allowed me to creat some hidden journalling on tag, which I placed in one of the wee bags.
I just love this photo of my wee man, growing up so fast. Alex aged 5 at KFC Dunedin 🙂
