Yuhuuuuu...how do you do? I hope you all have fantastic week :)
We get 3 days of holiday here because the Hindu are celebrating their New Year's Day in silence. So, my scrapping weekend starts a bit early this time and last night I've finish one layout already. Yey, thank God I got my papers through online shopping so I won't cry in disappointment no more. I'm soooooo excited.
What to scrap? I have lots of good picture to scrap but those old photo always get special attention from me :). Yes, those pictures that mommy sent me few weeks ago. Most of them are my self portrait. Back in my childhood ofcourse :) Then I pick two photos, both taken on '83. Wow, I was only 2 years old that time!!! I'm begging to all parents in the world, please please take lots of pictures of your children, it is very precious :)
So here's my layout
See, that's me starring in wonder and another picture capture my personality as daddy girl..LOL. I'm really excited to make this LO. I love the tones of picture, really love the beautiful papers (I use Bo Bunny Ambrosia paper series), I can incorporate lots of embellishments, and I love love love this sketch from Let's get sketchy challenge#3
This sketch give me endless possibilities. At first I'm working with the circle shape. I decide not to use paper to create the circle. I'm using my swirly stamp on circular line. Here's the close ups:
Then I work the rectangle shape which is putting my picture.
After that, I work the embellishment on right bottom just like the sketch. I choose to put another picture. Yes my-dad-and-me picture. I create a big hole on paper then glue my photo behind it.
Next phase is make a lining embellishment on bottom left. It's time for my lace ribbon to take an act :) Three layers of lace ribbon to add my page's textures
To sweeten the composition, I also add the lace on top of the picture.
I put a beautiful street lamp chipboard. Un-painted, un-glittered, un-perfect pearled...just plain chipboard. Hey, notice that I seems like staring at the lamp in wonder?
Lately I use banners often. They're soooo flexible. Can be put on any layouts and very very cute. So I'm so happy this sketch include banner :) For this LO, beside put them on bottom page, I also use them as my journaling.
Wonder, play, explore, laugh, learn. The joy of childhood :)
See you on my next page. Happy lovely weekend everyone :)
