I did this sweet layout of my grandson Colby.  He is such a delight and always so curious about things.  This challenge at Scrap Africa was perfect for this photo!

Scrap Africa

You can create a card, tag, layout, an altered project, journal pages or even a digital project!
You can create whatever you like! ;-)

We would just love to know what inspired you from the sketch and the sentiment behind your project!;-)

Here is my layout!

I just loved working on this.  I used so many techniques and the color blue and yellow was perfect.

Please see the close-ups!

You can see the beads and other objects that I used plus string, embossing, and die cuts.

I used water color around the photo plus a stencil.  On the frame I used paste to give it a rusty look.  

I wanted circles around the photo using blue and yellow.  I really love this.

Thank you for looking and please have a great day!

  1. Adorable Ginger! i love the beads as they perfectly create the image of water bubbles in a pool. The way you used a small portion of yellow makes the photo pop!! Great solving!

  2. What a sweet child, and creative mixed media layout! I love how you combined frames in different shapes and colors, both the bright yellow and blue, and the rusty one. And the beads and all. Thank you for joining us at Scrap Africa!
