Nobody needs to be traumatized by horrible photos, right?



Kungfu?

So nephew #2 doesn't have many scrapbook layouts. He's camera-shy and when he does cooperate, he kind of looks "bleh"...*LOL* Now I'm all for scrapbooking about real life...but nobody needs to be traumatized by horrible photos right? 


This layout started with leftover paint from a previous canvas project....all I did was to brush on the paint [fuchsia and white], then while it was still wet, pressed some bubblewrap over for a fun texture. The chipboard letters were initially white...I coloured them with an orange Sharpie to help pull all the colours together.

Playing along with the chipboard challenge at Frosted Designs.

Supplies: Basic Grey patterned papers, Heidi Swapp chipboard, Shapie, Fontwerks stamps, buttons, trim. clothes tag, twine, staple, ice-cream stick, ribbon.


P/s: Come play along with my guest Hussena's challenge. It ends on Friday! :)

I am consistently impressed by how you take things that don't go together at all and make them look like they were meant to be together all along! A dog, bird, flowers, bookmark, and kung fu should not go together, yet yours not only works, it's totally awesome.

Love the photo series & the fussy cutting around them! I know what you mean - my youngest son is so unphotogenic - I've been thinking of scrapping some of those terrible photos and just calling it "unphotogenic!" LOL!
