Scrap the Boys February Challenge page

Hi again!
 
Just popping in to share my entry for this month's Scrap The Boys challenge.  The challenge is to scrap a pic of your boy with someone special in their life.  Well, naturally, I chose a pic of my boy and I... cos let's face it, mums are pretty spesh to kids.  I've been raising the kids solo since my boy was 5, so we have a pretty special relationship.

 And here are a few close ups.  I used gelatos to colour the flourishes, which were raw, and had some left on my fingers, so then I grabbed the gauze and used it to 'clean' my fingers, which gave the gauze a nice colour to match the layout :)

 I used my paper piercer tool to wind the stems of the flowers around to create tendrils.
 I'm loving this metallic thread I found.  It really just finishes off a cluster of embellies, I think.
 
So there you have it. I had a lot of fun creating this layout. :)


Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo
