I chose LIST1-Air Balloons, LIST2-Buttons & Black, LIST3-Crate paper.
I love this picture of my daughter. Sometimes I'm surprised at the expressions she makes. Most of the time she's laughing her head off, but there are times like this (rare though!).
I started by using several types of ink for the background. It was supposed to be brighter at first, but I think it turned out better this way and matches the atmosphere of the picture. Layering is always my favorite although this time it was hard to make all the papers match. I matted the picture with a black stripe paper to make it stand out. I also used black ink to stamp some script. Black always adds spice!! The air balloons (I hope you can tell they are air balloons!) are handmade. I punched out 3 circles and folded them into half and glued them together. Love how it adds dimention! Here are some close-ups;
The challenge is open until September 29th. I love looking at other peoples layouts and I get a lot of inspiration. I hope mine will inspire you in some way too;)
Thank you for visiting!
