Here is my page from my Trends on Tuesday post over at A Trip Down Memory Lane. I had a go at using negatives, and the lovely Crate Paper Random collection with a little Farmhouse thrown in. The picture is of my son just sat on the edge watching some roller skating in a school hall, and I caught his attention to get the photo.
I started the page with some more scrapes of gesso (I now have an old credit card style card to do the scraping rather than the cardboard). I also added some watered down flicks in either corner. I cut a yellow strip of the Farmhouse paper and die cut 4 stars which I then stitched together to make a little banner under the photo. I stitched all my pieces of paper with black cotton this time so it stood out, and inked the edges. I added a few more stars and used my favourite abstract flower punch by ek success. The title fits with my son, as he is definitely a boys boy, though in his own words he does play with tom boys too.
Here is the link to the post as it gives some more examples of negative space I found on my blog hopping.
