This is an older shot of my eldest son, and I still love it - he is asleep on my shoulder. The photo was quite orangey so I decided to print it in black and white.
For the page I used Websters Pages In Love range. I started by drawing 3 circles in the corner of my page in pencil (I used the inside of a roll of masking tape...yes a compass would have been easier). I then stitched around the circles 3 times and rubbed out the lines. I punched some circles and then folded in each side - the easiest way to do this is to make a little square template to use on each one and then fold. I will try and put together a little tutorial on this as it is really easy. I put the folded circles in lines on the right hand side of the page and then used the punch circle waste behind my photo. I also created a little folded flower from a strip of paper and doily edge punch (yep another on my list of tutorials to do - it is so quick and easy too), and made some leaves cutting out the shape with pinking shears and embossing some veins on them, then rubbing over distress ink. I cut out some hearts added lots of stitching and then finished it off with the title and some flicks of white acrylic.
This is the last page I did for the A Trip Down Memory Lane gallery, though there is a card too.
Saving the exciting news til last; I am absolutely delighted to have been invited to join the Tando Design Team.
If you haven't heard of Tando they are a British company that creates beautiful chipboard pieces from 3D objects to pieces for cards and pages, as well as a lovely range of masks. I'll be back at the end of the month with a page I have just created, here is a link to the blog so you can meet all the other new members of the team and see all the inspiration and you can win some goodies too to celebrate.
