This weeks theme over on the Tando blog is spots and dots, so inspired by this and the doodling challenge at the ATDML retreat this weekend here is my take on it!

I hand cut the dots - planned out a grid on the back and all that...then to cover my wonky cutting I doodled around the edges, and then backed with different papers.  The dotty blue and pink paper is the Tando sequin waste mask that I just rubbed chalk inks through, I also made a little camera shaker and added stickers and chipboard to some of the circles too.  I then layered up my papers and photos and used a little Tando chipboard camera which I coloured in in pencil as the other cameras were grey.  The papers are all Websters Pages, mostly Compostition and Colour but the Chevron is from the Party Time range too.

The photos are of my youngest trying out our camera on the beach, I do still find pictures on my phone when it's been hijacked by him, and it makes me smile...have to make a page about it!

    p.s. after out 'messy' class last weekend, I am off to town to buy some Gesso today, yay, a convert!

  4. LOVE this page - and so relieved to find that it wasn't made with a fancy cutting machine - so it's pinned for a go at scraplifting sometime. TFS.
    Great doodling, clever layering - love it all!

  5. Loving this!! The background with the cutout circles is awesome!!

  6. Fabulous LO. The circles with the doodling really create depth to the background.

  7. I really like this layout as there is lots of white space and yet there is lots of patterned paper to see as well! Love it!

  8. Really like this layout, with its simple overall style but with loads of interest. Very eye catching, bright and cheerful xx

  9. Oh I meant to put a little UK after my comment! Off to have a hop now.....

  10. I LOVE that layout- little works of art within the circles. How are you getting on with your jellyplate?

  11. This looks gorgeous, I love the doodles around the edges of the circles! Pinned it! x
