Joe Just Can't Get Enough - Scrapfriends Dec Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone

I hope that you had a super weekend and that Monday has been gentle on you! ;-)

I have a page to share for the sketch up at ScrapFriends here. This is the sketch.

Here is my take on it.

I mirrored the sketch and really kept quite close to the sketch, as I really loved this design.

I used gesso and the corrugated board to add texture, and then used washi tapes as well.

I used the Collecting Moments from Fancy Pants Designs. The washi tapes are MME and 7 Gypsies.
My title I stamped with BoBunny alpha stamps.

Joe loves the sea and once he is in, it is an absolute mission to get him out! He can be going blue with cold, but swim he will swim! He just loves every moment and it's just never the reason for my title! ;-)

These colours worked really well for a sea scape and I was pleased with the end result.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super day!

  5. Little boys and water have a natural affinity...I had to smile at him turning blue and still not wanting to get out...brings back memories of our own boys when they were little. Your take on the sketch is fabulous...I love the use of corrugated board and the washi....Magical :)
