White space and doodling








I had run out of photos to scrap and was browsing through a pile on the side when I came accross this one, it being smaller than I usually scrap with I decided to have a go at doing a white space page!


For some reason the Lo instantly popped into my head and I started straight away by making my own photo mount and matted it. Then the next day when Ben was asleep i carefully stamped the words with Making Memories foam stamps and pigment ink, I normally use paint but didn't have any red in the house!! WARNING although the ink dries it does smudge at the slightest hint of moisture!! I happened to lean my left hand on it and the sweat has caused marks, but I wasn't going to start again!

The black and white border is made by using a marker pen and putting stipes along the edge of a peice of 12x12 and then cutting random widths from the sheet. I then simply cut an inch off the white paper and mounted it on black so the stripes would show up!


The doodling was helped by using a stencil that came from scrapbook inspirations but I wanted some smaller flower heads so i drew onw then cut it out smaller and traced around the edge, the dots were addittional to create movement and I just liked the Basic Grey Rub-On.

Georgia and Milly are cousins and I have always noticed how they both have the same cheeks. This photo was taken especially to capture their likeness so I am pleased I have scrapped it so soon after taking it.

Lovely photo and great page, lets the picture speak for itself. Great doodles too.

Re the smudgy paint, might be worth puttin a light coat of PVA over it but you'll need to be careful not to go over the lines and make it bleed but it would seal it.
