Three Santas

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Well, I'm a little out of season, but that's how I scrap.  I do work chronologically. Well, I print my photos that way and then grab photos from within that time period as I feel like scrapping them.  So, I am currently in 2007 photos.  I've always loved this photo, even though it is really poor quality.  When it's the only one you got, you make it work (thanks Tim Gunn).

This week's challenge over at About a Boy is to use your scraps on a page about that boy in your life.  Lucky me, I got to scrap all three of them at one time.  I even got to use a sketch from another blog I've been stalking for a while Let's Get Sketchy.  I used the week one sketch with the bonus color challenge.

I challenged myself. We don't take a lot of Christmas photos, so this color combo is really a stretch for me.  I went to my scraps bin and pulled out some goldish yellow, olive green and red scraps.  I used a new stencil and misted in green and white.  I've had these buttons for years, so I was very happy to finally use them.  I also had a few gold sticker gems left, so I polished those off as well.  Lastly, I added a little washi above and below the photo to ground it.  I though it was getting lost into the PP.  

I looked at them and thought "three amigos", but changed it to 'santas' instead.  Using scraps made this page some together very quickly.  Hope you will join us at About a Boy this week
