Mum's smile - Scrap It With Attitude May Challenge.

My mum is the most loving caring and wonderful person I know, her family is the most important thing in her life and would do anything for us.  She never liked her photo being taken but after the loss of her own mum (who also wouldn't let us take her photo) she realised that photos are so important.   
Thanks for my photos, your smile always lights up my life mum.

This is my take on the Scrap it with attitude Mood Board for May

 Scrap it with attitude.

My background was created by using my new stencil and modelling paste, then spraying the paper with 'Bubblegum pink' and 'London Blue' Dylusion Ink Sprays  I created vivid coloured area to back my embellishments and photo. Other background elements included several different washi tapes, script stamping with StazOn and watercolour splats using watercolour crayons.

Journaling and embellishments are mostly from Kaisercraft; Collections 'Curiosity' and 'Telegraph Road', large and small flowers, crochet doilies, buttons and chipboard 'Mum'. I used Tim Holtz 'Vintage photo' distress ink to edge the pieces and curled and folded the butterflies to give dimension and added pearl drops for a feminine feel. Touches of cheese cloth softens the layers of paper pieces which have been distressed and inked with Tim Holtz 'Vintage photo' distress ink. The cardstock frame I covered with gesso, stamped a script stamp over it and painted the heart red. I finished off the layout with pink embroidery thread around the photo.

Thanks for coming over to my blog and seeing my latest piece of art work.
