The Little Ones


My two little boys, in this photo they would have you believe that butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths.
For this page I have used a combination of mediums stencilling, stampin, dry embossing and even sewing around the edge of the page to add character.
I have a lot of my mother in me, she had a button box full of bibs and bobs and I collect just about anything that I can put on a scrapbook page, which in this page is evident.
From the thick piece of string from a clothing bag, pearls from a broken necklace, a ribbon bow from I don’t know where, combining that with hand made flowers, wooden leaves, canvas die cuts, crystal wire trees, brads, a glass button and a resin mushroom married together with scraps of paper and balsa wood.
I hope this gives you some ideas; boy pages don’t have to be boring.
                                                         Have a scrappy day
