Sketch Challenge - Baby Layne

 This layout is for the Scrap365 Mag challenge, and it's also for the first page in Layne's album.  He's probably only a week old in these photographs.
 I sprayed a lot of blue tattered angels mist over the blue cardstock and added an odd collection of papers.  I'd tidied a little so I had found some more ribbon and papers to play with.  Vintage tags by Tim Holtz. Patterned paper by KaiserCraft. Monsterville blurbs by Sei and some Stampin Up stamps.
Awww... I love this little guy!

One Little Word - June

 Please ignore the messy desk.
 I really liked this months prompt, Creative Play.  It was just pure fun to get out paints and spray inks and just play!
 I tried out some new techniques.  The pink bird on the branch has been covered in pink flock.  I stamped in semi-dry paint for a subtle effect and put a rub on ontop.  Used the arrow as a stencil to get the two pink arrows next to the chevron overlay.

Something about Sunflowers

 There's something beautiful about Sunflowers.
 This is the first one that's come out into flower.  There are about 3 more that should be out soon!
 I think if I was a flower I would be a sunflower.  Just leave in the a nice warm sunny spot and I'm happy.  But don't give me any water and I start to wilt.
 I need reminders to keep drinking water! I always get over-heated and dehydrated.  But I forget to have water and other juices until I already have a headache and thinking that it's so hot!!!  I got some nice thin thin thin vests and shorts for work. It gets hot inside there! so I need to keep cool.
I'm also wearing my new glasses in these photographs but you can't really see them.  Think this photograph needs to be printed out.  I like the reflection, my camera, the sun flower and the sky being all together with a thick white (door/wall) border.

Look at all the Changes!

 Our garden has changed quite dramatically over the last few months.  Lots of new things growing...
 The fences were painted this beautiful shade of silver/grey. (They were red).

 The plants really stand out against the new color of the fences.

 We have a new path way.

Even since these photographs were taken the garden has still changed!
