This months challenge over at Scrap the Boys is to use a photo that is 5x7 or larger and here is a photo that was taken of my son - 19 years ago!

It is a dark and wintery day here today so I thought I would add some colour to my day!  Max was always dressed colourfully and loved all things that moved so it suits his personality.

I started with Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics paper and added layers of Bo Bunny paper strips, gesso and a circle stencil and texture paste.  I then added gelatos - Metallic Blueberry, tangerine and Lemon. Also some splashes of Dylusion Spray Lemon Zest and Campso Teal.  I also added some touches with a memory box stencil and distress ink - Mustard Seed.  I fussy cut embellishments from Bo Bunny "on the go" paper as well as chipboard.

Here are some close ups
