This months Prompt Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC) is to create a layout using the following:
Scrap or art journal about a favourite pastime from your youth. Was it a sport, fishing, cycling, reading, or teasing your older brother? Use a photo of when you were young, a photo of the pastime, or whatever is appropriate!!!
My layout is about my love of the outdoors as a teenager and features a rather interesting photo of me fishing when I was 13. My journaling reads:
As teenagers my friends and I would spend most of our time outside, at the beach, by the river, on our bikes, at the park or in our yards.
I have used loads of paint, stain, mist, stamping and masking to create my Mixed Media background. I chose the Glitz Uncharted Waters paper pad for the title and the colours, which worked so well with my photograph. That pink shirt was super bright in real life, and had the slogan “Think Pink” on the back – for the Cement Company (Ready Mix) that produced it as some sort of safety award my Dad and his workmates received.
The patterned papers were adhered to the background before all of that wet media was added.
