Mini Masterpieces.

It's a happy Friday although just a tad too cool for my liking.

At least I get a day off work today which makes up for....well, everything really!

I remembered that I hadn't posted the final layout from one of my Two Scrapbook Friends DT Kits, using the 'Yes Please' collection by Amy Tangerine.  The first you can see way back here.

The reason I probably pushed it to the back of my mind is because I was never a fan of the finished result.  You know when occasionally you have an idea, a plan of sorts in your head as to how you'd like the layout to end up........then absolutely nothings follows 'the plan' and it ends up a far cry from what you intended?

It's not that I don't like this one as such.......maybe my obsessive, compulsive, perfectionist side just had the bar raised a little too high!

Anyhow, here we go.....Mini Masterpieces.

I do like the photograph at least - happy memories from last Summer when my niece and nephew flew over with their Mom and Dad to visit.

I like the title too......the double meaning referring to the kiddo's and their artwork.

And then I struggle to decide what else I do like!

The whole page was inspired by the background paper, which I wanted to give a messy water coloured effect.  So, I used a water brush and distress inks to randomly paint the clouds.

I also wanted to frame the photograph and hang it 'Gallery' style, so out came the white Paint Sharpie for a little freehand doodling then fussy cutting.

I had a couple of pretty polka dot glassine envelopes included in my kit, so I used them behind the photograph, perfect for holding a wooden embellie.  I also fussy cut the landscape from a sheet of PP, to use as a border strip.

Ooh.....I found something else I like.........the wording on another veneer seemed to tie in perfectly.

And that's about it.

I hope you have a great weekend, don't work too hard.

My muscles are still recovering from last weekends gardening efforts so this week, I'm taking it easy......going to work instead!

Have a good one and I'll see you Monday,
