We all know ‘The Look’ dont we, the one the kids give us when they are fed up of us mum’s pointing the camera at them 24 /7 to capture every moment for our scrapbooking ? Tony’s look says it all really!
This is the sketch we had to work with and my LO . . . . .
I substituted the four photo’s for just one and set about playing with gesso and inks. I used the Its A Boy’s Life papers from Echo Park as they matched the colours in the photo perfectly but they were too bright and I wanted the photo to be the main focus so with a coat of gesso over the top it toned everything down. I got carried away with the gesso and even painted straight onto my photo! I know, scary stuff! I love the way it turn out.
Even the alpha’s had a bit of a make-over. The plain white foam Thickers looked too clean and crisp so I doodled around them with a brown journaling pen.
