Artastic challenge blog - June Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the June challenge at
Artastic Challenge Blog

"Cousin Love"

This month we were challenged with this inspiration piece.

Our layout should either be vintage or feature children.

Vintage is not my thing, so I went with children.
I'd had this photo printed for awhile, as I love how the cousins are holding hands and walking together to the beach.
I hadn't scrapped it as it's a "no faces" photo and I couldn't get it to work.
With the inspiration piece of children holding hands - it was finally time to get it scrapped!

I really liked the pastel feel of the print, so I chose the Kaisercraft "Daydreamer" collection.

I chose this patterned paper because I thought it would work well but as I started to create - it was really challenging to work with!

I ended up cutting the top right corner and then remounting it on some patterned paper, with my photo in the middle and some mixed media in the background.

My journalling appears crooked in the photo but it's pretty straight on the layout - not sure what's going on there!

Thanks so much for visiting.
