Southern Girls Design Team challenge - Boys theme- Mar 2015

For the challenge over at the Southern Girls Challenge blog the theme is "Boys".  So having got really behind in my scrapbooking for my new grandson Olley I decided to do a mixed media layout of him playing with bubbles.  Here is the finished project.

I gessoed a piece of patterned paper then I cut another piece of paper into different sized rectangles and layered them in the centre of the page.  I then gessoed over them.  Then I stamped circles with acryclic paint, used gel medium through a bubble stencil, stencilled through a piece of sequin waste and used bubble wrap to make more bubles.  I then splattered a slightly darker paint using a toothbrush.  I stuck the photo to a piece of scrapbook paper and distressed the edges.  I then adhered it to the page.  To finish off I printed out some words and I outlined the page, the words and the rectangles of paper with blue watercolour crayon and then I added some clear domes to keep in with the bubble theme.  I hope you will join us over at Southern girls Challenge and look forward to seeing all of the wonderful entries.
