I love this photo of my kiddos from 2003.
I used these challenges when I created it:
- The Studio Challenges. 12th March --Half; Use a half page of patterned paper.
- ScraPerfect. March Layout challenge-- some kind of ribbon on your page as well as some fussy cutting.
This month at Pixels and Paper we are celebrating Easter with this cute inspiration image. Your page certainly doesn't have to be about chocolate or bunnies, it can be about family gatherings, school Easter hat parades, egg hunts, trips away over this holiday period, fun things you did with the kids, whatever you like really - just don't forget to tell us what inspired you from our photograph.
Here is what I created:
You have until the end of the month to join in on our challenge

Today I am sharing a way to make your background have color and texture.
I started with a pizza sized box, a piece of bubble wrap, and a spray ink.
I put the bubble wrap inside the box and sprayed it with the ink.
Then I put my paper on top of the bubble wrap and pushed down to let the ink "stamp" on my paper.
This is what it looked like.
I moved the paper and then "stamped it" again on the bubble wrap.
Once the ink was dry I added washi tape strips near the side of each edge.
Then your back ground is done.
Once I added my photo, embellishments, string, and journaling my final Page looks like this:
I f you don't have any bubble wrap you probably have some other textured material that you can use to spray the ink on. I am sure wrinkled up foil is will work. I always put my paper into some kind of box before I spray it. This helps to keep the ink from spraying all over my scrap room.
I hope you will have some fun with spray ink and bubble wrap soon!
