This challenge was a great excuse to use some recent snap shots of my middle child at an all-school art show. I have to confess - these pictures are actually print outs as I didn't have time to get the photos sent to Costco so these will be replaced with higher quality photos soon.
I used the "Trap Door" layout from our Magic book and did hidden journaling under the 2012 scalloped shape. The journaling reads: "We were so proud of you when we found out a piece of your art was chosen for the all school art show. I was completely blown away when I saw your self-portrait. I had no idea you could paint like that! I'm so proud of my artist! Love, Mom"
I wanted my paper selections to reflect the gray tone self-portrait so I kepts to the greens, gray and blacks from the pictures. The black paper with the funky shapes doodled on it is from our new Crusin' paper pack - I thought it had kind of an artsy painter's palette feel to it. The Juniper grid paper is from Typeset and most of the rest is cardstock and retired items (trying to use up some stash before the next Idea Book comes out!).
I can't wait to see all the fun projects people come up with to enter for this challenge! I do hope you'll join in by making a project with some CTMH products and a photo and sharing with us at the Heart2Heart Challenges blog!
Thanks for stopping by!
