Southern Girls Challenge # 77 - Make Believe

Hi everyone.
Just wanted to share with you the layout I created for the Southern Girls Challenge Blog for August.
The theme was make believe, and I chose to use a photo from about 10 years ago of Blake inventing a new use for supermarket shopping bags!!
I am not sure they were all that successful at keeping him dry in the pouring rain....but he had heaps of fun trying it out!

For this page, I used a lot of mixed media. I created this page using a heavy card with a gessoed background, then added texture paste which I stamped into while wet, and finally lots of spray inks. I then used the papers from the my mind's eye collection, kate and co - oxford lane; to create more layers to hold the photo. The large chipboard star was covered with "lightbulb" washi tape ( courtesy of Chellie Keenan.....thanks Chellie!!!), and accented with glossy accents on the bulb area. A sprinkling of sequins, and a title from thickers, and I call this page "done".

Thanks for looking. And don't forget to share your creations on the blog as well to be up for a wicked prize!
