I haven't ever played along with From Screen 2 Scrap, so I decided to give it a go this month. These photos I snapped of Ailis a couple of weeks ago were just perfect for the challenge, which uses the movie poster from "Up" as inspiration. I also included clouds (on the patterned paper), balloons, and a homemade 3D embellishment (the dandelion) for an extra 6 points. The balloons are also homemade and 3D, I wonder if I get bonus points? Heehee! I was also able to use a gorgeous Sketchy Thursdays sketch for this one!
To make the dandelion, I followed instructions at the Scrapbooks etc. website (sorry, links are not working for me here.) Then, I paper-pieced my own balloons by just drawing one out on scrap, cutting out the bits and tracing them onto cardstock. I really like how they turned out! They took a lot longer to make than sticking on a sticker, or even colouring in a stamp, but it's easy to do if you don't have the supplies. Hey, if I can do it, anyone can!
I've mentioned before that Nolan is my "difficult" child. Well, Ailis is the "easy" child. She pretty much parents herself. This day, she spent ages picking dandelions and goofing off on the fence. I'm not sure what her imagination was making up, but she was happy just doing her thing!
