Doodling

My youngest son loves nothing more than playing on the PS2 but on those rare days you might also find him doodling in Paint on the computer and this was on one of those occasions.

October 2006 and it was howling down with rain and hadn't stopped so off he disappeared and was very quiet, always a bad sign lol, so I went to investigate and he'd been creating a picture of our two cats at that time, Pablo and Lacie...I immediately knew it was going to be one of those moments that would be scrapped eventually and here we are June 2008 and I've finally got round to making a page about it.




I didn't want to change the photo to black & white but I really didn't have any papers to match so I foolishly decided to colour in some Doodlebug paper, well I started at 9pm thinking it wouldn't take me long...oh how wrong was I and was still colouring in at 10.30pm but I stuck with it and eventually loved the overall feel that the colouring produced.





I kept to the doodling theme by adding a border around the edge with the Marvy Le Plume pens in the red, orange and blue and doodled my own title...I choose the colours to match with the cat bows and his name. I added three brads in opposite corners again in the three colours, added a Doodlebug frill for the date and a crayon button at the end of the title. Printed off his picture and a smaller scale and used a paperclip to anchor to the page, I also used to the Spiral Bound punch for Stampin' Up to look like it was ripped from a book and after a hard nights scrapping I'm really pleased with how its turned out and not a blossom in sight...amazing lol.




Take care xxx
