wonder

hello, hope you are having a great week ☺  School has started up again and so we are back into normal routines.  I have a LO to share today for the White with 1 challenge: White & Grey & Tags/Tabs.
Tags are my favourite 'thing' to add to LO's at the moment.
Here's what I've come up with:
 This is a picture of my oldest boy - I was trying to get a picture of him, but he didn't want to look :(  but I do like this side profile of him ☺  This photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy II and I've edited it in Instagram ♥♥ - very impressed with the way it printed out.
So I've used MME once again!!  The background paper is from the Miss Caroline collection.
I've done a fair bit of misting and some gesso effects - here are close-up's:
 ... one of the tags - I've dry brushed it with some light grey paint, then added some mist and then did some gesso work with my new vintage doily mask from Pink Paislee ♥♥ - love the effect.
 ... the second tag I've also painted with light grey paint, then misted using clay mist and the CW template - have added in some embellishments to dress up the tag and also some background stamping with Basic Grey ink by Stampin' Up ...
... the title uses American Craft natural chipboard letters which I've painted grey... also some journalling from my typewriter (I'll have to share a picture one of these days - it's so cute) ...

Really enjoyed putting this one together - I know I've done this kind of design with the buntings quite a bit lately .... but I LOVE it.

Thanks for coming by and your awesome comments.

This is beautiful Chantelle, I love the gesso print on the tag. I sympathize over the difficulties of 'boy' photos. I have a 14 y.o who either flat out refuses or gives me a death stare if I point the camera at him xox
