Ben - Aged 6

Time is running out on the current batch of challenges at Scrap Whispers. Their challenge #167 is to scrap a large square photo. Mine isn't as large as the photos in the samples, but at just less than 6"x6" it's larger than I normally scrap.

The 15th March sketch with a twist at Paper Secrets featured a single square photo so I've used that sketch as the basis for my page. This time the twist is to use items that start with each of the letters of the word LUCKY. That letter U gave me some trouble but I got there in the end. My items are: Letter stickers from Lily Bee; Union flag (on Ben's t-shirt); paper from Crate Paper; Kraft cardstock and tags; Yellow patterned paper.

I swapped various papers in and out of this page as I worked, and I changed my mind about the background several times. Eventually I put the paper layers together first and then tried them against a variety of backgrounds. The kraft worked fairly well but was just a bit plain and flat until I spritzed it with plenty of white mist and a small amount of teal mist. The mist means that I am also linking up with Scrap Our Stash's Birthday Challenge #6 which is to add mist to a page.
