Happy Saturday! I'm crafting on my bedroom floor at the moment because my mum is decorating our craft room. 
Made a couple pages this morning using pictures I took of Nathan when we went up to Lakeside a couple weeks ago. I got some duck pictures as well, but my boyfriend is cuter than a couple of Great-Crested Grebes. I wasn't planning on using these pictures, but they came out really well. I was standing on a hill and zoomed in to take the picture in the first page and it blurred out the background... who needs a DSLR, eh?!

One thing I struggle with sometimes is page titles. I go on Pinterest but nothing quite fits...
Then I thought about what Nathan might think when I'm taking his photo.. he doesn't mind coming out with me while I take pictures... but I'm sure he'd rather be inside!
With this first page I tried to get a 'distressed' look to match the backing paper. I inked up the edge of the lined paper and used the rest of that sheet as a backing for the photograph. I ripped the edges but it still wasn't distressed enough... so I screwed it up and then stuck my photo to it and curled the edges of the paper around my photo.

I took the next photo for this specific layout, I'd seen it on Pinterest and wanted to recreate it. I used Photoshop to turn parts of the photo black and white, then cut it into strips and moved the coloured part down to emphasize it.
