More Than Words Challenge July 2016

Hey everyone,

My mojo has come back and so I thought I'd have a go at another mixed media layout and join in with the More Than Words Challenge.
The picture I used is of me and my mum at Hardraw Force in the Yorkshire Dales. You might recognise it from the film Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, where Kevin Costner washes under the waterfall. (Well, that's what my dad says, I wasn't born when the film came out!)



The theme this month is...

I had wanted to scrap this picture anyway, it makes me SMILE because my dad took the picture, of me taking his picture. My mum is laughing at us being silly...
(I also used 'smile' in little letters on the layout... extra points? :P )
I tried to incorporate the sketch as best I could but I wanted the picture nice and big to show the waterfall behind us. 

The background was actually really fun to make. I don't have many stencils so I had to think outside the box to include some sparkle... so I grabbed my bottle of PVA glue and loosely drew big flower shapes on top. I sprinkled the glitter on top and let it dry...
The square clusters are by Things To Alter, it was a pack of two and I cut them both up to make four. I painted them white and tucked them into the layout.

Thanks for stopping by!
