Scrapbook layout

I've just completed a layout of my grandson who has a cheeky little smile that melts your heart.
The photo was taken last year by the corn fields near by.
I've used a lace cut edge paper by Dejaview .
Scraps of paper that are also from the same paper maker. I often go through my scraps to see what can be used on layouts.
I've also used some chip board buttons & a butterfly & a heart which I'd coloured with Versafine Vintage Sepia.
I found a Bingo type card in my stash with the month on & circled the number 1 which was the date of the photo.

Whats on Your Wpork Desk Wednesday # 354

On my desk today I have my monthly mini project life album open at the back of my desk & in front I have two photos for  February left to do  of myself & daughter in law with the youngest Grandson meeting Pepper Pig in our local Library last month.
Although Grandson likes watching Pepper Pig like most children when they meet characters they go all shy & every time pepper pig moved, her head came away from her body but I don't think he noticed that.  
Anyway if your wondering why i'm showing my desk today hop over to Julia's & you will find out why

Journal page Thoughts

I started my journal page using black acrylic paint which had been applied using a baby wipe, also blue & white acrylic paint  & then I sprayed some Glimmer mist , Bronze, & Blue Denim over the top to give that lovely shimmer & shine.
I've used a large Dylusions stencil which I went round the shape to highlight it with a posca white & gold pens.
The letters were cut using a sizzix alpha die & I used a couple of stamped images already in my stash.

March Postcard Swap

The theme for the postcard swap over at
is to use spring colours.
I've used Claudine Hellmuth Studio acrylic paint Yellow Pastal & Landscape green through a stencil to give me my back ground.
I then stamped over this with a Jofy paperartsy stamps & colours with the same paints as my back ground.
I stamped a butterfly & used alpha stamps by Tim Holtzs.
The circles I've used Cosmic shaimmer Penny Copper through a stencil.
I'm pleased with how my postcard turned out & fits in with spring colours.
