Scrap the Boys - August

Monochromatic layout (one colour), twine and chipboard are the criteria for this months challenge.

I came across this photo on my computer the other day. I don't  recall seeing it before. I was drawn to scrapping it and yellow just seemed to fit the bill. I love the way the photo colours pop off the yellow page.

It was great fun searching through my stash for yellow. I was surprised by how much I found. I did find that I kept wanting to add some darker colour so I went with the darker shade of yellow in the paint around the pic.

The twine and chipboard requirements I fulfilled in one go by tying yellow twine to my deep yellow chipboard buttons.

The yellow dots I have scattered are actually nail polish which I dripped onto the page. I really like the look. I got the idea from an article I read in SMB by Georgia Heald. OK I'm fairly certain it was written by Georgia but if I'm wrong I apologise :)

Anyway here he is in all his yellow glory, my boy Ben.

I can't get the colours right on this layout. It is all shades of cheery yellow but looks a lot darker because it's an icky day and I took the photo by a well lit window. I could lighten it more in Photoshop but really I can't be bothered. So if you think this might be an orange monochrome layout rather than yellow, so be it. LOL
