Jot - May Challenge

The challenge for this month is beautiful (like all of them really) and I had just the right photo sitting on my desk waiting patiently to scrap. Love this pic of my mum and son taken last year. It was a beautifully sunny Winter's afternoon and we were in my parents courtyard.  A loving moment captured forever.

My inspiration from the mood board was the diamond rings (I could only afford to use diamant√©), the colours of course, I feel the polka dots and flowers give it a retro/vintage feel, the clock to represent the circular motif (also a moment in time) and lastly silver that I have slipped under my photo mat. The silver is contact paper I picked up at Coles a few months ago. They had heaps of sparkly contacts in time for back to school so I grabbed a silver and a gold roll. Very sparkly.

Thanks for having a look.

  1. Oh yeah! That Maggie Holmes paper is the best one to use for this challenge. I didnt' think of that! And I love that you used contact paper for the silver sparkles. So clever!
