A while back Jeni O'Connor approached me to contribute a layout for an article she was writing for Scrapbook Creations magazine (issue 81) on fathers. Phil, Jamie and I had just been to the Fringe Festival in Adelaide, where the boys had played on the dodgems and then had a great afternoon at the playground. I had snapped a few shots of them interacting, and this is what I ended up creating on my page:
Journaling: You seek out your Dad more and more these days. You wait impatiently for the weekend, when you know he will be home to play with you. Without a doubt, he is your hero.
I love the look on Jamie's face as he leans in to Phil, both enjoying and a little scared of the ride. It's priceless.
This layout was the start of my ongoing love affair with paint and splattering - I love how it messes up a layout a little bit, and makes it more suitable for a boy who is growing up.
Thanks so much to Jeni for her invitation. I was quite chuffed. And this is one of my favourite pages I made this year :)
OK, I'm off to do the kindy drop off, then I have a date with my running machine. First I have to scrounge up some energy!
