Continuing with Aussie Scrap Source's Colour Theory series, this week we are exploring tints and shades. I decided to scrap with tints - which are hues that have white added to them. In other words, pastels!
Journaling: He is five and a half. He is in reception at school. He loves computers, the Wii and his PSP. He learns Japanese. He is reading level 7 readers. He has lost two baby teeth. He tells me he hates school but PE is OK. He is funny and kind. He plays soccer and tennis, and takes swimming lessons. He loved contructing stuff. He is amazing.
Pastel coloured scrapbook pages are usually associated with pages about babies or little girls, but not so much with boys. But I'm really rapt with how this page turned out, and I'm wondering what has held me back using pastels more. I think I worry that they'll turn out too babyish. There's no chance of that here - and I've added some kraft elements - twine, aged stickers and kraft cardstock - to my page to try to add a bit of masculine depth.
I'm pretty happy with my page. Head over to the Aussie Scrap Source blog to see more about colours and projects from the other talented design team members.
Well, I'm heading back to the couch now. I have been urgh, sick this last week. 'Flu compounded by a nasty sinus infection that has left me in bed for the better part of the last week. But I'm on antibiotics now, and hopefully will be back on my feet soon.
