Whisper & Hush

Scrap It with a Song are celebrating St Patrick's Day all month with a great selection of songs by Irish artists to get you inspired.  This week is Van Morrison's - Moondance.

I was inspired by the lyrics 'whisper and hush'

This layout about my grandson just had to be done.

  One morning just as my husband was leaving for work our grandson work up and he put him in the bed with me. He was put in my husbands half of the bed, but when I woke up a little while later he was in this cute pose and had managed to wriggle his way smack bang in the middle of the bed leaving me with a little bit of space - little monkey.

I could not resist grabbing my phone and taking a quick snap!

I used a sketch from Stuck Sketches as shown below

along with the current colour challenge from Colours Stories Inspiration shown below.

I used the items hightlighted!

  • Choose two (or more) of the following elements to include on your layout:
  • cloud accents                                     (strip of paper on right & journaling spot)                 
  • fabric (actual fabric or fabric paper), as inspired by the dress                 (for flower)
  • metal, as inspired by the lantern
  • glass or glass-like elements, as inspired by the lantern
  • create light and shadow (interpret that any way you wish)
  • use contrasting textures
Choose one (or more)of the following to inspire your journaling:
  • Document a story about motherhood.
  • Compare two people/things/events, etc. using contrasting (i.e., listing the differences)--this is inspired by the many contrasts in this image.
  • Shed light on your subject--i.e., provide more insight than is obvious from the photo.  (on journalling spot)
  • Inspiration words: light, hope, open -- Use these as a jumping-off point for your journaling.
I used the following supplies:

Echo Park - Everybody loves Christmas (Bella Road) - Scallop Stripes
Bazzill Basics Stripes
Fancy Pants - Kraft Kuts - Princess Sky
Sassafras Cardstock Stickers - Sunshine Lollipop
Papermania Boofle Fabric Paper (fabric removed from backing)

Sassafras Lass - Robotics stickers
Stabilo Bionic Black Pen
Echo Park - Dots & Stripes - Bunting
Echo Park - Life is Good - Alpha stickers
Scenic Route Paper Co - Small Random Craft Alphabet - Ampersand

Hope you enjoy this layout and remember....

A day without Scrapping is like a day without sunshine!!
