Ain't it Fun

 Ain't it Fun

I hope everyone has had a easy week and will have a nice relaxing weekend.  I brighted up my week by creating this colourful layout with the help of Colour Stories Inspiration #142 and Scrap it with a Song - Rock Challenge song - Ain't it Fun.

Colour scheme - All colours used
Evidence: Arrows, Stars & Circles 
Testimony: Insp word - Team

I had great fun scapping this layout and reliving the memories from this photograph.
The photo is of my son and his 3 friends playing in a neighbours back garden. The four of them were 'as thick as thieves' growing up and playing together and used to get up to all sorts of mischief.
I love using masks and decided to use two on this layout and spongue ink through them. I also used something called 'Wordle' which creates 'word cloud' using the words you type in.

For the title I decided to include the little letters on the big letter of the word fun.

I plugged the holes of most of the buttons with liquid pearls in contrasting colours.

The multicoloured 'masked' bricks reflect the bricks in the photograph and the masked circles represent the sunshine they were playing in on the day.

Used - to create the ‘word cloud’
