Tuscany

Time for another scrapbook page made with the lovely Teresa Collins "Hello My Name Is" Collection. For this one I used the March sketch inspiration from UKScrappers along with a photo of Child No.3 and her fellow G&T artists in Tuscany last year

Jimjams - Layout - Young Artists In Tuscany 2013 - for S J Crafts

Part of their pre-trip preparation was to make Renaissance-painting-inspired outfits and one of the highlights of their week was when everyone dressed up for a photo shoot in the Tuscan castle they were staying in.  I've added some gems, veneer stars and used Man O Man Sizzlits for my title.

You can read how I started using this collection here on the S J Crafts Blog (and while you're there why not check out their April Challenge ... there's a prize!).

I really like the way this spills out and down across the page, and the sharp contrast of colour are great with your photo. Don't they look splendid?

Great page. I do love the colours of this collection and the wooden stars finish it off perfectly! I've pinned it too! x

That's a great photo and you've made something special with it. I bet Child No.3 is pleased with the souvenir. Fun that they all made outfits in white and/or gold - it's all very colour-coordinated!
Nice that you have made a special page for your daughter - does she have her own "album" of memory pages? (made by mum!)

Oh that is a such a cool picture and I like the way you've clustered around the edge to make a frame. Great GBS quote too.

Love how well those papers go with the photo.

Wow! That looks like a fantastic trip and a great page to document it. When my boy went on his G&T Art trip it was to the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford. Not quite so exciting!
