Augusts' challenge at scrap the boys is to use your
childs' artwork on a page.
I've used a Self-Portrait by one of my boys.
I think he did a pretty good job, can you see a likeness. :)
It's actually on a 12x14 sheet of paper so I wasn't sure at first
how I was going to incorporate it onto the page, especially considering it was larger
than my page!!!
I didn't want to cut it up so instead I stuck it down over about 2/3 of my white cardstock and then on the other 1/3 I used paint and stencils to continue the colour and basic design my son had used on the background of his self-portrait.
I then folded the excess part of the painting behind the 12x12 cardstock.
Here's a picture of the layout with the painting completely unfolded.
And a close-up showing the seam where the two edges meet.
thanks for looking. :)
