Just "hangin' around"

Sponsored by
*not officially my turn, but wanted to work with this image*

* using "Hanging Around"*
Desperate to get some "scrapping" done I knew
as soon as I saw this sweet image from Sasayaki
that it would make the perfect page. That's the beauty of
digi images, you can print them any size required.
I started by printing it out on an A4 paper...
and made a colour swatch with my ProMarkers.
I also printed out an A4 sheet of tiny images to use
as backing paper/borders.
Each time I added a colour to the main image
I did the same to the border strip...
then fussy cut the main image.
I have a collection of Papermania Festive Fauna papers,
which includes this Silver Birch bark piece.
I over-stamped using a mixture of tree stamps, before gluing 
mesh ribbon/strip border and main image directly onto the page.
*close up*
I already knew which photos of my boys I was going
to use...
cropped them and matted them with other papers from 
the same collection...
and added touch of distress ink to soften the edges of the 
page before edging with a dark grey marker.
Finally I used the board alphabet stickers that came with the 
papers to add a title :D
Remember, Digi images are not just for card making :D
