And... here is my take on the sketch.
My journalling on the back of the layout says.
The twins were two months old the day of this photo, I can't believe that the time has gone so fast. Spence looked so adorable in his Superman outfit and of course I couldn't resist taking photos of them. Clint captured this photo of Spence on his phone and when he sent it to me I couldn't help but laugh. He is his daddy through and through and somewhere amongst all of my photos I have one of Clint at about the same age looking exactly the same. The Thorpe gene is so strong and the men are all peas in a pod, mini me's.
Spence is a hoot and he does not do anything that he doesn't want to and that includes smiling for the camera. He pretends he is asleep and closes his eyes, he pretends to drink his bottle and he pretends to cry and his little face just crumples up. He loves to cuddle, to be rocked to sleep, and he loves to have his little feet rubbed. He is such a little character and it is so much fun to watch it unfold and develop and I am so looking forward to this journey.
Here are some close ups.
First thing I did was to change the photo into black and white and then rubbed out the area where the superman logo was so that I was left with that piece coloured.
I used a stencil and black gesso for the background and drew the circles with a black pen. The splats are made with red paint. I found a big S in my stash and painted it red and covered it with diamond glaze. The stars were traced and cut and then matted onto the red to make them pop.
The film strip is a chippie which I painted black and the title painted red.
I tore some strips of paper for the top and bottom and added some red ric rac.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look and thank you for the comments that you leave they always bring a smile to my face.
