Celebrate The Occasion - Boy's Birthday

Welcome back to another challenge at Celebrate The Occasion, we hope you had a wonderful holiday! This week we're celebrating the boys and their birthdays.

Challenge: Boy's Birthday

I created a layout featuring my son's first birthday (I think I'm almost done scraping this event!). I used an ultra fine tip Sharpie to write all along the white mat what he got. I had so many pictures of him opening his gifts but didn't really want to scrap them all. Then I came across a layout where the lady used large bullet points to note what her son got. I used the idea in a more streamline way.

To create my watercolor splatter background I used Distress Markers in tumbled glass, broken china and pumice stone. I scribbled a fair amount of color onto my non-stick craft sheet, then using a very wet water brush, I flicked it against my finger creating the droplets.

I used Lawn Fawn's Bon Voyage stamp set for the clouds and a very old Hero Arts stamp for the Happy Birthday.
