Pure Joy

Gracie says, KAYA!

I love this week's challenge! I had fun doing my LO especially the part where I had to paint my background. I also adore this cute picture of my little girl taken when she was just 2 months old. I've had it with me for some time now so this week's Kaya challenge was the perfect time to use it.

hi gracie. :) i agree with bjay. painting your cardstock did it for the negative space. :) kagaling mu talaga.

Gracie said...

Thank you Bjay & Teena! At first I only painted half of it but then I took the risk and painted more! I guess I got carried away. LOL. I wasn't sure if I did the right thing but in the end I actually liked the outcome. :)

great idea to paint the background. gave texture to the negative space. and the color pink it's just perfect for that sweet baby picture.
